Page 1 of 4

Nutrition strategies aim to prevent malnutrition and dehydration, and maintain the best possible nutrition status. This may include oral eating, enteral nutrition, and parenteral nutrition. All methods may be used by patients in their homes.

Nutrition support specialists (registered dietitians, nurses, doctors) play a key role in helping manage short bowel syndrome (SBS). Nutrition specialists will tailor the approach used to each person according to their individualized needs and provide detailed dietary guidelines.

Nutritional needs may change over time.
