Nutrition and Renal Nutrition

Pharmko Nutrition Services

We create personalized treatments that are specific to each patient’s needs that are based on their doctor’s orders. Our custom formulations minimize volume while maximizing essential nutritional components to optimize therapy and minimize potential of side effects.

Pharmko uses a novel, top-of-the line pump with the unique ability to infuse numerous different types of infusions, along with its ability to clamp directly onto the dialysis machine, (no poles needed).

We service the renal patient with all specialty medications relevant to their disease state, replete with educating the patient, optimal delivery preferences and coordination of the prior authorization process from beginning to end.
