Free EFAD webinar: "Nutritional recommendations in Cystic Fibrosis"

Thu, Oct 15, 2020 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM CEST


Description: The life expectancy of patients with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is increasing steadily, mainly due to medical advances. CF has now become a chronic disease that continues into adulthood1. Thus, the increased prevalence of CF-related comorbidities as well as the appearance of complications related to nutrition, such as cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and obesity, represent new challenges to the health professionals.

Current nutrition guidelines still recommend a higher energy, protein and fat intake in CF patients in reference to the healthy population. Moreover, the current guidelines2 also acknowledge concerns of increased saturated fats in the diet in relation to long-term outcome. Nutrient intake should be adjusted individually to achieve normal growth and nutritional status while avoiding obesity. In addition to nutritional recommendations for specific nutrients, promoting a balanced diet and a lifelong healthy food behaviour must remain a priority of the dietary intervention.

Speaker: Ines Asseiceira is a Dietitian since 2010 in Dietetic and Nutrition Department at Hospital de Santa Maria, Academic Medical Centre in Lisbon. Her internship was very diversified, and she also had contact with all areas of nutrition, and that allowed her to choose for clinical nutrition. Since the beginning of her nutrition degree, Pediatric Nutrition revealed to be her passion. Ines Asseiceira has focused her attention on one of Pediatrics’ most challenging and interesting fields: Gastroenterology and Pneumology. Thus, she has invested a lot of training skills in this area particularly in the link between pulmonary and gastroenterological disease
