199. Assessing Abdominal Bloating: Common Causes and Tailored Treatments

Tuesday, October 23
9:45 AM - 11:15 AM
CE: 1.5

Session Level 2 - Intermediate

Abdominal bloating is often the primary symptom associated with multiple gastrointestinal disorders, but it can have numerous etiologies and will therefore only respond to dietary interventions and medical treatments that are tailored. Through use of assessment techniques such as a food/symptom recall, RDNs are uniquely equipped to facilitate the medical diagnostic process and expedite symptom resolution for patients. This session will equip RDNs to understand the pathophysiology underlying common causes of abdominal bloating so that they can target their assessments and treatments more effectively, and leverage the RDN/MD relationship toward improving patient outcomes.

  • 5220 - Gastrointestinal disorders (disease/disorder)
