Can formulas be used with malabsorptive disorders/diagnoses?

Yes. The gut is adaptive to real food and formula can be used for numerous diagnoses. Start slow and titrate, but the gut will likely adapt similar to any standard or specialty formula.

Transition from your current formula to Functional Formularies products in a step wise method. Substitute half to one pouch for half to one can/carton of your current formula as appropriate. Clinicians must use their clinical judgement, but research has indicated that “specialty/elemental” formulations are often tolerated/digested similar to standard formulations.
