Crohn's Disease ; Other Treatment



Some people who have Crohn's disease need additional nutrition because severe disease prevents their small intestine to absorb nutrients. Additional supply of fluid can be done through a tube placed in the nose and down into the stomach (enteral nutrition) or through a vein (total parenteral nutrition, or TPN). The provision of additional food may be needed if:

- Crohn's disease is not controlled with standard treatment.
- Short bowel syndrome occurs. This occurred when many of the small intestine has been removed through surgery or affected by diseases that can not properly digest food and absorb adequate nutrition.
- Happens sumbatan intestine.

Nutrition therapy can restore good nutrition to children who grow more slowly than usual. This also can build strength if you need surgery or weakened due to severe diarrhea and malnutrition.

Total nutrition from the outside allows the bowel to rest and heal. It may relieve an acute attack and allows the operation be delayed or avoided. But this is a general tendency to occur again when the TPN (Total Parenteral Nutrition) and stopped to return to a normal diet. TPN does not change the long-term results of Crohn's disease.
