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.

Thank you, I see the gastroenterologist June 13. 7 years ago had the same problems.I have esophageal spasms.That along with the anxiety has took away my appetite. I was worried about drinking too many Ensure drinks.  Thank You........
