The main symptoms include diarrhea, dehydration, weight loss and malnutrition. Currently, treatment options include medication, nutrition therapy, injectable nutrition and supplements to improve intestinal functions and absorption of nutrients.

However, ongoing research on promising pipeline drugs and nutraceuticals is estimated to provide new opportunities for market growth over the forecast period.
