Treatments for Malabsorption
Treatments for Malabsorption:
The treatment plan for malabsorption varies depending on the cause and underlying disease, the severity of symptoms, a person's age and medical history, and other factors.
Treatment often involves pinpointing and replacing missing vitamins and nutrients with supplementation. Other medications may be needed depending on the underlying conditions. Medications may include antibiotics for an intestinal infection and anti-inflammatories for such conditions as inflammatory bowel disease. Surgical procedures may be required to treat some underlying diseases as well.
Dietary changes are also often necessary. For example, avoiding gluten in the diet is vital in preventing damage to the small intestine that leads to malabsorption. Avoiding any foods that may irritate the bowel is important for such conditions as inflammatory bowel disease, and eliminating alcohol is a key component in the treatment of pancreatitis.
