Diet research aiming to reduce pain in the gut

Research Pulse podcast: Episode 15


Most people know that a nutrient-dense diet of whole foods can improve your health in countless ways. But if you live with ulcerative colitis, a form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which can cause painful inflammation in your digestive system – this maxim isn’t so straight forward.

In this episode, we speak to Dr Alice Day about her work that is uncovering exactly what type of diet is best for people with IBD, which can be a lifelong debilitating condition with no cure.

Dr Alice Day is a post-doctoral researcher with the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Translational Research Group at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital and Basil Hetzel Institute in Adelaide, and holds an adjunct role as a clinical dietitian.
