If you suffer from a chronic illness, it is important to discuss your diet and any supplements you are thinking of using with your healthcare practitioner. Many people with chronic illnesses use LIFEGAIN® to assist with providing their bodies with the additional nutrients needed to manage their illnesses, however, everyone’s nutritional needs differ depending on what chronic illness you are managing.  If you are managing a serious chronic illness like diabetes for example, where nutritional therapy plays a critical role, it is essential to discuss your nutrition with your healthcare practitioner.

LIFEGAIN® can be used in instances where individuals are not able to eat to get sufficient nutrition however, it is important to remember than LIFEGAIN® is a nutritional supplement and not a meal replacement.

A meal replacement is a balanced meal with the correct ratio of protein, carbohydrates, and fats so you can substitute a meal or part of a meal, whereas LIFEGAIN® – whilst it contains high levels of nutrients- does not contain all the nutrients in the correct ratio to be equivalent to a meal replacement.

Yes, you can use LIFEGAIN® to gain weight. Loss of lean body mass is common during bouts of illness, especially if you have been hospitalised.  You may struggle to eat which can result in significant weight loss. Taking Lifegain 2 – 3 times daily in between meals increases the likelihood of gaining weight.

If you are experiencing more than the normal weight loss and it is becoming a concern to you, we recommended that you consult a healthcare practitioner for advice and assistance.

Remember that with any products containing macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates, and fats) which add kilojoules to your diet, they need to be included as part of a balanced diet. It is important to understand the daily recommended amounts of nutrients that your body needs.

If you are watching your weight it will be important not to exceed daily recommended nutrient levels.  Weight management involves ensuring that your body gets all the nutrients in the right amounts by following a balanced diet.

A dietician, clinic sister or your pharmacist or doctor can provide you with advice based on the daily required amounts of macronutrients and micronutrients that you require in your diet to manage your weight.

In terms of levels of nutrients remember that LIFEGAIN® is high in protein and low in carbohydrates.

Lifegain is not indicated as a weight loss supplement, however, when used in conjunction with a kilojoule controlled eating plan, Lifegain may be taken as a meal replacement to assist in maintaining a healthy weight (which may lead to weight loss).
