Can I use ProT Gold for dialysis?

Yes, ProT GOLD is effective for nutritional support for your ESRD patients on Hemodialysis. Oral protein supplementation assists in addressing the catabolic effects of Hemodialysis.

Rich in nitrogen-donor amino acids critical to address conditions and disease states that deplete protein stores. Low in phosphorus and potassium.

Uniquely powerful formulation with an enhanced and fortified amino acid profile. A complete protein supplement with all essential, non-essential, and conditionally essential amino acids. Nano-Hydrolyzed and rapid absorption.

• Pro-T Gold is enhanced with a number of sulfur-containing and aromatic amino acids for better balance at the cellular level including 3g of Arginine and 500mg Taurine per serving.

• Nutrient-dense - 17.5g total protein per 30mL serving, including 2.5g fortified amino acids, 70 calories/serving.

• Sugar, gluten, lactose, and soy-free. Safe for diabetics, dialysis patients, and patients with allergies (natural flavoring).

• Oral or enteral use.

• Berry Flavor in Unit Dose or bottles.
