Seeking 'aware' Gastroenterologist: El Paso, Tx

Recommended Posts

my parents are finally willing to try avoiding gluten and dairy after my poor father just this weekend had his stomach perforated while his doctor was trying to 'stretch' his esophagus due to hiatal hernia. he will be intravenously fed in the hospital now for quite some time but i need to jump on their new willingness to consider food intolerances as causing many of his inflammatory, phlegm, and itching problems. please, advise me. i am afraid he will get much worse without altering his diet, especially during the healing phase. is there such thing as gluten and casein free intravenous food? thanks for 'listening'.

Get the name and the maker from the hospital and call the company. That is the best way to know for sure. Sorry to hear this happened to him and I hope he recovers soon.
