We Know What You’re Made Of

Are your patients drinking enough? We all know that water is essential for life. Unfortunately, not everyone finds it easy to drink enough to stay hydrated.

TEClearDysphagia 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
