Dear Nowin
There are many different meal supplements on the market (ask your chemist). There are many excellent liquid meal replacements available at your chemist (Ensure or Fresubin) which you can try. One of the representatives of Fresenius-Kabi may be able to advise which meal supplement is best (phone Magda on (011) 203-2000 or 083-603-2231) or phone Nestle Consumer Services at 086-009-6789 and ask them about their liquid supplements. It is Essential that you use the supplements IN ADDITION TO YOUR REGULAR MEALS and that you eat more at each meal to boost your energy intake.
Best regards
