I'm not sure what milk has to do with staying hydrated and taking vitamins, but all of us go through times where we can barely get down any food. That's why we each have to figure out what our bodies will accept with the help of a doctor and/or nutritionist. If all food becomes problematic, then the doctor needs to try other treatments. For instance the GP diet failed for me, as did Domperidone. I'm now on TPN to supplement the few hundred calories I get each day, but due to a continuing and worsening allergic reaction and the fact that it seems my Ehlers Danlos and suspected Dysautonomia are causing my GP, my GI doctor is figuring I'll probably end up on enteral feeding through a nasaljejunostomy tube or jejunostomy tube. He also created the gastric pacemaker, so if he feels that I'm a candidate that's another treatment I could end up on. If everything fails, it's back to TPN which is basically the last-ditch effort to keep someone alive when they can't take any nutrition.
