A Teens Guide to Gut Health





A Teen’s Guide to Gut Health



by Rachel Meltzer Warren

The discomfort and embarrassment of IBS and other digestive disorders are hard enough for adults to deal with. For teens, it can be difficult to diagnose digestive diseases, challenging to navigate school and the cafeteria, and all-around isolating and stressful. As a registered dietician, Warren has helped teens transition their diets and seen the success of following a low-FODMAP diet to end the symptoms of IBS, Crohn’s, colitis, and other digestive diseases.

With an emphasis on clarity and positivity, not deprivation, teens will learn how to find relief. A Teen’s Guide to Gut Health features 30 easy-to-follow recipes that are gluten-free (with vegetarian options) so teens can feed themselves meals they would want to eat. There is also a chapter to the concerns of real teens, answering questions, advice-column-style – no matter how embarrassing!
