Research arising from Glasgow Feeding clinic

In early research we found that tube weaning resulted in weight loss but no slowing of growth.

We have shown that tube fed children had similar appetite patterns (satiation) to healthy children. 

We found that stopping sip feeds did not result in weight loss and in some  children weight gain increased.

We have also described our underpinning philosophy, how the clinic operates and its cost effectiveness.
