The 'not so short-bowel syndrome': potential health problems in patients with an ileostomy
Patients with an ileostomy tend to have low body weight, BMI, LBM and BMD. They also tend to have low urine volumes, and some are depleted of Na, Ca and Mg. Abnormalities are greater in those with a lower urinary Na and measuring this will identify ileostomists at risk of Na depletion who will be benefitted by Na supplements.

Abstract

Patients with an ileostomy tend to have low body weight, BMI, LBM and BMD. They also tend to have low urine volumes, and some are depleted of Na, Ca and Mg. Abnormalities are greater in those with a lower urinary Na and measuring this will identify ileostomists at risk of Na depletion who will be benefitted by Na supplements.
