Both in acute and chronic kidney disease, an impairment in renal functions results in the accumulation of waste products in the body and inability to regulate electrolyte and water balance. In acute kidney disease, these disturbances are typically reversible, whereas they are most often not in chronic renal failure. In general, patients with renal insufficiency require special nutrition support. Adequate protein or amino acid intake is necessary to rule out protein malnutrition while not overburdening renal capacity with waste products.
Fresenius Kabi offers specific products for enteral and parenteral nutrition to ensure optimal nutritional management in this patient group.
