In this video by the IWKHealthcare Gastroenterology Team shared in July 2013, children and teenagers with Crohn’s disease reveal how tube feeding helped transform their lives.
The kids, all participants at Camp Guts and Glory, describe life with the feeding tube from the awkward first few days at school to how hardly anyone notices anymore. They also tell why they opted for tube feeding over steroid treatment.
The film includes how-to details about inserting and cleaning the tube.
