Hello Forum mates:
While waiting for my Entyvio (switched from Remicade) to kick in (I am week 7, finished the 0-2-6 week doses last Monday), my diarrhea and bowel distress continues.
Due to weight loss, lack of appetite and poor absorption, my GI wants me to start TPN. However, I wanted to try a blended approach to get enough calories and protein - solid food plus Peptamen and Peptamen Jr.
- Has anyone tried this before? What success have you had?
- Can Peptamen regular or Jr aggravate diarrhea symptoms?
- Other insights?
Thanks for your replies and support ... this is really tough to deal with!
