There is a lot of talk about probiotics these days, but did you know that they come in many forms?

Probiotics can come in:
-Pill forms
-Powder forms
-Certain fermented foods (yogurt and kefir)
-Certain functional foods with added probiotics such as cheese, cereals, drinks and more


It’s important that you talk with your doctor, pharmacist, or dietitian first before taking a probiotic, to ensure you know why you are taking it.
Together, you can select an appropriate probiotic that is the most suitable for you.

Is occasional constipation normal?

Constipation is the most frequent gastrointestinal complaint that patients bring up to their physician.

Many factors can contribute to constipation, including:

1. Changes in diet- Eating very sweet of salty foods.
2. Sleepless nights- There is a strong association between insomnia and constipation.
3. Lack of water- If you aren't drinking enough water, it becomes easier for waste to get stuck in the colon and become drier and harder.

Unsure how to treat constipation and/or when to see a doctor?

It's day 10 of our ! Today, we're talking about hemorrhoids. Just reading that word makes some people wince in anticipated pain and discomfort. Hemorrhoids can be embarrassing, uncomfortable and painful, but are rarely a cause for medical concern.

The signs of a hemorrhoid look different depending on their location and other potential complications. Hemorrhoids are often silent visitors, but may leave a few noticeable signs and symptoms, including:

-Discomfort or pain
-Itching
-Blood in stool

CDHF is excited to announce a new program, Gifts for Gut Health, in support of the Oakville Food Bank!

Across the world, 690 million people go to bed hungry. 1 in 5 Canadians reported going hungry at least once between March 2020 and March 2022. Hunger is a persistent issue, and food banks are one of the most efficient and cost-effective ways to ensure that more people are fed.

We know millions of Canadians suffer from a digestive condition, or have specific dietary requirements, but this is not always addressed in food banks.

This holiday season, with your help, the Canadian Digestive Health Foundation would like to support the Oakville Food Bank with food, coupons for full size products, and monetary donations to help those with specific dietary needs.

Learn more about the program and purchase a gift for gut health by making a donation today: https://cdhf.ca/en/gifts-for-guts/

(A recommended donation of $25.00 per gift is recommended.)

Thank you to Black Diamond for your support in this program!

12/21/2022

While taking a full course of antibiotics is important for getting rid of pathogens, it also damages the commensal “good” gut microbes.

Antibiotics reduce the number of different bacteria in the gut which reduces the diversity of the ecosystem.

If we want to protect the gut microbiome while taking antibiotics, it makes sense to use a probiotic that is resistant to those drugs. As a yeast, S. boulardii CNCM I-745 is the only probiotic resistant to any tested antibiotics!

Ontario is joining several other provinces and territories by expanding the use of biosimilar drug treatments for Ontarians. 🇨🇦

The Ontario Drug Benefit (ODB) is implementing some changes to their biologics coverage including a nine-month transition period that is set to start March 31st, 2023 where recipients who are on an originator biologic will begin to transition to a Health Canada approved biosimilar version of the drug at no cost.

For those with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) who are being administered Humira (adalimumab), or Remicade (infliximab) you will be required to transition to a biosimilar. Exemptions to the initiative will be considered on a case-by-case basis, in consultation with their health care provider.

While we believe in patient-physician choice, we acknowledge political policy decisions and our organization is committed to providing clear and unbiased information on biosimilars.

Probiotics are generally defined as live microbes which, when taken in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit to the person taking them. In plain language, probiotics are “good microbes.” These friendly microbes help us digest food, maintain health, and fight disease.

Recent evidence has shown that probiotics play significant roles in gut microbiome composition.

Having a rich and diverse gut microbiome has become an important biomarker for gut health as numerous studies have observed lower diversity as being associated with various diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), type 1 diabetes, obesity and other health concerns.

It's day 7 of our !

Approximately 6.8 to 7.4 million Canadians suffer from at least one food intolerance.

If you have a food allergy, your body mistakenly labels something in that food as dangerous, activating the same defense system that fights off invading viruses.

Unlike a food allergy, a food intolerance is a digestive system response and is generally not life-threatening.

People who are lactose intolerant have unpleasant symptoms after consuming milk or milk products. 🥛

Normally when someone consumes lactose, an enzyme that’s produced in your small intestine called lactase, breaks down lactose into its simpler components (which are simple sugars called glucose and galactose).

However, if you’re lactose intolerant, your body does not make enough lactase to break down lactose!

It’s day 5 of our !

There is a lot of talk about the low FODMAP diet and what FODMAPs are.

Well, FODMAPs are types of carbohydrates (sugars) found in everyday foods. FODMAPs are carbohydrates that may be poorly absorbed in the small intestine of some people.

If you’re starting out with the low FODMAP diet, knowing which foods are allowed and which ones aren’t can be extremely daunting. Never fear – a little knowledge can go a long way, especially when utilizing Metro’s My Health, My Choices program.

Constipation is the most frequent gastrointestinal complaint that patients bring up to their physician.

For many, our gastrointestinal tract follows a regular schedule of bowel movements. It could lead to as many as 3 bowel movements a day or as few as 3 bowel movements in a week. If this delicate schedule is disrupted, it can lead to gastrointestinal symptoms and constipation.

There are trillions of microorganisms living in the gut, comprised of dozens of different species performing important metabolic functions.

Gut microbes help us break down foods like fibers that we wouldn’t otherwise be able to process and are also key for the development of the immune system.

They help the body tell the difference between dangerous disease-causing microbes and helps the immune system learn not to attack itself. 🤒😷

THANKSGIVING TUMMY TIPS

Feeling bloated (the feeling of fullness) after eating is usually not a cause for concern, as it is a normal part of the digestive process. Distention – which is the visible expansion of the stomach, is also very normal. Our stomachs will naturally expand throughout the day as we eat. ESPECIALLY around a holiday when you are eating foods you don’t regularly consume and in larger portions.

However, when either bloating or distention is accompanied by discomfort and pain, that is when there can be a cause for concern, and there are some changes you can make to potentially help.

We have put together some top tips for common digestive troubles this thanksgiving: https://cdhf.ca/health-lifestyle/top-tips-for-common-digestive-troubles/
