Short Bowel Hydration Hints

I am posting information about a Webinar that ThriveRx is hosting next Friday, June 4th at noon. I just saw a trial run of the talk and it was fantastic. I really wish I had seen it about 3 years ago. The talk is free and open to anyone. It centers on oral hydration tips but it would work for those without short bowel as well.

“Hydration Hints for the

Short Bowel Consumer”

Presented by Maria Karimbakas, RD

June 4th at 12 noon

Topics to be discussed:

v Causes of Dehydration

v Signs and Symptoms of Dehydration

v Treatment Options

v Preventing De-Hydration

v Review of Oral Re-hydration Solutions

Maria Karimbakas is a registered dietitian. She has worked at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Nutritional Restart Center in Hopkinton, MA, and currently she works as a consultant for ThriveRx. Maria has co-authored several abstracts and papers on the subject of diet and SBS.
