Gut Health Clinic


Gut Health Clinic

Welcome to the Gut Health Clinic, a dietetic led clinic for those who suffer with gastrointestinal disorders.

The main objective of the Gut Health Clinic is to direct and support dietary changes to help manage gut symptoms, such as:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Bloating
  • Gas/wind
  • Altered bowel habit
  • Reflux
  • Nausea

The above symptoms can be stressful, debilitating and socially isolating, and we specialise in dietary interventions to help you identify your personal food triggers. Ultimately we strive to improve your wellbeing and “Quality of Life”.

The Dietitian

The service is led by Clinical Dietitians  Lorraine Maher and Emer O’Driscoll.

Conditions

People who have been diagnosed with the following conditions would benefit from the Gut Health Clinic:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) (treatment includes low FODMAP diet)
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), e.g. Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s Disease
  • Coeliac disease
  • Suspected food intolerances
  • Functional gastrointestinal disorders including chronic constipation
  • Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux Disease (GORD)
  • Ileostomy and colostomy output management

How it works

The process typically involves  1-3 consultations.

During this process, we aim to take you from the point of having uncontrolled symptoms, to understanding and having better management of your digestive symptoms.

Each consultation will include a dietary assessment and an analysis/monitoring of your symptoms, using tools developed and proven by researchers at King’s College London. You may also be asked questions about your lifestyle and social factors such as work and stress, so that your dietitian can understand the factors that may be impacting on your condition.

Your dietitian will offer you tailored advice based on your needs and goals, and she will review progress, adapting the diet as necessary.

You will also be given comprehensive evidence based written materials to support the advised dietary changes.

What does it cost?

Initial consultations take approximately one hour, whilst follow up appointments take 30 minutes. A two appointment bundle is also available.

Initial consultation – €95

Follow up appointments – €65
