CPEU Course Description
Orlistat is a gastrointestinal lipase inhibitor and thus reduces the extent of fat absorption from the diet. This CPEU course evaluates if supplementation with flaxseed fibers and/or dairy calcium will alleviate the gastrointestinal symptoms related to orlistat treatment. Furthermore, the effects of dietary supplementation in conjunction with orlistat on fecal parameters, dietary intake, anthropometry, cardiometabolic risk markers, and adverse events were evaluated.
Brooke H. Dekofsky, MPH, RD, CLE, CDE was involved in the creation of this course.
