Short bowel syndrome: What the RDN needs to know

  • October 20th, 2016
Active in competitive sports, 16-year-old Sara was headed to volleyball practice when the abdominal pain became too much. A bowel obstruction related to undiagnosed Crohn’s disease led to her first small bowel resection. A little more than a year later, adhesions from the first surgery along with progression of her inflammatory bowel condition led to a second bowel obstruction. This time the significant necrotic tissue required removal of more than 60% of her remaining intestine. Beyond recovery from surgery, a diagnosis of short bowel syndrome signifies that the way Sara’s body processes nutrition may be permanently effected.

There’s so much for our profession to celebrate!
