During the Diet Tube treatment it is necessary to follow very closely the requirements given by our doctors.

Proteic food is prepared according to precise doses and methods. The quantity prepared has to last for 24 hours. Dissolve the nutritional product (powder), prescribed by the doctor of our Diet Tube in 2 liters of drinking water.

The container with water will be shaken in order to obtain a liquid without any lumps. The protocol also provides the prescription of a drug to protect the stomach, a supplement of minerals, a multivitamin and a laxative.

Any therapies already in place (for heart disease, hypertension, endocrine disorders, etc.) should generally be continued.

If during the Diet Tube treatment you have any problems or questions, the doctors of our centers are available 24 hours per day.

During therapy, it is necessary to check daily:

1- Weight: it is important that you weigh yourself every morning.
2- Presence of ketone bodies: each morning you have to check the presence of ketones in the urine with a special stick ( Keturah test) ensuring that the test is positive. Otherwise you’ll have to contact our doctors.
3- Hunger sensation
4- Number of evacuations, spontaneous or resulting from the intake purge

It is very important that you do not eat any food during Diet Tube treatment. Do not eat any candies or chewing gum. The hunger sensation is completely absent, but might be provoked by food ingestion. Just a piece of candy or a soda drink stops the process of ketogenesis and thus weight loss.

You can freely drink mineral water, tea, coffee this hat to be absolutely sugar free.

Check that tube is in place.

Please remember to recharge the battery of the pump during the night or as needed.

The pump can be detached from the tube for a maximum of 15 minutes at a time (for 4 times a day and a total of 2 hours in 24 hours ). Avoid sitting for a prolonged period of time. We advice moderate physical activity during the Diet Tube treatment. 

Within two days of treatment you start to feel the loss of hunger sensation.

This is due to the accumulation of ketone bodies that are produced by the consumption of fat. The unique contribution of high quality proteins (specifically essential amino acids) and the lack of carbohydrate intake activates the mechanism of lipolysis that leads to weight loss. During treatment there is selective lipolysis which decreases the fat mass and mantains the lean body mass (muscle).
