Abstract: The human intestine is a complex and variable in lenght organ, oscillating between 3 and 8 metres, depending on the individual characteristics and the techniques used to measure it. The main function of the intestine is to get a suitable incorporation of food into the body and this is carried out by menas of the digestion and food absorption processes. When these functions fail, Maldigestion and Malabsorption appear. These have characteristic clinical data and must be studied with the help of specific techniques for every digestive step and every food (fat malabsorption, proteins and carbohydrates tests).
