Study to Intervene with Nutrition for Gastroparesis

You are invited to participate in a research study to assess the efficacy of a plant based organic peptide formula without common allergens in adult tube-fed Gastroparesis patients.

We Want to Know...

This study aims to Investigate:

  • Whether transitioning to a plant-based tube feeding formulation affects tolerability and gastroparesis symptoms.
  • How changes in tube feed formulation impact inflammation.
  • Changes that occur in the fecal microbiota with transition to a plant-based tube feeding formulation.

You may qualify if you:

  • Are between 18-65 years of age.
  • Have an established diagnosis of gastroparesis and a J tube.
  • Have had no changes to gastroparesis medications in the last 3 months.

  • Attend 4 clinic visits over a 12-week period (60 minutes each).
  • Maintain dietary food records throughout the study.
  • Provide blood and stool samples, and complete questionnaires.
  • Maintain a diet with Kate Farms Formula for 12 weeks.
     

If you participate in the study, you will receive the following free of charge:
