Welcome to the board, I'm also sorry i don't know the FTT testings that are done for a g-tube. We don't have one. We've done a ton of other testings but none for a gtube.
My daughter Savannah is 3 years old and is 26.7lbs. she just gained two lbs. What has worked for us is we put her on an apitite stimulant in December. We weighed her in Feb and she hadn't gained any weight but we just weighed her and she had gained the two lbs.
I hate having to turn to a medication for the weight gain, but we are taknig what we can get. Before we got on the pediasure (3 a day = 750 cals.) she was only eating about 350cals a day, so the pediasure brought us up to more cals a day but she still wasn't gaining any weight. We have no diagnosis as to why she is FTT, she just can't eat that much.
Anyways, we'd like to welcome you to the board, I know there are a few here that have done the tubes. We are just a little quite sometimes on the board.

Ask me about dōTERRA Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils!
