Featured Cases: Nutritional Challenges and Complications in Patients with CF

Volume 2, Issue 6.

Improvements in nutrition have been a key factor in reducing morbidity and mortality in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF.) In this issue, Dr. Sarah Jane Schwarzenberg will summarize current progress in the definition and epidemiology of 2 CF GI-related issues—small intestinal bowel overgrowth (SIBO) and distal intestinal obstruction syndrome. The discussion continues with case studies to illustrate causes of nonpancreatic enzyme–related defects in fat absorption, including the use of omega-3 supplements.
