The Nutren comes in a higher calorie form...Bill was prescribed the 2.0 with Fiber which I think, was 375 calories per can. You might try to call your insurance carrier or the home health group that supplies the supplement (and bills your ins co.) and see if they will approve the higher content can so you don't have to pour as many into your PEG each day. (6 vs 9)

I had good luck with the HH supplier meeting our needs...they never billed me and were very ready to get what we needed and deal with our insurance carrier (Aetna.) Anytime I needed supplies, they were delivered or mailed to our house. One less battle to fight during our war last summer. Lovely!
