Medical - Medical (general) / prescription
French term or phrase: CNO Mél. polym. normoprot.

The patient is given "CNO mél. polym. normoprot. et HYPERERNEG: 1 bouteille (...)"

I know that CNO stands for "Complément nutritionnels oraux" and mél = mélange but I am stumped on how to translat the rest of the abbreviated form (I think it is "polymorphique normoproteiné"

Thanks for your help!

agree  Herbmione Granger: This looks fine. Seems to be a product name (1 bouteille). I often got scripts for Pediasure when I worked at the pharm.

Asker: Thanks Claire! Would you know what NORMOPROTIDIQUES is in English?

agree  Herbmione Granger: Normoproteic or a normal amount of protein, I suppose, as opposed to hyperproteic/high-protein.
