The liver, pancreas and gallbladder have an irreplaceable role in the digestion and absorption of nutrients in the diet. Problems with them, whether acute or chronic, have a significant impact on the above functions of the digestive tract (digestion and absorption). The most common dietary component we have to pay attention to with different diets and illnesses of these organs is fats. That is why doctors often recommend a reduced fat diet for various lengths of time. If a patient is experiencing digestion or absorption problems due to diseases of these organs, and has to stick to a low-fat diet, they can often start to lose weight. A special sip feed type of nutrition was developed for these patients’ requirements with basic nutrients but no fat, nutrego FRUTY.
In the words of a nutritional specialist:
Long-term restriction of fat intake to the amount in grams per day as recommended by a doctor is not easy, while having enough of the other components (protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals). Fats are important in our diet, especially “healthy fats”, and have a high energy value. Patients with pancreas, liver and gallbladder diseases often lose weight and are at risk of malnutrition. It is therefore a good idea to supplement the regular diet of these patients with food containing an increased amount of energy and protein but reduced fat. Nutrego FRUTY is the optimum variant with fruit flavours (juice), suiting the needs of these patients. It does not contain fat and has enough protein (one 330 ml bottle has 495 kcal and almost 15 grams of protein). It is also suitable as an ideal dietary supplement in these patients who have or are at risk of malnutrition.
