In this study, the investigators hypothesize that long-term administration of adequate intradialytic oral nutritional supplementation will increase visceral protein concentrations and somatic protein stores in malnourished chronic hemodialysis patients.

We propose to identify malnourished chronic kidney dialysis patients through a statewide effort and subsequently treat them based on a protocol (provision of oral nutritional supplementati...
This is a Phase IV randomized controlled study assessing the effectiveness of a commercially available nutritional supplement on malnourished prevalent hemodialysis patients. Patients wil...
To conduct a pragmatic randomized clinical trial in which the researchers will determine the mortality impact of a protocol whereby all hemodialysis patients receive an oral, protein-based...
The goal of this study is to evaluate the role of nutritional Vitamin D deficiency as a potential contributor to the morbidity witnessed in patients with end-stage renal disease
High blood pressure is very common among elderly Canadians. Clinical trials show clear benefit from lowering blood pressure in hypertensive elderly patients. These trials also demonstrate ...
Lithium is the treatment of choice for patients suffering from bipolar disorder (BD) but prolonged use induces renal dysfunction in at least 20% of patient. Intensive monitoring of kidney functioning ...
Chronic renal failure, especially end-stage renal disease is a serious health problem associated with high mortality rate. Uremic syndrome leads to increased oxidative stress, inflammation and dyslipi...
Patient malnutrition is a significant problem in the process of rehabilitation and treatment. One of the tools that can reveal the risk of malnutrition is a series of standardized nutritional question...
Renal fibrosis is a common outcome of nearly all kinds of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and eventually progresses to end-stage renal disease. The identification of an optimal biomarker of renal fibrosi...
Previous research shows that endurance performance can be enhanced by placebo ergogenic aids. This study investigates the ergogenic placebo response, which we define as an increase in objective and ph...
A genus of filamentous CYANOBACTERIA found in most lakes and ponds. It has been used as a nutritional supplement particularly due to its high protein content.
Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level for more than three months. Chronic kidney insufficiency is classified by five stages according to the decline in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE and the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA). The most severe form is the end-stage renal disease (CHRONIC KIDNEY FAILURE). (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002)
Functional KIDNEY FAILURE in patients with liver disease, usually LIVER CIRRHOSIS or portal hypertension (HYPERTENSION, PORTAL), and in the absence of intrinsic renal disease or kidney abnormality. It is characterized by intense renal vasculature constriction, reduced renal blood flow, OLIGURIA, and sodium retention.
Final stage of a liver disease when the liver failure is irreversible and LIVER TRANSPLANTATION is needed.
KIDNEY injuries associated with diabetes mellitus and affecting KIDNEY GLOMERULUS; ARTERIOLES; KIDNEY TUBULES; and the interstitium. Clinical signs include persistent PROTEINURIA, from microalbuminuria progressing to ALBUMINURIA of greater than 300 mg/24 h, leading to reduced GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE and END-STAGE RENAL DISEASE.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
