Medical Nutrition: Health Starts With Nutrition

As one of the world’s leading specialists in medical nutrition, Fresenius Kabi is committed to providing the best possible support for patients and healthcare professionals alike. 

We know nutrition is inseparably linked to health and well-being – that’s why we’ve been working hard to find nutritional solutions for over 60 years. We focus on the particular challenges for vulnerable groups and those with serious illnesses, such as digestive tract diseases and cancer. We also offer solutions for surgery, intensive care, pediatric care, and geriatric care, aiming to facilitate tailor-made solutions for every specific nutritional need.

We’ve been at the forefront of developing and providing high-quality medical nutrition, also called clinical nutrition. Our dedication is based on extensive research, years of experience, and a deep commitment to our patients.

Innovation and efficiency help us make high-quality nutrition available to an ever-growing number of people. We’re constantly in touch with medical nutrition associations, and we incorporate the latest medical and scientific insights into product development and concepts.


Renal Insufficiency

The main function of the kidneys is the excretion of metabolic waste mainly from protein metabolism. Further functions include the maintenance of fluid balance, regulation of electrolyte status and other processes in the body. Renal failure involves the breakdown of one or all of these functions and causes profound abnormalities in overall nutrient metabolism.

The predominating symptom of renal insufficiency is the accumulation of urea in the blood. Urea is the waste product of protein breakdown and must be eliminated via the kidneys. This reflects the importance of adequate protein or amino acid intake in patients with renal insufficiency. 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.

Chronic kidney disease can be characterized as progressive loss of kidney function. Symptoms of end-stage renal disease become apparent and kidney transplantation or maintenance dialysis is essential for survival. 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 Ketoanalogues of essential amino acids and essential amino acids to reduce nitrogen load in patients with chronic kidney disease and delay time to dialysis. Fresenius Kabi is the innovator of Ketosteril.

Fresenius Kabi also offers specific products for enteral and parenteral nutrition to ensure optimal nutritional management in this patient group. 

Keto-Analogues: Slowing chronic kidney disease progression with nutrition

Chronic kidney disease, or CKD, is irreversible and can be accompanied by lifestyle and dietary changes – and yet, for those affected, adapting their nutrition often remains critical. Slowing the progression of chronic kidney disease calls for special diets and nutritional supplements. A combination of essential amino acids and keto-analogues of essential amino acids has proven effective, aiming to limit the amount of protein in the diet while meeting the need for essential amino acids and ameliorating uremic symptoms. Especially in advanced stages of CKD, this diet can be crucial and slow down the progression of the disease.6

Malnutrition: a global issue

Malnutrition can affect everyone, including:

  • 1 in 3 patients in care homes
  • 1 in 3 older people living independently
  • 1 in 4 patients in hospitals
  • 1 in 3 cancer patients

Oncology, intensive care, nephrology, surgery, pediatrics, geriatrics, and nursing: malnutrition is relevant in numerous medical fields and poses a significant challenge in hospital and nursing environments. Patients who are already debilitated or ill are at increased risk of malnutrition, and the effects can be severe, leading to longer hospital stays, delayed recovery processes, and increased complication rates.

Approximately 40% of hospital patients worldwide are malnourished¹
33 million patients are affected by malnutrition in Europe²
Malnutrition costs an estimated €170 billion a year to European countries¹
Clinical nutrition is affected in treating malnutrition and avoiding associated costs³
In the UK, only 2.1% of the costs  associated with malnutrition and associated diseases went toward clinical nutrition⁴
More than 50% of patients in hospital don't  eat their entire meal⁵

Medical nutrition: more than just food

We offer optimal solutions for both enteral and parenteral nutrition that meet the highest quality standards so that healthcare professionals can make the right medical nutrition decision according to the patient’s individual needs, medical diagnosis, and treatment goals.

Parenteral nutrition: ensuring sufficient nutrition

Some critically and chronically ill patients are unable to absorb or utilize sufficient nutrients through their digestive tract and must be fed parenterally via a central venous or peripheral catheter. The nutrients are administered directly into the bloodstream via an intravenous infusion. This special blend of amino acids, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals bypasses the gastrointestinal tract altogether.

We’re the global market leader in parenteral nutrition. Thanks to our experience, we can support healthcare professionals with our comprehensive portfolio, from single components to multi-chamber bags for easy application.

We know and understand the needs of both the healthcare profession and the patients and try to accompany their daily routine with our products in the best possible way. Learn more about how we support enteral and parenteral nutrition with a sophisticated portfolio of pumps and disposables.

Medical nutrition support at home

When medical nutrition becomes a permanent condition, it can also be an out-of-hospital treatment thanks to our products. This is a big plus for patients: they can be discharged from the hospital earlier without their care being jeopardized. We accompany healthcare professionals and patients in their care and have adapted our accessories to the different needs so that they can also be used by patients and caregivers at home or in nursing homes.

Enteral nutrition: special formulations for special needs

Enteral nutrition refers to the delivery of nutrients through the digestive tract, either orally or using special feeding tubes. This form of nutrition can be used for all patients with insufficient oral intake, such as in cases of lack of appetite and weight loss, additional energy and nutrient requirements due to illness, or difficulty eating like after a stroke. Our enteral nutrition products contain all the necessary nutrients, vitamins, and minerals to meet individual needs.

MedTech as part of the patient journey

To best serve our patients and healthcare professionals, we focus on what they really need. To this end, we work closely with experts and users in different countries to understand their diverse priorities. Our products and services are used by medical professionals across the care continuum – from research labs and blood and plasma collection centers to hospitals, long-term care facilities, alternate care sites, clinics, and homes.

25% of the world's blood donations are collected in our blood bags
> 1 million installed base of infusion pumps globally

Our integrated solutions enable better equipment usage and management and, thanks to advanced connectivity, offer simple and effective data management with state-of-the-art software. This user-friendly and robust yet simple-to-use system improves various hospital workflows. 

To ensure quality, we monitor and continuously optimize the applicability, effectiveness, and safety of our products and services.
