Digestive Enzymes for g-tubers


Because g-tube fed people do not activate saliva in the ingestion process, they miss out on the beginning of the enzyme dominoes.  Amylase.  It’s in saliva when we start eating.  

I’ve been giving Little Miss digestive enzymes off and on for some time.  I notice it  makes her poops not smell so much. Nice side effect.  It seems to also help with reflux. 

I’m doing more research. More to come!
