Renilon 7.5

  • 250kcal/bottle (2kcal/ml): energy-dense ONS^ for patients requiring fluid or volume restriction.
  • 9.4g protein/bottle (15% energy): moderate protein to aid in the dietary management of protein-energy malnutrition, frequently observed in patients on dialysis.1
  • Reduced mineral content (sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium): for patients that require select mineral restriction.
  • Elevated levels of micronutrients with antioxidant properties (copper, manganese, slenium,carotenoids, vitamin E, riboflavin, vitamin B6 folic acid, vitamin B12) compared to standard ONS^: to support and mitigate increased oxidative stress in pre-dialysis patients.2-13
  • Does not contain preformed vitamin A: to reduce the risk of hypervitaminosis.14-18
  • Does not contain vitamin D: to reduce the risk of toxicity as vitamin D cannot be converted sufficiently to active form by patients with end-stage renal failure.19
