About the Live Broadcast and Presentation:

Once believed to be a rare disorder, congenital sucrase-isomaltase deficiency (CSID) is increasingly recognized as an overlooked cause of unexplained abdominal pain and functional GI symptoms in pediatric and adolescent patients. Characterized by reduced or absent sucrase-isomaltase enzyme activity, this genetic condition results in undigested sugars and starches in the small intestine and colon and variable symptoms that can include chronic diarrhea, abdominal pain, failure to thrive, gas, and bloating.

Join Joel Rosh, MD and Tanaz Danialifar, MD as they discuss the latest data regarding CSID and review practical strategies for recognizing and treating this condition in contemporary clinical practice.
