Mealworms and gutloading

Hi all, I'm new to this forum. We ordered a leopard gecko online and have now had her for one week. In that time, we have have done basic cage maintenance and fed one time. We haven't handled her yet. We decided on mealworms for her diet since that is what she ate before she came to us. My question is, can I use gutload for crickets with my mealworms or do I need something specific for mealworms?

I have my eye on Repashy Superload, but have to order it online instead of picking it up from a local business.

I simply gutload with raw oatmeal or oat flour, carrots, and whatever veggies or greens I have in the house.

Thanks for the responses. I'm going to go with oatmeal and carrots for now and pick up cricket food if we are near a town when I can get it. I started a mealworm "farm" a few days ago so they are all fat and happy living in oatmeal and have access to carrots. I was totally surprised by the number of you tube videos on the subject of mealworm farming!
