Are there any special precautions regarding diet and oral medications for ostomates?

Colostomates or urostomates usually have no dietary restrictions, and medications are absorbed normally. There are some changes in food and medication absorption if a patient has an ileostomy. An ostomate is encouraged to work with their pharmacist and dietician to determine the best diet and medications for the type of stoma they have.
