Intestinal Failure

Intestinal failure (IF) is when the intestines lose the ability to digest food and absorb fluids and nutrients. It’s a condition that significantly hinders the quality of life for those who suffer from it, requiring daily management. Our research explores what role nutrition plays in the development of IF and how to better treat it.
