Q: Glycerine to prevent neonatal feed intolerance?

18 Jan, 10 | by Bob Phillips

Dog without constipationNow, I am sadly passionate about constipation and the need to treat it effectively. Some would say this obsession is a bit too much to be healthy. But even I would only go so far as to say that effective evacuation only makes you feel better, rather than make a huge difference to whether you put weight on or not. But perhaps I am not going far enough

as Dr Shah in Canada is undertaking an Archimedes reveiw to see if there is a really impressive benefit for glyerine in neonates by way of helping them feel or preventing jaundice.

Anyone currently using this approach?
