Control of volume status is a pivotal issue in haemodialysis therapy. Objective and practical management for maintaining normovolemia is needed.
The investigators hypothesized that intervention of volume status with the body composition monitor (BCM) may improved hemodynamic parameters and biomarkers in hemodialysis patients.
The investigators will assess BCM in enrolled hemodialysis patients by 4 weeks for 16 weeks During the former 8-week intervention period, The investigators will adjust patients' volume status according to the results of BCM.
During the latter 8-week observational period, The investigators will evaluate the changes of patients' hemodynamic parameters and biomarkers.
Control: Historical Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

The purpose of this study is to test the feasibility of trials that change the dialysis ultrafiltration rate (UFR) by limiting the maximum rate and to estimate the extent to which limiting...
In this study, the researchers want to find out how patients who have ultrafiltration (removal of excess fluid) 6 times a week and twice-weekly dialysis (removal of excess fluid and waste ...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the treatment of peritoneal ultrafiltration can improve survival and quality of life of refractory congestive heart failure with special a...
Patients with severe congestive heart failure show increased fluid body content which is often resistant to conventional diuretic therapy. Therefore, chronic heart failure patients have f...
A randomized clinical trial for patients with end stage renal disease in which a family consultation condition is compared against a treatment as usual control condition on the hospital re...
Among the renal cystic diseases that result in end-stage renal disease, an important hereditary cause is medullary cystic kidney disease, which affects adults in an autosomal dominant pattern. It is c...
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...
Interleukin-4 gene polymorphisms were found to be associated with periodontitis. The purpose of this case-control study was to evaluate association of IL4 VNTR polymorphism with periodontitis in patie...
Cross-sectional studies suggest that coffee drinking is associated with better renal function. However, to our knowledge, no prospective study has examined its relation with the risk of end-stage rena...
The separation of particles from a suspension by passage through a filter with very fine pores. In ultrafiltration the separation is accomplished by convective transport; in DIALYSIS separation relies instead upon differential diffusion. Ultrafiltration occurs naturally and is a laboratory procedure. Artificial ultrafiltration of the blood is referred to as HEMOFILTRATION or HEMODIAFILTRATION (if combined with HEMODIALYSIS).
Extracorporeal ultrafiltration technique without hemodialysis for treatment of fluid overload and electrolyte disturbances affecting renal, cardiac, or pulmonary function.
A genus of ALGAE in the family Lagenidiaceae. One species (L. giganteum) parasitizes the larval stage of MOSQUITOES and is used in its biological control (PEST CONTROL, BIOLOGICAL); it also causes disease in freshwater FISHES.
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.
