Nepro® HP - Vanilla

Nepro® HP

Nepro HP is a 1.8kcal/ml, energy dense1,2, oral nutritional supplement and tube feed, for use as a sole source of nutrition or as a nutritional supplement for patients with:

  • Chronic or acute kidney disease who are on haemodialysis or continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD)
  • Cirrhosis
  • Those with other conditions requiring a high-energy, low electrolyte, low volume enteral feed

In a study of NEPRO as supplemental nutrition, patients on dialysis had1:

  • Increased serum albumin
  • Increased serum prealbumin
  • Improved nutritional status (as signed by SGA [subjective global assessment]).

Nepro HP has CARBSTEADY® carbohydrate blend designed to help manage blood glucose response.

This is due to the presence of fibersol, a slow digested, low glycemic carbohydrate4,5. It is also enriched with a prebiotic FOS. Prebiotics may help support the management of uremia6.

Nepro HP is available in vanilla flavour in a 500ml ready-to-hang bottle and attaches directly to Abbott Nutrition giving sets.
