People with Malabsorption due to liver or pancreatic disease who rely on medical foods

The main role of your small intestine is to absorb nutrients from the food you eat into your bloodstream. Malabsorption syndrome refers to a number of disorders in which the small intestine can’t absorb enough of certain nutrients and fluids. These nutrients can be macronutrients (proteins, carbohydrates, and fats), micronutrients (vitamins and minerals), or both.

The Medical Nutrition Equity Act will provide key support for those Americans who rely on medical foods to survive and thrive.
