ABSTRACT

A highly obese female patient (body mass index=30.8 kg/m2) participated in a 10-day Gamrosumodified fasting therapy with soluble dietary fiber supplementation to enhance lipid metabolism. Gamrosu is a modified fasting therapy beverage which is made from medical herbs andcarbohydrates (431 kcal/d). Before and after fasting, we evaluated the efficacy of therapy bymeasuring the changes of body composition and blood chemistry. After the modified fastingtherapy, −6.1% of body weight and –5.6% of body fat mass were decreased. With regard to bloodchemistry, all the plasma lipid levels were lowered. −37.4% of total cholesterol, −39.7% of lowdensity lipoprotein cholesterol, −39.0% of triglyceride and –27% of high density lipoprotein (HDL)cholesterol were reduced. Further studies are needed to alleviate the reduction of HDLcholesterolto apply the Gamrosu modified fasting to hyperlipidemia.
