When you are on dialysis, your protein and calorie needs are higher. In fact, dialysis patients need about 50% more protein than normal. Even if you follow your dialysis diet very carefully, you may still have a hard time getting vital nutrition through food and dietary supplements alone.
Two forms of added nutrition, given during dialysis, can provide significant amounts of needed protein without having to drink or eat more:
Intradialytic Parenteral Nutrition (IDPN): IV nutrition given during dialysis at the clinic.
Intraperitoneal Nutrition (IPN): Nutrition added during dialysis at home.
Given as added nutritional therapy during dialysis, Proplete® provides your body with protein, a minimal amount of dextrose (a type of carbohydrate), and, for some patients, it may also contain lipids (a type of fat) for additional calories.
