Dysphagia sufferers, estimated at 8% of the population,1 often struggle to take in enough liquids, even developing a fear of swallowing. It's time to take hydration seriously.
Thick & Easy Clear is prescribed to modify the consistency of drinks, helping people with dysphagia to swallow safely. Thick & Easy Clear:
- Encourages fluid intake, therefore reducing the risk of dehydration
- Is a gum-based thickener
- Doesn't alter the natural appearance, taste or texture of drinks2
- Retains a consistent thickness over time
- Lessens the fear of swallowing
