Hi there ...

Thank you for the question ...

As she has poor intake and low protein diet , in this situation it would be ideal that she should get IV Amminovel and Salt free Albumin this will not only built her immunity and fulfill protein requirement but also helpful to get Neutirents .

Single dose of Protein free Albumin and Daily Aminovel for 5 days will speed up her recovery .

Get it please .

Regards.
