Hubby has been struggling with eating. He is so tired and beat when he gets home from work, that he doesn't work to eat. I spoke with his renal dietitian today. She said there is only one supplemental shake that is recommended for dialysis patients and that is Nepro. Nepro is a high protein, low phosphorus and low potassium shake. It is also expensive. Only one store carries them locally and that is Rite Aid. For a box of 4 8oz shakes it is $16.
I gave the company a call and through their very friendly customer service found that they would send us some coupons for the shakes. I also found out that for dialysis patients they offer a special price on a case of 24. They said that the dialysis unit would need to fill out a form for the better price, but I definitely think it is worth the extra work. Just make sure you like the shakes before purchasing a case.
