At some point in their lives, individuals may need to receive what is referred to as "enteral nutrition" or "tube feeding." Enteral nutrition is often used in people of all ages who have difficulty swallowing. It can also be needed as a result some types of surgeries that interfere with eating as well as a physical inability to eat. Enteral tube feeding (ETF) is used to ensure that patients maintain adequate food, liquids and nutritional supplements. ETF can be administered either with a "nasogastric" or a "nasoenteral" feeding tube, which is inserted through the nose directly into the stomach or the small intestine. It can also be used via a gastronomy or a jejunostomy tube. These options are placed directly through the patient's skin, into the stomach or the small intestine.

Although approximately 25 percent of those who receive ETF in hospitals are children and newborns, it is also performed in hospitals, long-term care facilities and at home. In fact, thousands of patients receive this therapy at home. Total Diabetes Supply has the enteral nutrition supplies and enteral nutrition products you need at prices that won't break the bank.
