Home nasoenteric feeding for malabsorption and weight loss refractory to conventional therapy

Annals of Internal Medicine 98(2): 168-170

Two patients with malabsorption syndrome and weight loss refractory to conventional pharmacological and dietary treatment were examined in a metabolic ward. Baseline studies indicated moderate to severe protein-energy malnutrition and severe energy, fat and nitrogen malabsorption. Metabolic balance studies on low-fat elemental formula infused nasoenterally during 18 h indicated improved retention of nitrogen, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium and energy when compared with a solid food diet.
