The dosage recommendation is a single sachet consumed as a pre-meal drink before meals. As a food product, there is no potential for overdose – however the high levels of soluble fibre may lead to diarrhea if consumed in large amounts.
Taking other medicines
Tell your health care professional if you are taking any other medicines, including any that you buy without a prescription from a pharmacy, supermarket or health food shop. This will help them decide if using Omni- D® is appropriate for you. Omni - D® can be used in conjunction with medicines designed to treat type 2 diabetes. As a food product, there is little chance of interaction. However, it is important to take oral medicines 15 minutes before the pre-meal drink so the absorption of the drug is not changed.
Safe for everyday use (maximin of two serves per day).
Special events – where you will be testing your current medication or management of T2D – used under medical supervision.
