Ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease and in general from chronic inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) are spreading more and more, also due to changes related to incorrect lifestyles.

Problems for patients suffering from these pathologies are due to a chronic disability which often makes difficult and painful every daily action: patients themselves are afraid to talk about them, due to the unpleasantness of the symptoms.

Cachexia is a pathological state characterized by loss of appetite, extreme thinness, reduction of adipose and muscle masses, thinning of the skin, weakening, slowing of psychic abilities. Main causes can be: malnutrition, also related to old age, chronic debilitating diseases, severe pathologies of the endocrine system, infectious diseases (such as HIV), senile and non-senile dementia, anorexia nervosa, advanced malignant tumors.

A particular cause of cachexia is due to mechanical or functional problems with swallowing. Alongside nutritional supplementation, it is therefore necessary to develop particular formulations products that are hyper-nutritional but easily ingested and at the same time reduce the risk of ab-ingestis.

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease causesing damage to small intestine.
