Description

Nutrition plays an important part in a range of conditions seen in early childhood, including allergy, constipation and vomiting. Some nutritional deficiencies (such as iron and vitamin D) are common in western societies, even though unavailability of food is not an issue. These problems may have long-term implications for health. This session explores the symptoms, causes, diagnosis and management of a number of frequently encountered nutrition-related conditions. This session was reviewed by Amanda Avery and updated in February 2017.

Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Explain the management of constipation and what factors might point to a possible underlying cause
• Identify the foods most commonly implicated in food allergy
• Describe the role of allergy testing
• Distinguish between normal and abnormal gastro-oesophageal reflux
• Explain the causes and consequences of iron deficiency
• Describe the effects of vitamin D deficiency

Dr John Puntis qualified from the University of Southampton medical school in 1977 and then trained in Birmingham as a paediatrician before taking up a consultant post in Leeds as Director of Neonatal Services in 1990. With a research interest in clinical nutrition, he developed a regional gastroenterology service and now works full time in this specialty. Together with nursing, dietetic and pharmacy colleagues within a multidisciplinary nutrition support team (NST), his work involves managing children with a variety of congenital or acquired gastrointestinal diseases. The NST provides advice and support throughout the Leeds Children’s Hospital for patients with a wide range of nutritional problems, including those needing long-term enteral tube feeding and parenteral nutrition, as inpatients or at home.
