GATTEX Patient Stories

Learn about how some people were able to achieve less time on parenteral support (PS) with GATTEX (teduglutide).

Kat, a GATTEX patient

Kat’s story is about reducing PS volume

With the help of GATTEX, my doctor was able to cut my weekly PS. I’m now infusing fewer liters of PS a week.

-Kat, Gattex patient

Volume

GATTEX reduced the weekly volume of PS.
 

Jodi, caring for a GATTEX patient

Jodi's story is about achieving time off PS

Less days of PS means a kid who gets up to stay up late with his friends and just enjoy being a kid.

-Jodi, caring for a Gattex patient

Time

People treated with GATTEX achieved more time off of PS.

Betsy, a GATTEX Patient

Betsy’s story is about achieving freedom from PS

Over time with GATTEX, my doctors started slowly reducing my PS. A year later, my PS had been stopped altogether.

-Betsy, Gattex patient

Freedom

Over time, some people achieved complete freedom from PS with GATTEX.

In a 6-month study, 27 out of 43 adults treated with GATTEX reduced weekly PS volume by 20% or more vs 13 out of 43 on placebo, and 21 out of 39 achieved at least 1 day off PS per week vs 9 out of 39 on placebo. After 30 months of treatment, 10 out of 30 adults no longer needed PS. In a 6-month study, 18 out of 26 children treated with GATTEX reduced weekly PS volume by 20% or more, 10 out of 26 achieved a reduction of at least 1 day off PS per week, and 3 out of 26 no longer needed PS.

Speak to an SBS Ambassador

Through SBS Connect, you can speak with someone who knows what it’s like to live with SBS—and is ready to share their personal story.*

SBS Patient Ambassadors are adults with short bowel syndrome who know what it’s like to be dependent on parenteral support (PS) and who have experience taking GATTEX. Through SBS Connect, talk one on one with a Patient Ambassador as they share their experiences of living with SBS and journey from diagnosis to treatment.

Always remember that individual experiences and results will vary. The SBS Connect Program is not intended for the purpose of disease diagnosis.
