Disease relevance of Steatorrhea


High impact information on Steatorrhea

  • The runting syndrome consisted of retarded growth, oily hair, alopecia, and steatorrhea [6].
  • Colipase and maximally activated pancreatic lipase in normal subjects and patients with steatorrhea [7].
  • Daily stool weights increased significantly in three of four patients, though none had steatorrhea; there was a significant reduction in excretion of secondary bile acids; neutral sterol degradation rates were not affected by the drug [8].
  • CONCLUSIONS: Bacterial lipolytic activity should survive better within the gastrointestinal lumen than porcine lipolytic activity and be more effective to treat steatorrhea [9].
  • Steatorrhea and low lactase activities were found in more than 85% of the patients [10].
