Home TPN for SBS
It is estimated that 10,000 – 20,000 Americans are currently living with SBS.
What is Short Bowel Syndrome?
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
- Long-term kidney or liver problems
- Kidney Stones
If you are living with SBS and on home TPN, close monitoring of your nutrition and care is key.
