Insights Into the Different Effects of Food on Intestinal Secretion Using Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Plant foods may stimulate intestinal secretion through chemicals designed to deter herbivores, including lactucins in lettuce and rhein in rhubarb. This may increase ileostomy output and induce diarrhoea in people with intact bowels. OBJECTIVE We aimed to determine the effect of food on intestinal water content using Magnetic Resonance Imaging… (More)
