IBD Maid – A modified anti-inflammatory diet trial

HREC/2019/QRBW/57618

Researchers at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH) are seeking adults with mild to moderately active Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) to participate in an 8 week dietary intervention.

The purpose of this research is to determine if following an anti-inflammatory diet prescription reduces disease activity, improves quality of life and influences gut microbiota diversity.

What’s involved:

  1. Complete one 20 minute telehealth (requires access to either a PC, Laptop, Mac, tablet or smart phone) or face to face appointments for assessment (questionnaires, diet intake interview, blood tests).
  2. Complete two to four 15 to 30 minute telehealth or face to face follow up appointments.
  3. Follow a dietary prescription for a minimum of 8 weeks (some meals or resource and some ingredients provided).
  4. Provide up to 4 stool samples (home collection kit provided).
  5. Complete a weekly diet checklist.
