1st BOMSS accredited SG dietary booklet is launched
The 1st BOMSS accredited dietary advice for sleeve gastrectomy patients has been published. This dietary information provides a resource for dietitians to use with patients following sleeve gastrectomy surgery.
The sleeve gastrectomy diet sheet development project was led by Nerissa Walker in Sheffield, working in collaboration with BOMSS and Nutrition and Diet Resources UK (NDR-UK). The working group involved experienced specialist bariatric dietitians from around the UK, patients and surgeons.
The dietary information contains nutritional advice for sleeve gastrectomy patients through the dietary stages, with appropriate practical food choice advice and meal ideas for each stage. There is also comprehensive information regards portion sizes, dietary rules to follow after sleeve gastrectomy surgery and food group advice.
The dietary stages have been written to allow the bariatric dietitian to determine the length of time on each dietary stage, providing flexibility for the dietitian to adapt the timeline to complement the local bariatric centre preference.
“This long awaited resource is the first collaboration between BOMSS and the NDR- UK to produce a good quality, peer-reviewed sleeve gastrectomy dietary for dietitian’s to use with patients,” said Nerissa Walker, Specialist Dietitian for bariatric surgery. “I hope that the sleeve gastrectomy dietary information will be used routinely by bariatric dietitian’s and that BOMSS and NDR-UK can work together in the future to produce other good quality bariatric dietary resources.”
The resource is available from Nutrition and Diet Resources UK (NDR-UK).
