If a child is unable to tolerate enough of his/her feeding orally to grow and requires that nutrition is given by vein (IV parenteral nutrition), it can result in severe liver disease. This is called cholestasis. IV fat that children receive may be contributing to this liver disease. A different fat mixture comprised from fish oil could be used in place of intralipid. This is a compassionate use of the fish oil and not a comparison of the two. We believe the ... Read More
