If you've had surgery on your esophageal or stomach which has resulted in partial or total removal, you can still benefit from having Huel Instant Meals, Powder and Ready-to-drink. Follow the guidance you've been given as you would for other foods. One symptom you should have been made aware of from medical staff is dumping syndrome. The ingredients in Huel are low-GI and are ideal to reduce the risk of dumping syndrome. However, to be cautious, we recommend you keep your servings smaller and spread throughout the day.
Obviously this also depends on your requirements and if you're consuming Huel for 100% of your nutrition. If you’re having 100% Huel, we suggest you work up to this level over 1-2 weeks rather than going straight to a 100% intake.
Some gastrointestinal surgery can result in reduced absorption and increased requirements for certain nutrients, so we recommend you discuss Huel with your clinical staff before making it a regular part of your diet.
