Nutrition Guidelines for Patients With Short Bowel Syndrome

key information

source: Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

summary/abstract:

Eat 6 to 8 small meals a day

Eating small, frequent meals will put less stress on your shortened bowel. Small meals help control your symptoms, and will result in better digestion and absorption.

Eat slowly and chew your food well.

Once your bowel has adapted, you can resume having 3 meals a day.
