While many people believe nutrition management equates to weight loss and fitness, GI practices increasingly view nutrients as a tool to influence GI physiology. In coordination with nutritionists and dietitians, gastroenterologists are seeking strategies and treatments that strike an appropriate balance of proteins, carbohydrates and vitamins in their patients' caloric consumption to promote sound gut health. The 2019 Freston Conference will examine how nutrition can combat a range of GI disorders and how diet supports improvement across the care continuum.
