SBS and Malabsorption: What to Look for

 

Many babies and children with short bowel syndrome (SBS) experience symptoms like diarrhea, dehydration, and poor growth. Infants and children with SBS may also have an increased risk of developing food allergies. This may be due to damage to the inner lining of the intestine causing the immune system to react to food proteins.

Other causes of malabsorption can also result in significant malnutrition.
