This is more or less an update to the Mouth Sores topic. I imagine that all of the various products take some time to work, however at this point, my mom can't swallow anything. She is actively using her PEG tube, but I am worried that she is not inputing enough calories. She is only putting about 3 boosts in there (720 or so calories per day). My mom is somewhat small (125 LBS) and about 5'4' or so. How many calories should she be consuming? I assume at least 1,200 per day?
Thanks so much for your help.
