Effect of high calorie high protein diet versus high calorie,glomerular filtration rate (GFR) based protein intake in non-obese advanced HF patients will be assessed. In this regard, protein intake impact will be measured on muscle mass, physical performance and renal function as main outcome. Rehospitalization, quality of life, depression an inflammatory status are second endpoints.
Baseline data will be gathered on demographic and clinical characteristics, medical history, treatments and medications. Before initiating intervention, individuals will be assessed for anemia and 25 (OH) D2 and electrolytes status. Any insufficiency or imbalance will be corrected by drug therapy or supplementation. At baseline and at all visits, half or one month intervals, routine laboratory tests for heart failure patients (including Complete blood count (CBC), electrolytes status, glucose, albumin, cholesterol, triglyceride, blood urea nitrogen (BUN), C-reactive Protein (CRP),creatinine, uric acid, ferritin, 25 (OH) D, B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP), thyroid function, Prealbumin, urine analysis), appetite status and anthropometric measurements (weight, Hip and waist circumference) will be performed. At baseline and by the end of month 6, body composition, muscle mass, hand grip strength, Short Physical Performance Battery (SPPB), plasma lactate and interleukin 6 (IL-6), GFR, depression status and quality of life will be assessed. Follow up duration will be one year for measuring readmission and mortality rate. If a study participant did not attend a visit, a staff of randomized clinical trial (RCT) center will attempt to reach her/him, her/his designated friend or family member by phone call.

Insulin causes sodium retention and hypoglycaemia and its use is associated with worse outcomes in heart failure (HF) with reduced ejection fraction. We have investigated whether this is also the case...
This study sought to describe the short-term health status benefits of angiotensin-neprilysin inhibitor (ARNI) therapy in patients with heart failure and reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF).

Heart failure with mid-range ejection fraction (HFmrEF) has been proposed as a new phenotype of heart failure. We therefore investigated the pulsatile hemodynamic characteristics and outcomes in patie...

A condition in which the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart was functionally impaired. This condition usually leads to HEART FAILURE or MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION, and other cardiovascular complications. Diagnosis is made by measuring the diminished ejection fraction and a depressed level of motility of the right ventricular wall.
A condition in which the LEFT VENTRICLE of the heart was functionally impaired. This condition usually leads to HEART FAILURE; MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; and other cardiovascular complications. Diagnosis is made by measuring the diminished ejection fraction and a depressed level of motility of the left ventricular wall.
A heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic need of the body. Heart failure can be caused by structural defects, functional abnormalities (VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION), or a sudden overload beyond its capacity. Chronic heart failure is more common than acute heart failure which results from sudden insult to cardiac function, such as MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
Enlargement of the HEART, usually indicated by a cardiothoracic ratio above 0.50. Heart enlargement may involve the right, the left, or both HEART VENTRICLES or HEART ATRIA. Cardiomegaly is a nonspecific symptom seen in patients with chronic systolic heart failure (HEART FAILURE) or several forms of CARDIOMYOPATHIES.
Heart failure caused by abnormal myocardial contraction during SYSTOLE leading to defective cardiac emptying.
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...
Obesity is the condition in which excess fat has accumulated in the body (mostly in subcutaneous tissues). clinical obesity is considered to be present when a person has a BMI of over 30 (Oxford Dictionary of Medicine). It is becoming increasing common i...
