Before giving your child an amino acid injection 10% pediatric formula, it's important to know that these injections are:
  • used to prevent weight loss and nitrogen deficiency in infants 
  • also used to treat babies who have digestive conditions that prevent them from naturally digesting and absorbing nutrients found in breast milk
  • also used as a supplement when high levels of protein are needed to treat a health condition
  • given intravenously
Dosing and length of treatment will depend on the child's health, age, and nutritional needs. Water-soluble vitamins, trace metals, electrolytes, and dextrose can be added to the formula if needed.
