  • Overview

    Achieving the goal of enteral autonomy is one of the biggest challenges when managing patients with short bowel syndrome. Join Dr. Valeria Cohran and Dr. Kishore Iyer to learn how GLP-2 analogs can reduce the number of total parenteral nutrition (TPN) days in adults and children and even allow some patients to be successfully tapered from TPN.
