Abstract

The study investigated the association of the degree of malnutrition to anthropometric and biochemical measures, malnutrition inflammation score (MIS) and dietary intake of subjects undergoing hemodialysis (HD). 72 non diabetic HD subjects from 3 major hospitals in Mysore city participated in the study. Health habits, disease history, somatic and clinical measures, MIS and dietary intakes were recorded. Majority (75) fell in the underweight category of BMI (body mass index) classification. Serum levels of creatinine, TIBC (total iron binding capacity), potassium, calcium and phosphorus values were significantly higher (Pâ°Â¤0.01) in males whereas urea, albumin, sodium, serum protein and cholesterol were significantly higher (Pâ°Â¤0.01) in females. MIS classified patients into 72 mild-moderately malnourished, 15 severely malnourished and 13 normal. Each measure clearly depicted the existence of malnutrition indicating the need for a nutrition support system. Therefore the present study can be a base for a further study to find the effect of a renal specific nutritional supplement.
