A) Malabsorption of Nutrients


Cascading Problems 


Malabsorption of Nutrients


When you suffer from IBD, UC, Crohn’s this can lead to a whole gamut of cascading problems which is important to be on the look out for.


Cascading problems such as:

    • Malabsorption of nutrients, causing malnutrition (often undiagnosed)
    • B12 Deficiency, which if it goes undiagnosed can lead to pernicious anemia
    • Inadequate Vitamin D3 levels, leaving your immune system at risk
    • Ineffective or low levels of good intestinal gut flora, putting your immune system at risk
    • Bone Density Loss, Osteopenia, or Osteoporosis
    • Fatigue
    • Problems with Concentration
    • Improper Digestion
    • Leaky Gut Syndrome
    • Intestinal Permeability
    • Extra-Intestinal Symptoms of Joint Pains, Skin Rashes, Eye Problems
    • Depression and Anxiety
    • Headaches
    • And of course digestive issues of: Diarrhea, Constipation, Bloating, Gas, Cramping, Abdominal Pain, Distention, just to name of few of the many symptoms


Has your Doctor told you to be on the lookout for these Cascading Problems?


So, what can you do about these Cascading Problems?


1) By being proactive and being aware, you’ll be on the lookout for these problems before they occur


2) By being aware of these problems, you’ll be able to see the symptoms and know what they correlate to

3) By putting in place certain checks and balances, you’ll be in a position to assess these problems


As it relates to Malabsorption of Nutrients, Assesment tools such as:


Gluten Blood Test


( done once, and enables you to adjust your diet accordingly)

As we have covered this topic of Gluten intolerance in several of the past Updates, for all those suffering from any Auto-Immune Disease, especially including any IBD, UC, Crohn’s, and even IBS, this is an important trigger to the inflammatory process within the body, therefore it would be very important to find out if there is an intolerance.

Celiac Disease Antibody Screening Test,

for those of you who may suspect Celiac Disease

Celiac disease is a lifelong digestive disorder affecting both children and adults. The disease is probably under-diagnosed in that it may affect as much as 1% of the population of the United States. This condition is characterized by an immune-mediated reaction to gluten that causes inflammation in the small intestine and does not allow food to be properly absorbed.


Celiac Disease is not a food allergy and is not the same as a wheat allergy… it is actually an autoimmune disease.

4) By taking some simple steps, you’ll be able to pre-empt some of these problems


Now that you know which cascade of problems to be on the lookout for, what can you do to prevent them? Let’s get through each one, and see how to pre-empt them:


A)  Malabsorption of nutrients, causing malnutrition (often undiagnosed)


Adding much needed Liquid Vitamins and Liquid Minerals


When you have gut issues, such as in IBD, Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, and even IBS, your stomach and all its associated organs are already taxed enough; that’s why supplementation with liquid vitamins and liquid minerals is so important and essential because they are in the form that is already bio-available to your body – your stomach has nothing to break down since it’s already liquid.


Per Livestrong.com:

” …Your body absorbs liquid vitamins better than its pill counterparts do. In fact, the body absorbs approximately 98 percent of the vitamins and minerals contained in liquid form. However, the body only absorbs anywhere from 3 to 20 percent of the vitamins in a vitamin pill. Moreover, liquid vitamins bypass digestive processing and go directly into the bloodstream within minutes…”
