Suggested Use:

Food for Special Medical Purposes

Intake to be determined by the clinician or dietitian and is dependent on the age, body weight and medical condition of the patient.

Preparation Guidelines For bottle-fed infants:

The standard dilution of 15% is made by adding 1 level scoop (included in tin) of Lipistart (approx 5g) to 30ml of water (approx 1 fluid oz.).

  1. Wash hands well.
  2. Sterilise feeding equipment according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  3. Boil fresh water and leave to cool for no more than 30 minutes to ensure it remains at a temperature of at least 70ºC. Do not use artificially softened water or repeatedly boiled water.
  4. Measure out the required amount of water into the bottle.
  5. Using the scoop provided, add the prescribed number of scoops of Lipistart to the water, levelling each scoop off with the back of a clean dry knife. Do not press the powder into the scoop.
  6. Place the sterilised teat and cap on the bottle and shake well until all the powder has dissolved.
  7. Cool to drinking temperature (approx. 37ºC). Always test the temperature before feeding by shaking a few drops onto the inside of your wrist – the feed should feel warm but not hot. Any formula remaining in the bottle after 1 hour must be discarded. Do not reheat Lipistart once feeding has started.

Other dilutions, tube-feeding and feeding older children: To be determined by the clinician or dietitian. Lipistart is typically mixed with water as per clinicians/dietitians' instructions. Any feed prepared in advance must be refrigerated and used within 24 hours.

Important feeding information: Do not heat Lipistart in a microwave as uneven heating may occur and could cause scalding. Do not boil Lipistart. Some foam may appear on mixing which will settle during cooling. Infants must be supervised at all times when feeding. Regular teeth cleaning is recommended.

Storage

Unopened: Store in a cool dry place. Once opened: Use within 3 weeks. Always replace container lid after use. Packaged in a protective atmosphere.

Important notice

Lipistart must be used under medical supervision. Suitable as a sole source of nutrition from birth to 1 year of age. Lipistart is suitable from birth to 10 years of age. Can be used as a supplementary feed from 1 to 10 years of age. Not suitable for people with medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency (MCADD). Monitoring of essential fatty acid status and supplementation when required, is recommended when using Lipistart long term. For enteral use only.
