One of the first questions a patient with inflammatory bowel disease asks their physician after their diagnosis is “Doctor, what can I eat”? Amazingly, despite over 50 years of research in the field of IBD, there is no uniform consensus answer to that question. The selection of free to read articles from Inflammatory Bowel Diseases below give an overview of the potentially important role of nutritional therapy in inducing clinical remission, especially in children with newly diagnosed Crohn disease. While exclusive enteral nutrition has been utilized for over 30 years, two small studies by two independent groups (Boneh et al, Gupta et al) suggest that enteral nutrition in combination with a limited diet may also be effective. Other papers in this collection describe the impact of enteral nutrition on the intestinal microbiota, the improvement of anemia with appropriate nutritional therapy, and the potential of endoscopic mucosal improvement with nutritional therapy. Therefore, the papers in this collection constitute “recommended reading” for clinicians who want to talk about the impact of diet on patients with inflammatory bowel disease.
