In the hospital we were given prescriptions for products like Caloreen and Fantomalt that we should use when our 2 year old daughter with MCAD deficiency won’t eat or vomits. These are to be mixed with water.

Unfortunately she doesn’t want to drink this (she drinks very little even when not sick).

I read that in America there are products like InstaGlucose and GlucoBurst. This is a gel that contains high levels of glucose. With such a gel it should be OK to get small amounts of this in her mouth to give her the necessary glucose.

In Belgium I haven’t been able to find a similar product. Gels for sports are less convenient because they usually also contain cafeine, vitamins and slow sugars.

Does anyone know of such a product available in Belgium or around?

What do you do in case of emergency? All tips are welcome!
