Abstract

Chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction (CIP) is a gastrointestinal motility disturbance characterized by recurrent episodes of postprandial nausea and bloating in the absence of mechanical obstruction of the small bowel or colon. Weight loss and severe malnutrition are often seen in advanced stages of the disorder. This article discusses the nutritional management of patients with CIP, focusing on general dietary as well as enternal and parenternal nutritional support. Enteral access methods and various enteral formulas used in CIP are also discussed.
