Nutrition support in motor neurone disease4 Credits
In this video, Jacqui Griffiths, MND Dietitian from Leeds MND Care Centre discusses the management of a patient with Motor Neurone Disease, who developed reflux and regurgitation on commencing gastrostomy bolus feeding. Despite the use of various enteral and oral feeds, his symptoms persisted, and he lost approximately 8% of his body weight in 9 months. After commencing Peptamen® AF, a 100% whey peptide formula with 50% of fat from MCT, his symptoms resolved and his weight stabilised. He continues to tolerate enteral feeding well after 8 months on his new feed and reports his quality of life has improved.
