    i think the answer is ileum
    conjugated bile acids and also terminal ileum
    can adapt to absorbing all nutrients

    I say it is in the ileum.

    In the chronically inflamed ileum, unique mechanisms of alteration of similar transport processes suggest regulation by different immune-inflammatory mediator pathways. In a rabbit model of chronic ileitis, we previously demonstrated that Na+-glucose cotransport was inhibited by a decrease in the cotransporter numbers, whereas Na+-amino acid cotransport was inhibited by a decrease in the affinity for the amino acid.
