Renilon 4.0

A ready-to-drink, high energy, low protein, reduced mineral oral nutritional supplement for the dietary management of patients with renal disease (pre-dialysis).
  • 250kcal/bottle (2kcal/ml): energy-dense ONS^ for patients requiring fluid or volume restriction.
  • 5g protein/bottle (8% energy): decreased protein level to prevent an overloading of nitrogenous waste products due to impaired excretion.1,2
  • Reduced mineral content (sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium): for patients that require select mineral restriction.
  • Elevated levels of micronutrients with antioxidant properties (zinc, copper, manganese, selenium, 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.3-12
  • Does not contain preformed vitamin A: to prevent hypervitaminosis.11,13-17
