Is Amway protein supplement safe for a CAPD dialysis patient?
Q: My question is that I am on CAPD dialysis. Every time I perform a exchange protein, essential amino acid and water soluble vitamin is lost via drained fluid. So I have to take 1.2 gm protein/kg body weight to maintain the balance. My serum albumin is low: 2.5 mg/dl. So I have a greater risk of peritonitis. So instead of taking high protein diet, I need a protein supplement. Can I take Amway protein supplement. Is it safe for a CAPD dialysis patient?
A:Yes, Amway protein powder is safe. You should continue to use it.
