A 78 year old patient with type 2 diabetes mellitus was hospitalized because of weakness and poor nutritional status. For several years, he suffered from an unintended weight loss and chronic, pulpy diarrhea. On examination, we found a severe loss of muscle and fat tissue as well as difficulty swallowing. An adequate nutritional therapy with combined parenteral and enteral nutrition was implemented under regular monitoring of electrolytes and volume status, under which the state of health improved noticeably, while steatorrhea improved under substitution of pancreatic enzymes.
