The malnutrition clinic provides intensive nutritional care to patients with malabsorption with or without undernutrition. These individuals often suffer from intestinal failure, which may be caused by short bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, malabsorption, fistulas, radiation enteritis, bowel obstruction, and ischemic bowel disease. Our intestinal rehabilitation program provides a range of care that includes dietary instruction, vitamin and mineral supplementation, nutrition support, and medications to improve intestinal absorption. On occasion an individual is referred to a surgeon when it is believed that an operation may improve intestinal absorption and quality of life.
