Nutritional Supplement Policy
Malnutrition is common among patients in stages 3 to 5 of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Maintaining or improving nutritional status is a challenge, and it is often necessary to rely on nutritional supplements to optimize intake.
The BC Renal Agency (BCPRA) funds nutritional supplements for all registered kidney patients, both those on dialysis and those in earlier stages of the disease. To access the renal nutritional supplement program, kidney patients at nutritional risk must registered with BCPRA through the PROMIS database.
