Malnutrition is common in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD). The goals of nutrition therapy are to maintain or restore nutritional balance, a key principle in the overall management of IBD for many patients. Every effort must be made by healthcare professionals to consider diet and nutrition as an important part of patient’s IBD management, and provide individualized care based on patient need. The resources provided here are designed to educate medical professionals about nutrition and IBD based on evidenced-based research.
