Lorenzo's Oil

Lorenzo's Oil is for the dietary management of Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) and Adrenomyeloneuropathy (AMN) in adults and children from 1 year. Usually given in conjunction with a low fat diet restricting hexacosanoic acid (C26:0), it may be taken on its own or mixed with permitted foods. Due to the restricted nature of the diet, it may be necessary to supplement the diet  with a source of essential fatty acids such as walnut oil.

Lorenzo's Oil is a blend of four parts Glycerol Trioleate (GTO) and one part Glycerol Trierucate (GTE) oils. It is a Food for Special Medical Purposes and must be used under medical supervision.
The quantity of Lorenzo's Oil and the dilution should be determined by a clinician or a dietitian only. Some treatment protocols suggestthat Lorenzo's Oil should provide 20% of the total calorie intake per day. The following instructions
should be followed carefully to ensure that Lorenzo's Oil remains in optimum condition.
  1. Shake bottle very well until white sedimentis evenly distributed through the bottle.
  2. Remove the daily dose and return bottle to refrigerator
  3. The daily dose should be keptin a sealed container in the dark e.g. a dark cupboard, atroom temperature and taken throughoutthe day as instructed by the clinician or dietitian. Shake well before use,to ensure minimal wastage of white sediment.
