Is it safe to drink ensure 3 or more a day?
I have had alot of stomach problems and anxiety. I have lost 16 pounds in about a month. I am trying to get in calories to not lose any more weight. I still can not eat much. Are the ensure drinks safe to drink at 3 or more a day. Is there a better nutrision drink?      Thank you...

It is ok to drink 3 Ensures a day to stop losing weight, however, you should find out why you have issues with your stomach and need to eat regular food. It is good you are going to a Gastroenterologist. If you have esophageal spasms, then you do not have to worry about Celiac disease (gluten / wheat allergy) which occurs only in the small intestine. Numerous gastric issues are anxiety provoked and relaxation methods have helped. Hope this helped you and best of luck.

Have you gone to a gastroenterologist? You may have Celiac Sprue or Gluten Intolerance. Your symptoms are familiar to this disease. It is a genetic food allergy.
