Nelson has had his PEG for a few weeks now and we are using the prescribed formula - Osmolite 1.5. We are having a hard time meeting his calorie goal and he continues to lose weight. We are able to consistently get in 4.5-5 cans of the 7 that are goal.
Did anyone start on formula and switch to smoothies? Do you switch it up? I've seen the recipe section, just trying to find out what made the decision for or against the formula based diet when you were 100% PEG dependent. One major advantage to the formula is that our insurance covers 100% of the cost, but we are open to a switch for better weight management.
