  • Access to new publications on FPIES (Food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome)

    As an educational service to healthcare professionals and FPIES families, Nutricia is proud to sponsor open access to 9 FPIES articles published in the June, 2014 edition of Current Opinion in Allergy and Clinical Immunology. The articles, written by leading experts, summarize what is currently known about the condition, provide an overview of diagnosis, medical and nutrition management as well as where the knowledge gaps are.

    • FPIES is a non IgE-mediated gastrointestinal food hypersensitivity to one or more specific foods. It is characterized by profuse vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy and failure to thrive and primarily affects infants and toddlers. There is a general lack of awareness about FPIES, which has lead to this condition being frequently misdiagnosed. Patients will commonly experience invasive and extensive evaluation prior to finally being diagnosed.

  • Duocal Tools

    This tool helps to determine an amount of Duocal to add to any enteral formula. It offers both an interactive calculator and two printable concentration charts to help in adding calories to enteral formulas with Duocal. It also offers an interactive calculator that can generate a combination of US household measures that provide an approximate gram weight of Duocal when a scale is not available and the provided scoop is not convenient.

  • Prescriber's Guide to Duocal

    A Prescriber's Guide to Duocal, a medical food providing calories in form of fat and carbohydrate. This resource outlines guidelines on how to use and how much to prescribe for your patients.
