Your child's PN may include a combination of carbohydrates (for energy), proteins (for muscle strength), lipids (fat), electrolytes, vitamins, and trace elements.
Even though PN often includes lipids, it will not make your child fat. Everyone needs calories, protein, and fat, in addition to other substances, to stay healthy.
Electrolytes include sodium, potassium, chloride, phosphate, calcium, and magnesium. They are important for maintaining almost every organ in your body, and help your heart, muscles, and nerves to work properly.
Vitamins include: A, D, E, K, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pyridoxine, pantothenic acid, biotin, folic acid, and cyanocobalamin.
Trace elements include zinc, copper, manganese, and chromium.
