Stool Manipulation: a Dietician's Perspective

Lecture: Stool manipulation: a dietician's perspective

Louise Mudge (BSc (Hons), MND, APD) is an Accredited Practising Dietician with 19 years clinical experience, working both in private practice as well as her previous role as the senior dietitian for Digestive Diseases, Royal Adelaide hospital. She currently works as part of the team at GastroSA with a group of consultant gastroenterologists who have offices in North Adelaide and the QE Specialist Centre in Woodville.

Louise will be talking to us about stool manipulation particularly looking at dietary fibre and the emerging area of FODMAPs (Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Monosaccharides and Polyols). She will explain the differences between soluble and insoluble fibre and dietary sources of FODMAPs as well as their mechanisms of action on the gastrointestinal system and effect upon stool consistency.  She will provide guidance as to when to recommend changes in fibre and FODMAP intake based on our patients presenting bowel symptoms i.e. constipation, diarrhoea, incomplete empting, wind/bloating.
