GMS approved

Not suitable for use in children under eight years old.
Must only be used under strict medical supervision on the advice of a secondary care physician and/or dietitian with experience of the ketogenic diet. For enteral use only. To ensure the high fat feed is tolerated when first introducing a ketogenic diet, a less concentrated feed or lower feed volume may need to be provided initially. Care should be taken to ensure adequate free fluids are still provided. Patients should be monitored closely for hypoglycaemia, hyperlipidaemia, adequate growth and renal calculi.
The dosage should be determined by a clinician or dietitian only, and is dependent on age, body weight and medical condition of the patients.
Shake product vigorously for at least 5 seconds before use. The high fat nature of KetoCal 2.5:1 LQ can result in some natural creaming and thorough shaking of KetoCal 2.5:1 LQ is essential to mix the product. For oral feeding, the product is best served chilled and consumed immediately. For tube feeding, it is recommended the tube is flushed with lukewarm water (approximately 37°C) between each feed.
