Indications And Clinical Uses: A high nitrogen, fibre containing complete liquid formula. Designed for persons with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes or stress hyperglycemia and normal gastrointestinal function. For oral or tube feeding use.
Not recommended when a low residue tube feeding is required.
Precautions: Not for parenteral administration.
Dosage And Administration: 1 250 mL or 5 550 kJ (5 cans or 1 330 kcal) provides at least 100% of the Canadian RNI (adult males, 25 to 49) for protein and essential vitamins and minerals. Ready-to-use and does not require dilution with water. For oral use it may be fed at room temperature or chilled.
Tube Feeding: Feed at room temperature. Follow a physician’s or dietitian’s directions. When initiating feedings, the flow rate, volume and dilution are dependent on the patient’s condition and tolerance. Care should be taken to avoid contamination of the product during preparation and administration. Additional fluid requirements should be met by giving water orally with or after feedings or when flushing the feeding tube.
Feeding should be initiated at a slow rate. Rate and volume of feeding can be increased gradually over 48 hours if well tolerated. If intolerance develops, return to previously tolerated rate, or dilute formula to half strength until desired rate is achieved, then switch to full strength. Do not alter strength and volume at the same time. Rinse the tube with 20 to 30 mL water after each intermittent feeding or every 3 to 4 hours during continuous feeding to avoid clogging and provide additional water.
