Abstract

Food avoidance is common with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and adherence to dietary guidelines is poor, contributing to under and over nutrition. Reasons for food avoidance have not been previously explored in detail. This study of IBD outpatients aimed to describe food avoidance patterns and rationale behind this, and describe source and confidence with dietary advice.
