In brief: Complex

Mesenteric ischemia is a blood supply problem with the interstinal tract.
It indicates blockages in the arteries that supply blood to the small and large intestine. It is often found in people with heart disease with coronary artery disease. The best diet is low fat, low sodium with mostly vegetables, fruits, and legumes with small amounts of beef, and minimal fried foods.
