A Comprehensive Approach
Home TPN for SBS


We combine education, support, and 1-to-1 clinical care to build a comprehensive plan so SBS patients can thrive. Short bowel syndrome (SBS) is a challenging condition for all involved – patients, their families and their caregivers.

It is estimated that 10,000 – 20,000 Americans are currently living with SBS.

What is Short Bowel Syndrome?


Short bowel syndrome is a condition where there is loss of portions of the small bowel or loss of function of the small bowel – the large bowel may also be affected.

Since the small intestine is where the majority of the nutrients you eat (fats, carbohydrates (sugars), vitamins, minerals, trace elements) are absorbed, home TPN provided intravenously (IV) may be used to provide proper nutrition in the comforts of your home, usually at night.

In addition to monitoring your labs for nutritional deficits, it is important to monitor your risk for developing any long term home TPN and SBS complications:
  • Bacterial Infections
  • Dehydration
  • Diarrhea
  • Sepsis
  • Thrombosis
  • Long-term kidney or liver problems
  • Kidney Stones
  • Acidosis
