Jeff Ensminger from the Infusion Division of Walgreens was our speaker today.  Jeff is presently working as an infusionist providing in-home care.  As he described it, he is part of a nutrition support team working with and for patients receiving chemo and radiation therapy involving the mouth, neck and throat.


With these forms of treatment looming on the horizon, Jeff promotes eating nearly anything and everything, to bulk up as substantial weight loss is expected once treatment gets under way.  Stress causes people to burn many more calories.  Diagnosis and treatment raises everyone’s stress level.  Enhanced nutritional capacity is an absolute must.


Jeff spent a substantial amount of time explaining the use of a peg tube to assist in the nutrition process.  The peg tube is a tube inserted into the stomach directly to and in providing nutrition that cannot otherwise be received.  Once in place vitamin enriched liquid nutrition packs can be directly introduced into the stomach to provide nutrition to those who might otherwise go without.  Amazing treatment assistance!  Jeff vouches for its success.  Thanks Jeff!
