“IBD patients are demanding it, but at the moment doctors don’t have any evidence-based dietary guidelines to recommend,” said dietitian and nutrition researcher Barbara Olendzki, RD, MPH, assistant professor of medicine in the Division of Preventive and Behavioral Medicine and director of the UMMS Center for Applied Nutrition. “Our aim is to provide a dietary therapy approach that addresses nutrient adequacy, malabsorption issues and symptom relief, and facilitates remission. We hope to show through further research that this may alter the course of the disease.”

"The diet, created by Olendzki and her colleagues, is called the IBD Anti-inflammatory Diet (IBD-AID) and was published in the Nutrition Journal"
