A new study has found that the Crohn’s Disease Exclusion Diet (CDED), a novel whole-food based dietary approach, combined with Modulen IBD, a Nestlé Health Science nutritional supplement for partial enteral nutrition, is effective for the management of Crohn’s disease.
Nestlé Health Science leveraged the results of the study to create ModuLife, a platform to support dietary management for patients with Crohn’s disease.
Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) which causes inflammation of the lining of the digestive tract and may be a result of an immune system malfunction. It is noteworthy that low back pain, osteoporosis and arthritis associated with this disease could be managed by a physiotherapist.
