If an anorexic refuses to eat or drink a supplemental drink (i.e. Ensure) and is fed by a feeding tube in a treatment center or during a 5150 involuntary psychiatric hold, how many calories does he/she receive daily from the feeding tube?

I hope anorexics don't get very many calories from a feeding tube daily.

Thank you.

@Green Witch,
Yup . . . actually was bein' nice . . . if you read that as "I hear the lord," then we know we've got a nut bar on the line. The boy's hearin' voices.

@ihearthelord,
Anorexic saints prefer to be tube fed thistle seed oil.

Apparently, Chris here didn't care for the responses he (?) got. He started another thread.

@Setanta,
Both threads popped up at the same time. Like a lot of newbies who think they did something wrong if they can't immediately see their post and try again.

I prefer to treat a post like this seriously. Having worked with anorexic girls, this poster might be trying to figure out a way to beat the system and burn off any calories forced into her body. She (I'm betting it's a female) is using some technical language. Granted, she could also be studying for some type of nursing test and is trying to grab a few answers here.

That's a good point, but the "I hear the lord" BS is disturbing. If the author is the one in a temporary commitment and is trying to avoid the feeding tube, with a name like that, you do have to wonder what her (?) motivation is.

By the way, 5150 as a name for a temporary commitment places the action in California, for what that's worth, if anything.

@Setanta,
I don't think the poster is coming back. She either passed out from hunger, guessed at the test answer or was raptured.

@ihearthelord,
You know, this website was not created for non answers! It was made to get answers not wicked remarks so I will go ahead and give one.

I am taking a guess here, the calories are determined depending on how much weight they need to gain. In some cases, they are started off slowly, 1000 calories a day. Ideally, a healthy person requires 1600-2000 per day.

Lastly,
Psalms 10:
In pride, the wicked holy pursue the afflicted;
Let them be caught in the plots which they have devised.
For the wicked boasts of his heart's desires, And the greedy man
curses and spurns the Lord
