Swallowing problems and diseases

Why Gloup?

In the past food was commonly used to help people with the intake of their medication. They had to, as there was no other solution. However, many foods have interactions with many medication. Because there are so many possible combinations, you will loose track on what can and cannot be done, which leads to unwanted and sometimes even dangerous interactions! For example the intake of Paracetamol with yoghurt: a shocking loss of 60% active ingredient! Or what to think of the combination of Orange juice with a  bèta blocker; a frightening loss of 80% active ingredient! Many studies have been done on interactions between food and meds, but to this day, this is an underexposed problem. Many interactions are present, but not studied.

Gloup is a simple solution that has no impact on the effectiveness of your medication, so the right dosage can be given. If the solution is so simple, why not use it?

Frequently Asked Questions
Can i use Gloup with liquid medication?

If you are not suffering from dysphagia, it would be possible. In case of no dysphagia the thickness of the product is not essential, as you can swallow thinner products safely. By adding a liquid, Gloup will become a bit thinner. Gloup will now mask the bad flavor of the medication. In case of dysphagia, using Gloup with liquid medication is not allowed.

Why should i avoid using food for the intake of my medication?
Does Gloup contain sugar?

There are different versions available. Gloup Original and Gloup Forte contain a small amount of sugar  (0,5 grams per intake).
