Cases on Medical Nutrition Therapy for Gastrointestinal Disorders Book Review:

Medical nutrition therapy plays a central role in the management of diseases including reducing disease risk, slowing disease progression, and monitoring nutritional status. Though a nutrition care process has been implemented in some countries, many do not have a national standard for nutrition and dietetic practices for different diseases including the scope of gastrointestinal disorders. Moreover, there is no guidance to dietetic practice by most of the governing bodies of the world. Cases on Medical Nutrition Therapy for Gastrointestinal Disorders presents real-world case studies on nutrition assessment, diagnosis, intervention, monitoring, and evaluation standards and practices. Moreover, the cases provide critical updates on the use of medical nutrition therapy for gastrointestinal disorders that include but are not limited to Celiac Disease, Crohn’s Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, constipation, and bowel obstructions and discusses strategies for the prevention and management of these disorders. Registered dietitians, dietetic interns, nutritionists, healthcare professionals, researchers, academicians, and students will benefit from the scenarios presented within this book.

Bioactive Food as Dietary Interventions for Liver and Gastrointestinal Disease Book Review:

"Optimum functioning of the liver in conjunction with the gastrointestinal system is critical for health. They are critical for the digestion and absorption of nutrients and foods to produce growth. Nutrients and non-nutrients are important modulators of the liver function. The symptoms related to liver dysfunction include both physical signs and symptoms of abnormal absorption of fat, changes in blood sugar, and altered metabolism. Bioactive Food as Dietary Interventions for Liver and Gastrointestinal Disease provides evidence that foods and their compounds can modify some liver and gastrointestinal diseases"--P. [4] of cover.

Bioactive Food as Dietary Interventions for Cardiovascular Disease Book Review:

One major example of the synergy of bioactive foods and extracts is their role as an antioxidant and the related remediation of cardiovascular disease. There is compelling evidence to suggest that oxidative stress is implicated in the physiology of several major cardiovascular diseases including heart failure and increased free radical formation and reduced antioxidant defences. Studies indicate bioactive foods reduce the incidence of these conditions, suggestive of a potential cardioprotective role of antioxidant nutrients. Bioactive Food as Dietary Interventions for Cardiovascular Disease investigates the role of foods, herbs and novel extracts in moderating the pathology leading to cardiovascular disease. It reviews existing literature, and presents new hypotheses and conclusions on the effects of different bioactive components of the diet. Addresses the most positive results from dietary interventions using bioactive foods to impact cardiovascular disease Documents foods that can affect metabolic syndrome and other related conditions Convenient, efficient and effective source that allows readers to identify potential uses of compounds – or indicate those compounds whose use may be of little or no health benefit Associated information can be used to understand other diseases that share common etiological pathways

New Concepts in Inflammatory Bowel Disease Book Review:

Inflammatory bowel disease is a chronic immune-mediated inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract of unknown origin, which includes Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, and inflammatory bowel disease of unclassified type. It is associated with different intestinal and extraintestinal manifestations like different neurological and psychiatric disorders. Histology is an important tool in the diagnosis and prognosis of inflammatory bowel disease and has an increasing part in patients' management. The objective of treatment is to make and keep long-lasting remission by immunosuppressive treatment like corticosteroids, thiopurines, and monoclonal antibodies directed against tumor necrosis factor alpha. Therapeutic drug monitoring of thiopurines by measuring levels of their metabolites has been proposed as a potentially effective tool in optimizing therapy in inflammatory bowel disease. Diets and their components influence microbiota of the intestine, function of the epithelial barrier, immune response, and other factors that have an important role in development and treatment of inflammation in the gut mucosa.

Crohn s Disease Book Review:

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic inflammatory gastrointestinal disease resulting from an excessive immune response to intestinal microflora in genetically predisposed individuals. There is mounting evidence to suggest that the personalisation of diets to specific genotypes may be able to modulate the incidence and severity of disease in the IBD population. The move towards human dietary intervention studies is inevitable. It is therefore imperative that accurate and non-invasive methods for the evaluation and monitoring of an individual's disease state are identified and optimised. The aim of this study was to optimise the monitoring of disease development during mouse experiments, and develop biomarker investigation methods for assessing disease state and the efficacy of dietary interventions, with respect to IBD inflammation, for future human studies. This study investigated metabonomic and transcriptomic approaches to biomarker analysis for disease state identification in IBD mouse models. The aims of the study were twofold. The first aim concerned the analysis of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) as a suitable tool for the identification of biomarkers in biofluids, examining both individual biomarker methodology and pattern recognition analysis. The second aim addressed the use of pattern recognition analysis of gene expression profiles of spleen tissue to identify biomarkers associated with intestinal inflammatory events. This study has identified two individual biomarkers of intestinal inflammation from NMR analysis of urine for further validation: allantoin and sucrose. Multiple regression analysis (MRA) of binned NMR spectra was identified as an effective method of NMR pattern recognition analysis. The transcriptomic biomarker approach used correlation analysis to compare gene expression profiles with intestinal inflammation. Eight probes were identified as significantly correlated with a histological injury score (HIS). This study has developed and validated several biomarker analysis strategies that could be applied to human studies. Overall, MRA was found to be a valuable tool for biomarker pattern recognition identification and analysis. Both metabonomics and transcriptomics proved to be useful screening tools to identify biomarker profiles in IBD mouse models. The research has provided a critical foundation for identifying relevant biomarker profiles of accessible human tissues to support human dietary intervention studies related to the amelioration of symptoms associated with IBD.

Nutrition and Gastrointestinal Disease Book Review:

Nutritional support of people with gastrointestinal impairment is critical to treatment and ultimately successful management. As such, gastroenterologists should be experts in nutrition and knowledgeable about the affects of nutrition on disease management. Nutritional and Gastrointestinal Disease fulfills that need, serving as a hands-on, practical reference in nutrition support for the clinical gastroenterologist and other clinicians with similar interests. The volume offers expert nutritional knowledge and management ideas as well as methodology for combating problems such as short bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease and obesity. Renowned authorities also investigate nutrition’s influence on such issues as liver failure and acute pancreatitis. While gastroenterology training programs around the world remain deficient in their nutrition curriculum, Nutritional and Gastrointestinal Disease provides a comprehensive and groundbreaking support for clinical gastroenterologists.

Engineering the Human Gut Microbiome Through Personalized Dietary Interventions Book Review:

The human gastrointestinal tract is home to a dense and dynamic microbial community. The composition and metabolic output of the human gut microbiota have been implicated in many diseases: from inflammatory bowel disease, colorectal cancer, and diarrheal diseases to metabolic syndromes like diabetes. Treatment of these diseases will likely require targeted therapeutic interventions aimed at modulating the abundance and metabolism of specific commensal microbial species or probiotics. A promising avenue for such interventions is through diet, where the dietary components act as substrates for the species producing beneficial metabolites one wishes to enrich. In this thesis, I focus on a dietary intervention study in healthy individuals. Since the human gut microbiota is known for its highly heterogeneous composition across different individuals, it comes as no surprise that a more personalized approach is preeminent. We first test effects of multiple micronutrients spiked into a fixed diet. Using a highly controlled diet within the cohort, we identify strong and predictable responses of specific microbes across participants consuming prebiotic spike-ins. However, select macronutrient spike-ins like unsaturated or saturated fat and protein, produce no predictable response. We next investigate prebiotic supplement in diet further as well as its downstream products, short chain fatty acids, in the digestive tract. We look to alleviate the stress of a highly controlled, low complexity diet on participants by testing the effect of different prebiotics simultaneously ex vivo. We show that individuals vary in their microbial metabolic phenotypes (as in they produce different quantities and proportions of short chain fatty acids from the same prebiotic inputs) mirroring differences in their microbiota composition. Finally, we run a pilot study to elucidate how closely our ex vivo experiment results may reflect the in vivo changes following a short-term dietary fiber supplementation. In addition to obtaining preliminary data on this direct comparison, we also explore different parameters for generating high-throughput data on personalized dietary interventions. Together, these projects provide the framework for building a predicative model for the effect that prebiotic dietary supplementation will have on gut microbiota's composition. Such a prediction model would be equally helpful in both enhancing individuals' gut health and improving gut dysbiosis in cases of disease.
