Summary

Malabsorption can involve any of the macronutrients or micronutrients, and these disorders may be congenital or acquired. Determining the type of malabsorption and root cause is essential to providing appropriate nutritional therapy. Multiple formulas, supplements, and dietary regimens exist to target specific defects in the digestion, absorption, and assimilation of nutrients. In addition, many new nutrients are undergoing investigation that may become a standard part of care in the future, including probiotics, prebiotics, and various amino acids.
