Tube Feeding: Chemical Crap
I'm looking to pick your brains for any info on tube feeding products. My brother suffered a massive stroke recently and is on tube feeding for the next few weeks (hopefully no longer!). I examined the cans of tube feeding formula and was appalled at the crap they are feeding him- PLUS, while I was there they came in checked his blood sugar, and then returned to give him an insulin injection! This is a man who is not overweight and has never been diabetic, so the need for insulin was purely due to the crap they are feeding him. The first 3 ingredients after water are: corn maltodextrin, corn syrup, and canola oil.... And he is supposed to start to heal on this kind of "nutrition"? I would try to come up with my own formula for him, but I live 2,000 miles away, so that's kind of tough. Anyone familiar with any brands of formula that might be less spooky?
