Danish term or phrase: en blodåre udenom om tarmsystemet
In a Danish text for patients, parenteral nutrition is described as: ernæring via en blodåre udenom om tarmsystemet
My problem is with "udenom om" - how do I translate this in English please?

Many thanks

Many thanks for this suggestion and for identifying the unnecessary 'om' in the Danish. I like Sue's suggestion of 'bypassing' too.

a vein circumventing the gut


Explanation:
A text for patients should be kept as simple as possible.
For example:

Parenteral nutrition: The person/patient is fed through a vein circumventing the gut.
The patient is fed intravenously circumventing the gut.

neutral  Dr Sue Levy (X): "gut" is not a polite word for many English speakers - we don't usually refer to the gut in humans, unless it's a beer gut :-)
