Nestle Novasource Renal FAQs
Q. How often should i use Novasource Renal nutritionally complete formula?
Your doctor or Registered Dietitian will determine how many servings of Novasource complete nutritional formula to have each day. The number of servings per day depends on the amount of fluid you are allowed each day and how many calories and grams of protein you need each day to stay well-nourished. Since it contains 475 calories and 22 g of protein in 8 fl oz, typically one serving per day is recommended, but remember to ask your doctor or Registered Dietitian how much is right for you.
Q. Is Novasource Renal formula appropriate for a pre-dialysis diet?
Pre-dialysis patients often need to restrict protein in their diet. Once patients are on dialysis, they need to have a higher protein diet to replace the protein that is often filtered out during the dialysis treatment. You should ask your doctor or Registered Dietitian for their opinion on the benefits of adding Novasource Renal formula to your kidney diet.
Q. Who should not drink Novasource Renal Formula?
Novasource RENAL formula is not appropriate if you are not on dialysis and are on a low protein diet to try to delay dialysis.

It is also not appropriate if you are eating well, do not need to gain weight, and your albumin (blood protein) is within the normal range, and you are not at risk for malnutrition.
