Page: Carb+ Presurgery Clinical Nutrition Drink

Reduce post-op surgical stress and enhance recovery


Surgical stress in the presence of fasting worsens the catabolic state, causing insulin resistance and may delay recovery.


Complex carbohydrate-rich drinks given pre-operatively help reduce discomfort, nausea and vomiting which can allow for speedy recovery with fewer complications.
