Hi everyone my dad is on his second week of chemo and the doctors are very impressed with the results they are seeing. The swelling in his face has gone down a lot and as of now they think things are moving in the right direction! But we are still not out of the woods yet, he is still on a G-tube and still has a trach. We have been trying to meet with a nutritionist, and finally talked to her. I have been doing a lot of research on the Alkaline diet, and the cancer free diet. I have also talked to a lot of people on here about it. So my question is does anyone know of a liquid formula that is used for G-tube feeding that is sugar free, follows the Alkaline diet, and is healthier! Everything we read is so conflicting as is the nutritionist, he is currently on Isosource, which has maltodextrin, and sucrose which are forms of sugar that we are told he should stay away from! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
