    Hi Ruth. Thank you for your comment. We spoke with a couple of our registered dietitians, and they answered that whether it is urine and feces in your j-tube, or mucus that looks like urine and feces, you should contact your doctor and ask about the issue. We hope you have done so or will be able to reach them soon. Best of luck. -Aimee, Shield HealthCare

    Hi Aimee
    I help a care giver when she need help, I am Also a care giver, but when she feed her true the g-tube I notice that she do it too fast and and the lady get too mush gas and burp a lot and she complain about it. When I feed her I usually do it slow and take extra caution about it and the lady don’t get any complain. Aimee is this good or bad doing it to slow. Thank you I did love your presentation

    Hi Jeannette.

    Thank you for your comment. We checked in with one of our RDs, Cassandra. She says, “If signs of intolerance (i.e. pain, nausea, vomiting, constipation and/or abdominal distention) are not noted during feeding, continue feeding regimen as instructed by MD and RD.” We hope this helps and wish the best of health to you and those you care for. Thank you for all you do!

    Best wishes.
    Sarah, Shield HealthCare
