Brief Answer:
It contains a considerable amount of calories.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I would like to inform you that nepro contains 425 kcal in 8 0z. So if you want to take proteins via nepro, than you should reduce the calories from your diet.
If you have been taking 1500 calories in total, it means that now you will take about 1100 calories + nepro.
If you do not want to reduce calories than talk to your dietitian to make you an appropriate diet for diabetes and dialysis.

Hope i was helpful.

Kind regards,
Dr.Mirjeta
