Our GUT Health Programme
The majority of our clients come to us totally frustrated and at the end of a very long line of unsuccessful investigations. Others attend after avoiding many food groups for years due to their ongoing gut symptoms again with no success. Avoiding foods is common practice, however, this can lead to the depletion of essential macronutrients, vitamins and minerals if you do not have a safe structured programme of re-introduction. Eliminating long-term can leave you feeling lethargic and low and at risk of other medical conditions. In addition to this, medications that you may be taking to assist you ie with acid reflux – when taken long term, will rob you further of essential micro-nutrients – a vicious cycle is created.
Due to these findings, we at 121 Dietitian have devised this specialist GUT Health programme Belfast to address these common, but serious concerns, we have several programmes alongside the Low FODMAPS diet to ensure your symptoms are resolved and your health is at its best.
- To start, a 121 Dietitian programme our 7 Day Food Diary and Diet Plan Questionnaire are completed by you. This is analysed by us to assess your full nutritional status and health before your appointment.
- A 60 min consultation discusses your macro and micro-nutrient diet and health along with, if appropriate, the Low FODMAPS to eliminate your symptoms. A 4-8 week elimination diet is then provided with email support 24/7.
- Detailed additional, personalised, nutritional written advice, recipes, shopping lists are provided to assist your bowel to be seamless and as perfect as possible. Blood tests may be required to assess and assist possible depleted micro-nutrients.
- Review appointment – after 4-8 weeks to ensure your symptoms have resolved and if required the re-introduction of foods eliminated and further email support.
- All specialist literature from Kings College London is included.
- Liaison and consulting letters to your GP and Consultant are inclusive
