Lecture Overview

Did you know that up to 80% of your nutrients are absorbed in the small intestine? So, what happens if you have your small intestine removed due to disease or cancer? Bowel disease and disorders can significantly impact on an individual's nutritional status, and this poses a challenge for the interdisciplinary team. See if you can identify some practical work-arounds to help those with bowel disease achieve complete nutrition.
