Consultation and Outreach with a Registered Dietitian
Carbohydrate tolerance and the severity of gastrointestinal symptoms are highly variable among patients diagnosed with Congenital Sucrase-Isomaltase Deficiency (CSID). For this reason, dietary restrictions should be customized for each patient. To ensure a restriction diet meets each individual’s nutritional needs, the patient who still has symptoms while on Sucraid therapy should be referred to a registered dietitian specializing in gastroenterology for diet assessment, education and follow up.
In This Section
A restriction or elimination diet may be beneficial if a patient still has symptoms after initiating Sucraid therapy.
Eliminating dietary sources of both sucrose and starch may be recommended for only one to two weeks, as such a diet may not be nutritionally complete. After two weeks, sucrose- and starch-containing foods may be systematically added back to the diet while monitoring for gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms.
