During times of illness those with MSUD require an emergency regimen or emergency feed, as they are more commonly known. For them to work effectively, they must be made up accurately. Your dietitian will recommend the most appropriate product(s) and give you specific guidelines to follow when preparing and administering the emergency feeds. It is important that these instructions are followed carefully.
