Diagnosis at Mayo Clinic

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Appointments

Mayo Clinic accepts appointments in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota and at Mayo Clinic Health System sites.

Tests and procedures used to diagnose short bowel syndrome include:

  • Lab tests. Blood tests and stool tests can detect low levels of nutrients and other chemicals related to digestion. Knowing which nutrients your body is deficient in helps guide your treatment.
  • Imaging tests. Imaging tests may be used to assess your small intestine.
