General Information

Formerly Modifast

Optifast VLCD Sachets - Chocolate
21x 40gm

Presentation: Packs of twenty one sachets (one
week supply) of powder formula in chocolate

Total food replacement for the overweight.
Optifast?? VLCD is intended for use as part of the
management of the moderately to severely
overweight, even when there is associated
secondary pathology e.g. non-insulin-dependent
diabetes, hypertension, osteoarthritis,
hypothyroidism corrected by replacement therapy,
gynaecological disorders, hyperlipidaemia or where
obesity is an impediment to surgery.

At the commencement of treatment, patients should
be checked for normal renal and hepatic function
and thereafter regular checks for weight, blood
pressure and urinalysis.
Contraindications: Acute cerebrovascular or cardiovascular disease, renal disease, hepatic disease, juvenile onset diabetes, porphyria or overt psychosis.

Use in pregnancy. Contraindicated. Use in lactation. Contraindicated. Use in children. Modified fasting is not recommended for treatment of childhood weight problems. Selenium-containing products are not suitable for use by children under the age of 15 years.

Precautions: Patients with recent myocardial infarction should be referred to a cardiologist to determine suitability for modified fasting. Patients should be screened for gall bladder disorders prior to commencement of modified fasting using Optifast VLCD.

Patients receiving medication for diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidaemia or those on lithium therapy may require a reduction in dose or withdrawal of treatment whilst undergoing modified fasting. Such patients should be monitored carefully in the first weeks of a Optifast VLCD program.

Patients with a history of hepatic or renal disease should also be monitored carefully. Patients on lithium therapy require more frequent monitoring of blood lithium levels. Alcohol should not be consumed when using Optifast VLCD.
