Diet and Inflammation
DIET AND INFLAMMATION: CAN FOOD PROMOTE OR PREVENT INFLAMMATION?
Inflammation is a normal and highly impressive response by our body in response to injury or infection. However, as dietitians we are increasingly hearing more about inflammation as a response to diet. Is it true that certain foods may be causing or exacerbating symptoms of chronic disease such as diabetes, heart disease or gastrointestinal diseases? Can eliminating these foods cause our patients to improve their health or prevent developing chronic conditions? In this one hour webinar, we will discuss the current literature and research on pro inflammatory diets and anti-inflammatory diets and learn the truth behind these claims and any benefits that following these dietary changes can have on our patients.
Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:
  • Understand what chronic and acute inflammation is and what causes or promotes inflammation.


  • Discuss the research behind pro / anti-inflammatory diets or research to dispute these claims.


  • Discuss the foods that may potentially correspond to inflammation in the body.


  • What chronic diseases have been associated with inflammation and how diet may be connected.


  • Discuss a treatment approach with patients who wish to follow an anti-inflammatory diet.
