Thanks for that link on the Ehlers-Danlos version of malabsorption and gut problems. The slide show had a lot of overlap with the naturopathic - leaky gut books with some elaborations.
One whole area seemed to be missing in the slide show: major digestive factors like stomach acid, pepsin, bile, and pancreatic enzymes - along with their recovery or replacement. Without digestion, anything and everything can go wrong; there are many on-ramps for the digestive highway to hell. Achlorhydria or hypochlorhydria with concurrent or subsequent small bowel bacterial overgrowth and multiple digestive organ dysfunction seems to be common.

The whole areas of digestive dysbioses and therapeutic nutrition have been the soft underbelly of medicine for decades now, that has so much aided the rise of fledging naturopathic medicine. The GI MDs lapses have probably been aggravated by the marketing for scopes and proton inhibitors. This whole area swirls with controversy. Once everyday IV nutrition is involved like the E-DS slides showed, I would worry about competence or Munchausen syndrome by medicine....

These are often the symptoms of inadequate vitamin C levels
or even scurvy. Oral vitamin C absorption has long been recognized as erratic in the general population, much less chronic/acute disease and GI problems. However many nutrients are likely to be missing with malabsorption, and may temporarily require very high loading doses of concentrated nutrients for repletion - the enhanced nutrient levels in slide 67 can easily be incomplete and on the low side for vitamins and non mineral nutrients. ...1400
