Nutrison Peptisorb Plus HEHP Tube Feed

A peptide-based tube feed for patients with GI intolerance symptoms

A state of nutrition in which a deficiency of energy, protein, and other nutrients casues adverse effects on the body's size, composition and function resulting in poorer clinical outcomes.1

Malnutrition risk is common across many patient groups, with a particularly high prevalence (up to 45%) in patients with gastrointestinal (GI) orders2,3

Patients with GI disorders can present with several symptoms, such as diarrhoea, bloating, abdominal pain, and vomiting4.

If symptoms are improperly managed this may lead to:

  • Reduced nutritional intake
  • Increased nutritional losses
  • Increased malnutrition risk

Nutritional support is vital for patients with GI disorders, as emphasised in several ESPEN guidelines.5,6

Tolerance to tube feeds containing whole proteins and fats is often poor in patients with GI disorders.4,7

In patients with GI disorders, when absorption and digestion of nutrients is impaired, peptide-based feeds have been shown to improve tolerance.4,7

Designed to improve GI tolerance and increase nutritional intake in patients with impaired GI function.7

Study Outline

Patient Population Demographics

Trial Results

Nutrison Peptisorb Plus HEHP is suitable for patients with impaired GI function and can improve GI tolerance.

Nutrison Peptisorb Plus HEHP is well tolerated and accepted with excellent compliance:

  • No change in anthropometry
  • 86% of dietitians felt patients tolerated and/or exceeded tolerance expectation.
*Intake from Nutrison Peptisorb Plus HEHP, other tube feeds, food, drinks, and oral nutritional supplements.

Nutrison Peptisorb Plus HEHP significantly reduced the severity of diarrhoea7
