A care for client with Malabsorption Syndrome In partial fulfillment of Related Learning Experience (R.L.E) Submitted By: Roderos, Mitch Angela BSN 4C GROUP II S.Y 2011-2012 Clinical Instructor Sir. Oliver Virata
INTRODUCTION The human gastrointestinal (GI) tract is the site of absorption of a wide variety ofingested nutrients,including vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates and fats.Much of this absorptionoccurs in the small intestine(SI), where the high surface area provided by thevillous andmicrovillous architecture optimizes uptake of dietary substances. The specialized SI mucosacontains numerous digestive enzymes on its surface,as well as an intricate network of lymphaticsand blood vessels providing access to the bloodstream. Adequate digestion and absorptiondepend on a multitude of factors, including mechanical mixing, enzyme production and activity,proper mucosal function, adequate blood supply, intestinal motility and even normal microbialecology. Accordingly, malfunctions in any of these components can lead to failure to absorbnutrients from the diet, often resulting in some combination of diarrhoea,steatorrhoea,malnutrition, weight loss and anaemia. The resultant symptoms are known as the malabsorptionsyndrome(s), which can be grouped bytheir aetiology into three broad categories.Thus,malabsorption may result from maldigestion, such as occurs in inadequate mixing (e.g.after gastrectomy) or in enzyme or bile salt deﬁciencies, from mucosal or mural problems, suchas various enteropathies or neuromuscular conditions, or from microbial causes,such as bacterialovergrowth and various infections ⁄infestations. The vast number of causes of intestinalmalabsorption precludes an exhaustive review. Therefore, we will attempt an overview of themost common and interesting aetiologies in the three categories, with a morecomplete discussionof a handful of entities in each,along with a review of current concepts. Special emphasis will beafforded to mucosal problems, as well as to several microbial conditions.
