C4’s The Food Hospital features Addenbrooke’s diet for Crohn’s patients
17 November 2011
Channel 4’s The Food Hospital on Tuesday 15 November featured a 22-year-old dancer with Crohn’s disease.
The programme showed her following both a liquid diet and a LOFFLEX diet – low fat, limited fibre, exclusion – to help manage a flare up of her Crohn’s disease.
The LOFFLEX diet was developed and researched at Addenbrooke’s Hospital.
In some cases, the Addenbrooke’s gastroenterology team recommends a liquid diet for treatment of active Crohn’s disease and a LOFFLEX diet for food reintroduction and help with maintenance of remission. Such dietary treatment should always be conducted under the supervision of a doctor and a dietitian.
If you would like further information about dietary treatment of Crohn’s disease, please talk to your local healthcare team or dietitian.
If you would like to be seen at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, you will need to get your GP to refer you to one of our IBD consultants, Dr Miles Parkes or Dr Stephen Middleton.
