Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


The goal of clinicians managing nutrition support for patients with home parenteral nutrition (HPN) is to adapt nutrition needs to best serve the consumers, so they may have the best quality of life despite specialized nutrition needs. Some HPN consumers may desire to participate in endurance athletics, which will require special considerations. This review is intended to outline key nutrition differences in endurance athletes that a nutrition support team should consider when providing HPN.
