General medications to treat short bowel syndrome include antibiotics to prevent bacterial overgrowth, H2 blockers to treat too much gastric acid secretion, proton pump inhibitors to treat too much gastric acid secretion, choleretic agents to improve bile flow and prevent liver disease, bile-salt binders to decrease diarrhea, anti-secretin agents to reduce gastric acid in the intestine, hypomotility agents to increase the time it takes food to travel through the intestines, leading to increased nutrient absorption, growth hormones to improve intestinal absorption, teduglutide to improve intestinal absorption. Typically, the SBS treatment regime includes Teduglutide (Gattex) hormone, L-glutamine, or Somatropin (Zorbtive), a human growth hormone.
