People with SBS who rely on medical foods

Short Bowel Syndrome (SBS), a type of intestinal failure, occurs when a significant portion of the intestine is absent. Most cases of SBS occur because a significant part of the intestine was surgically removed. Complications often include dehydration, malnutrition, electrolyte disturbances, vitamin deficiencies and poor growth; intravenous (TPN) and enteral therapy therefore need careful management to prevent these adverse outcomes
