When a large portion of an infant or child’s small intestine or colon is removed, there is less area to absorb nutrients and fluids. Short bowel syndrome (SBS) may cause malabsorption as the child is not getting the nutrients they need to grow and thrive.
Many infants and children with SBS present with different symptoms including diarrhea, poor growth &dehydration. They may also have a higher chance of developing food allergies due to damage to the intestine’s interior lining.
SBS may cause malabsorption.
