Therapeutic Effects of Oral Nutritional Supplements during Haemodialysis: Physician's Experience.



To evaluate the effects of predialytic oral nutritional supplementation in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients on maintenance haemodialysis (MHD).


NEPRO HP was provided to 77 CKD patients on maintenance haemodialysis (MHD) over 3 months. Efficacy parameters were improvement in albumin levels, weight and haemoglobin levels; safety parameters were serum potassium and phosphorus values; other parameters were SGA and MIS scores.


Mean serum albumin values showed a statistically significant increase. There was a statistically significant improvement in the mean body weight and haemoglobin of the patients in the second and third months of treatment. Serum phosphorus and potassium levels did not change in a statistically significant manner. There was improvement in nourishment status as detected by MIS and SGA scores. Two patients expired during the course of the study.


Predialytic oral supplementation with NEPRO HP improves nutritional status of CKD patients on MHD.
