Abstract (Summary)

Diet is a key factor in the development and progression of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). A variety of diets have been studied with IBD patients. This cross-sectional survey identified current healthcare practitioner views on different diets and their efficacy with IBD patients. Diets were rated on awareness, compliance, and contributors to success by participants (n = 181). Frequencies were conducted, and ANOVA with Duncan pairwise comparison or chi-square analysis were used to determine significant differences. Most participants (96%) and 98% of registered dietitians (RD) considered using diet to help treat IBD patients. RDs perceived the low fiber or low residue diet easiest for patient compliance (4.2 ± 1.0, P < .05), and the specific carbohydrate diet hardest for patient compliance (2.4 ± 1.4). Initial and follow up consultations with a RD significantly contributed to patient success across all diets, and greater involvement from the RD may solve issues with compliance.
