Heavy on Protein, Light on the Gut

Tolerance to tube feeds is often poor in patients with impaired GI function, leading to a range of unpleasant symptoms. Peptide-based tube feeds have been shown to improve tolerance.1, 2

Nutrison Peptisorb Plus HEHP is a new peptide-based option for tube-fed patients

with GI intolerance symptoms. The high energy, high protein formulation has been shown to improve patients’ tolerance, increase their compliance and may even help to lighten their mood.2

A 28-day clinical study in adult tube-fed patients with complex conditions, in 10 NHS centres around the UK showed that Nutrison Peptisorb Plus HEHP was well tolerated and accepted with excellent compliance:2

  • Energy and protein intake significantly increased
  • Significant reduction in diarrhoea severity
  • Compliance significantly increased
  • 86% of dietitians felt patients tolerated and/or exceeded tolerance expectations
