Sucrose Intolerance (CSID) with Kara Siedman, RD

Let's Gut Real - Easy to Digest Nutrition Science

Science & Medicine

Today I have Kara Siedman here to chat with us about sucrase isomaltase deficiency (CSID) and discuss overlap with IBS presentation. Once thought of as extremely rare and only diagnosed in paediatrics, CSID is being found to be more prevalent than we once thought. With symptoms overlapping with IBS, learn how the conditions are similar, and how to move through helping patients find the right diagnosis.

Kara Siedman is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Certified Diabetes Educator, and the Manager of a well-established nutrition practice within a large gastroenterology clinic in Colorado. Kara is also a certified yoga teacher whose nutrition philosophy embraces real food, integrative medicine and mindfulness. Kara’s goal is to help patients reach their maximum potential in health and wellness through a whole foods, individual and functional approach. In her spare time, you can find Kara on the yoga mat or kickboxing at home and playing in the woods with her husband and fur baby.

Kara and I chat about:

  • What sucrose intolerance (congenital sucrase isomaltase deficiency or CSID) is
  • What are the symptoms?
  • Who is at risk?
  • How is it diagnosed?
  • What sorts of foods do people have to avoid or limit?
  • How diet plays a role in managing symptoms, and considerations with overlap in IBS patients
  • What medication options are there?
