The Nepro Carb Steady Nutrition Drink is a therapeutic supplement that is dense in calories. People with chronic kidney diseases who rely on dialysis often find it hard to meet their recommended amount of calories in a day. This drink is the perfect solution to provide those required amount of nutrients and calories. The tetra pack of the drink can be sued for oral feeding whereas the ready-to-hang bottle is ideal for enteral feeding.
The Nepro Shake for Dialysis Patients contains Carb Steady, a unique blend of carbohydrates that include slow digesting carbohydrates for easier absorption. This unique blend exclusive to Abbott Nutrition Drinks also helps reduce blood glucose response. During dialysis, patients lose a lot of protein which is important for quicker wound healing and the repair of lean body tissue. As a rich source of protein, the drink helps overcome this issue by providing the recommended amount of protein to the user. The nutritional supplement also consists of very low amount of phosphorus, potassium, and sodium to reduce the strain on the kidneys. A good amount of fibers and prebiotics in the drink also facilitate better bowel function.
The calorically dense formula with over one and three quarters of calories in each milliliter of serving is suitable for people following the halal, kosher, gluten-free, and lactose intolerant diets. However, it is not recommended for people with galactosemia or to be used with an IV drip. The Nepro Shake can be sued as a sole source of nutrition or as a supplement with regular diets.
