Post Graduate Course: Select GI Disease States and Nutritional Implications (PG1-2021)

9:00 AM – 1:00 PM ET

Because the GI tract’s main role in the body is to process foodstuffs in an elegant, coordinated fashion, it is no surprise that alterations to the GI tract due to surgery or disease states can result in serious nutritional status decline. This GI tract preconference course will tackle five common GI processes known to be associated with nutritional compromise: 1) gastroparesis/small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, 2) cirrhosis, 3) irritable bowel syndrome, 4) chronic pancreatitis and diabetes type 3c, 5) constipation in enterally-fed disabled patient. The underlying etiology of malnutrition, as well as meaningful interventions to prevent or combat malnutrition, will also be presented.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  1. Identify pancreatogenic diabetes mellitus (Type 3c) in the patient with chronic pancreatitis and design an appropriate nutrition regimen to maximize both exogenous and endogenous nutrient utilization
  2. Describe the nutritional challenges that individuals with cirrhosis face and devise a nutritional prescription to reverse sarcopenia and improve outcomes
  3. Explain the pathophysiology and diagnosis of IBS and application of diet modification in symptom management 
  4. Identify early and aggressively manage constipation in the child or adult with neurodevelopmental disabilities or limited mobility
  5. Describe the methods of diagnosis and differential diagnosis of gastroparesis
  6. Discuss the evidence for dietary interventions in the patient with gastroparesis
  7. State the rationale, results and optimal selection of patients for pyloromyotomy or G-POEM
