Kindergen is a nutritionally complete powdered feed consisting of whey protein, carbohydrate, fat, vitamins, minerals and trace elements with low levels of potassium, chloride, calcium, phosphorus and vitamin A. A food for special medical purposes.
Indications and Prescribability
Kindergen is specifically designed as a sole source of nutrition or as a supplementary feed for the dietary management of infants and children with chronic renal failure where peritoneal rapid overnight dialysis (PROD) or continuous cycling peritoneal dialysis (CCPD) is required. In order to minimise the risk of bone disease the phosphate level was designed to be low and the calcium adjusted accordingly to give a calcium to phosphorus ratio of 1.2:1. Other modifications include a slightly higher sodium and a higher percentage of calories from fat.
