What is a good food supplement, not containing milk products, for weight gain?
Mom is 80 years old, has diabetes and is recently out of hospital after intestinal surgery for bleeding. Actually had two hospital visits. She needed units of blood, fluids for dehydration, potassium, etc. She ended up with a severe case of c-diff. She was able to go home with two weeks of antibiotics (Vancomyacin and Flagel) very expensive! However, she has lost approximately 10 pounds in three weeks. Seems she has to learn to eat again. She was always a good eater and enjoys eating. She did have a fever and diarrhea (said it was only one day) not so sure however - last thing she wants is to go back into the hospital especially at Christmas time! She cannot tolerate milk. Any suggestions on food supplements to help her gain weight? We would appreciate your input. Merry Christmas to all. Holly and family.
