CeraLyte FAQ Part V


by Mike Nelson September 26, 2016

Question

What recommendations do you have for accidental ingestions/exposures?

Answer

It is nearly impossible to overdose on CeraLyte. Children or adults with normal cardiovascular systems and kidneys will dispose of any excess with no side effects except increased urine output and some edema (swelling) if a large amount is taken (2 - 4 liters) within a short period of time, such as one to two hours. If someone has heart failure or kidney failure, then they should consult their physician who may prescribe a diuretic and measure blood potassium levels.

For persons who must restrict their intake of sodium, there is a chance that they may absorb too much salt if they drink large amounts of CeraLyte. The symptoms of too much sodium being absorbed would typically include swelling of feet, eyelids and face. 

Question

Can CeraLyte be administered to pregnant women?

Answer

CeraLyte is classified as a medical food by the Food and Drug Administration and is labeled for use under medical supervision. Clinicians considering recommending CeraLyte for pregnant women should do so after careful evaluation of the ingredients of CeraLyte.

Question

What liquids can the powder be mixed with? Can CeraLyte be mixed with something other than water? Do not like flavor. What other flavors does it come in?

Answer

It is best to dissolve the CeraLyte powder in water. Other fluids that are low in sodium (unsalted soup, herbal teas, and diet powder drinks such as Crystal Light) can also be used. Diet soft drinks without caffeine such as diet ginger ale or diet lemon lime sodas can also be used but CeraLyte should be added and mixed slowly due to excessive “fizzing”. Liquids such as sugar sweetened soft drinks, coffee, fruit drinks and sugar or honey sweetened tea should NOT be used. Some of these liquids can cause increased fluid loss or osmotic diarrhea.
