Ensure is it safe?

Harrodsburg, KY

#1 Mar 24, 2013
I have a severe stomach problem where I can no longer eat solid foods.I have been told that drinking just Ensure is unsafe and dangerous.
Just curious if anyone knows if this is true and also do they have any advice for someone like me? I am 38 years old and have been battling this problem for years. About three weeks ago I was so bad with the flu that I ended up again at the ER due to dehydration from vomiting. Since then the only thing that I have been able to tolerate is Ensure. I have been on Ensure daily since the last episode of vomiting. I have no insurance and have a lot of medical issues. Does anyone have any advice about this situation? Thanks in advance for your help!

see a doctor. i have no insurance either. there are organizations of volunteer doctors, etc. you don't pay monthly. you only pay a small amount per visit. i see my doctor every 4 month. i pay only $5 per visit and i get a prescription for my diabetes. they give me a date and time when to come back next time. and my doctor is always there on that day and time.

just google "organizations of volunteer doctors". or volunteer doctors in your area.
