Enteral tube feeding intolerance* is estimated to affect 33–38% of adult patients, with clinical manifestations including nausea, vomiting or regurgitation, diarrhoea, abdominal pain or distention, or high residual gastric volumes.1–3
Peptamen®, Peptamen® AF, Peptamen® Vanilla and Peptamen® HN are all supported by clinical evidence. The Peptamen® range is the only family of 100% whey peptide formulas for the early years to adulthood.
