Nutrition and You

Carol Ireton-Jones, PhD, RD

With this article, we are pleased to introduce a new column in the newsletter. “Nutrition and You,” written by one of several dietitians who have long been active with the Oley Foundation, will address issues related to food and beverages. Carol Ireton-Jones, PhD, RD, has written this first article, in which she introduces the team of dietitians who will be writing this column, and also addresses some of the issues consumers might face in the upcoming holiday season.

For many years, food and “nutrition” were less visible components of home parenteral and enteral nutrition (HPEN), with the technical aspects (tubing, pumps, technique) in the forefront. Now we know that what a consumer eats and/or drinks — even if they absorb very little — is extremely important. Laura Matarese, PhD, RD, LDN, FADA, CNSD, Cheryl Thompson, PhD, RD, CNSD, Marion Winkler, PhD, RD, CNSC, and I are excited to be starting this new column.

We are all dietitians. Laura is the Director of Nutrition at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center’s Intestinal Rehabilitation and Transplant Center. Cheryl is a consultant who develops online medical education such as the Oley MY HPN modules. Marion, who is at Rhode Island Hospital, works with nutrition support patients in the hospital and at home. Laura, Cheryl, and Marion are all on the Oley Foundation Board of Trustees. I am in private practice and also do consulting in nutrition support.

We are writing this column for you, the consumer. What information do you need or want about nutrition? Please e-mail your ideas to us at cireton-jones@foodtherapyrd.com, or send them to the Oley office, care of Lisa Metzger at metzgel@mail.amc.edu (or 214 Hun Memorial MC-28, Albany Medical Center, Albany, NY 12208).
