Sample text

At the prescription dose of 120 mg, three times a day with meals, orlistat blocks the absorption of approximately 30% of dietary fat [129]. Fat-soluble vitamins and nutrients will also have a decreased absorption as they will pass with the undigested dietary fat. The noncaloric fat replacement olestra (brand name Olean) reduces fat-soluble vitamins by 10% when consumed in the intended amounts [130]. Since an over-the-counter formulation of orlistat is now widely available, it is important to ask patients if they are using orlistat (Alli) and might be at risk for fat-soluble nutrient deficiency.

Another acceptable approach is to dose supplemental vitamin D to normalize blood levels. • Educate patients to limit processed carbohydrates, consume whole grains, and avoid ironfortified grains if possible. • Discourage high-fat diets and suggest patients limit their intake of fried foods and vegetable oils. Recommend patients choose lean red meats, poultry, and fish when eating meat. Encourage patients to cook with monounsaturated oils like olive oil. REFERENCES 1. , Harris, T. , et al. 2011.

One potentially contradictory study published in 2007 found that 6 mg of lutein supplementation in a group of 15 patients did not significantly improve contrast sensitivity in a group of AMD patients during a nine-month trial [101]. However, the small size of the study and low relative dose of lutein create more questions about the necessary study size, lutein dosage, and time to show benefit in supplement trials and AMD. The AREDS 2 trial will help clarify the appropriate supplement therapy because it is a very large, long-term (six-year) study.
