About Course

The nutritional management of adults and children with short bowel syndrome is complex. The overall clinical course and nutritional outcomes are impacted by various factors including remaining intestinal length and site, functional differences between the proximal and distal small intestine, and the presence of the colon. Join Registered Dietitians Gabriela Gardner PSM, RD-AP, LD, CNSC and Ana Sesatty MDS, RDN, CSP, LD, two experts in the short bowel arena, to learn more about this complicated disease state in both the adult and pediatric populations.

They will discuss the clinical nutrition management and priorities of individuals with short bowel syndrome as well as highlight different nutrition strategies that may help promote intestinal adaptation with an emphasis on the role of whole foods and fiber for this population. The discussion will include medical nutrition therapy strategies for oral diets as well as enteral formula options that may help improve outcomes through the use of whole foods and fiber intake.
