Nepro by Abbott that is intended for use as an oral nutritional supplement for those with certain indications including:


  • Patients receiving dialysis due to both acute and chronic kidney disease 
  • Cirrhosis
  • Conditions that require a high calorie, low volume nutritional drink.


It is specifically formulated for those with dialysis and marketed as 'Complete Renal Nutrition'.


Nepro HP



Abbott manufactures two Nepro products, Nepro HP and Nepro LP.


Most people can take Nepro LP or HP, regardless of whether or not they are on dialysis. There may be some rare contraindications but in general, it should be safe to take. You may want to check with your doctor before taking the nutritional supplement as they have your complete medical history.


As Nepro is specifically designed for those on dialysis, it would be fairly expensive to take purely as a nutritional supplement if you are healthy.  As mentioned, it is formulated for those with special nutritional needs.
