they last for just one hour!

Posted , 5 users are following.

The nurse from the helpline phoned me last night for a catch up. She wasn't as good a the first one I spoke to, but she answered a few questions. One thing I asked her, do the pills only last for an hour & that's why you take them with each meal? She said yes that is the case. I had previously posted that on the forum, but some others said, no they build up & you are always covered. I was right & they were wrong I'm afraid, they do only last for the one hour. Worth remembering!

good luck!

    sometimes i dont have anything happen after i eat,maybe ive not reached the 10g fat rule?majority of the time,within an hour i do go to the loo.also MAP are telling me different things!one nurse was quite rude and treated me as i was thick,as i am new to all of this,and another nurse said something says 10-15g fat per meal, the other says 10-12 try have no more than 30g fat in the whole day. but as its low fat foods you have to eat,im sometimes not reaching the 10-12g fat per day. does this matter??thanks

    somewhat confused Heidi!x
