So this is similar to my last post about feeding tubes.
I have weight issues because of cf. My body does not produce a lot of enzymes which leads to indigestion and bowel issues. I have to take man made enzymes before I eat so I can digest the food properly. I still get some stomach issues, but it helps a lot.
I am underweight and in the last year have not gained any weight. I’ve been up and down, but the last time I was at the doctors I weighed the same as I did last July, so I’ve been considering a gtube.
This is a common problem in people with cf and consists the rest of their lives. A lot of people end up getting feeding tubes to help them gain weight.
