In brief: Best time for Nephro

Nephro is a product that is high in protein, and low in potassium and phosphates.
If you have an 8 oz. Portion of nephro, it really does not matter when you ingest it, unless the patient is fluid overloaded. That is because hemodialysis (hd) does not remove protein. I would take it at the start of one's hd session to make sure an adequate amount of fluid, potassium and phosphorus is removed.
