Thincal uses and description

Sort by popularity
Thincal - Used for: Managing obesity in overweight adults. It may also be used to reduce the risk of weight regain after previous weight loss. It is used along with a reduced-calorie, low-fat diet.

Thincal is a gastrointestinal lipase inhibitor. It works by blocking the digestion of fats from the diet.

Pharmacology: Reversible lipase inhibitor for obesity management that acts by inhibiting absorption of dietary fats.

Indication: Rx

Obesity management, including weight loss and weight maintenance, when used in combination with a reduced-calorie diet; reduction of the risk for weight regain after prior weight loss.

OTC

Weight loss in overweight adults 18 yr of age and older along with a reduced-calorie and low-fat diet.

Thincal is a lipase inhibitor for obesity management that acts byinhibiting the absorption of dietary fats. At the recommendedtherapeutic dose of 120 mg three times a day, Thincal inhibitsdietary fat absorption by approximately 30%. It works by inhibiting pancreatic lipase, an enzyme that breaks down fat in the intestine. Without this enzyme, fat from the diet is excretedundigested and not absorbed by the body. Because some vitamins are fat soluble, the effect of Thincal is to reduce their bodyabsorption. Therefore the drug should only be taken in conjuction with fatty meals, and a multivitamin tablet containing these vitamins (D E K and beta-carotene) should be taken once a day, at least 2 hours before or after taking the drug. In the March 15, 2004 issue of Cancer Research, [1] Steven J. Kridel et al. state that Thincal may also inhibit growth of prostate cancer, and in theory may be useful in treating other cancers, by interfering with the metabolism of fats.

Thincal is used to treat obesity in people with a body mass index (BMI) more than 30. It can also be used to treat obesity in people with diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol and a BMI more than 27. Thincal works by preventing your body from absorbing the fat in the food you eat. Fat that is not absorbed is passed out from your body in the stools. Thincal is meant to be taken as part of a complete weight management programme that should include exercise, a healthy diet and other lifestyle changes.
