The study team aims to provide a food snack that is high in protein (30 g) for two weeks each month (6 treatments per patient per month) for 6 consecutive months, post-dialysis treatment, to in-center hemodialysis patients of all vintages and with all levels and types of comorbidities. The study team will compare changes in serum albumin during the intervention (6 months) using the patients' own serum albumin results that are collected for three months prior to and three months after the intervention. Additionally, the study team will determine participants' dietary habits and appetite pre-, during and post-intervention.

The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of mid-morning gel snacks on subjective appetite, glucose and insulin responses, and food intake in healthy weight young adults.
It is a blind randomized clinical trial of nutritional intervention in humans with a snack (seaweeds and carob), compared to a control snack without the bioactive ingredients studied but o...
The purpose of this study is to determine if when one eats protein can change how the body uses food for energy. Researchers will also test if eating a high protein breakfast can change on...
The objective of this study is to determine how the protein source and the physical form of food consumed at breakfast impact food intake. Research will be conducted by assessing feelings ...
The investigators previous studies have shown that obese and non-obese individuals respond differently to daily intake of snack food. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the...
Action myoclonus - renal failure is a rare syndrome associated with a progressive myoclonic epilepsy and renal impairment that may lead to end-stage renal failure. It is an autosomal recessive genetic...
A chickpea-based high protein, ready-to-eat snack was prepared using six chickpea types. The chickpea seeds and their corresponding snack products were analyzed for proximate composition, antinutrient...
Food and beverage packaging is increasingly used in hospital food service provision. Previous research has identified that the packaging used in New South Wales hospitals can be difficult to open by o...
This study compared the effect of a snack with ingredients to slow carbohydrate digestion (Test-snack) on postprandial blood glucose and insulin concentrations and subjective appetite ratings. We hypo...
Kidney transplantation is the preferred treatment for end-stage renal failure. Unfortunately, donor organ shortages prevent many individuals receiving a renal transplant and there is a need to increas...
Condition where a primary dysfunction of either heart or kidney results in failure of the other organ (e.g., HEART FAILURE with worsening RENAL INSUFFICIENCY).
A severe irreversible decline in the ability of kidneys to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal failure, either acute (KIDNEY FAILURE, ACUTE) or chronic (KIDNEY FAILURE, CHRONIC), requires HEMODIALYSIS.
A diet that contains limited amounts of protein. It is prescribed in some cases to slow the progression of renal failure. (From Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level in the ability to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal insufficiency can be classified by the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE. The most severe form is KIDNEY FAILURE. Renal function may deteriorate slowly (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, CHRONIC) or precipitously (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, ACUTE).
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.
Food is any substance consumed to provide nutritional support for the body. It is usually of plant or animal origin, and contains essential nutrients, such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, or minerals. The substance is ingested by an organism ...
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...
