We get many unique questions on our My MIC-KEY* Facebook Page every day. From time-to-time, we’ll feature real questions asked by some of you and share the answers in an effort to help us all learn from each other.
This month, we’re featuring a question about taking fish oil, asked by Tracy O.
Question: Is it okay to give fish oil via the MIC-KEY* Feeding Tube?
Answer: Great question, Tracy! Generally speaking, yes. It is fine. There is no contraindication for fish oil. The tube is for enteral nutrition so any food product is acceptable (as long as it is configured for delivery via feeding tube).
That said, we always recommend consulting your healthcare provider or nutritionist before making changes to your diet.
