SUMMARY Objective To formulate a nutrient supplement using low cost, commonly available food ingredients and test its efficacy on various nutritional parameters in haemodialysis (HD) subjects. Design Prospective intervention study. Subjects 15 subjects who did not have diabetes were recruited for the study. The subjects served as self controls. Approach The subjects received a multi-nutrient formulation for a period of 3 months. Somatic status weight, mid upper arm circumference (MUAC), mid upper arm muscle circumference (MUAMC), waist and hip measurements, biochemical parameters blood urea nitrogen (BUN), total iron binding capacity (TIBC),serum levels of creatinine, albumin, triglycerides, sodium, potassium, calcium, phosphorus and high sensitive C-reactive protein(HsCRP), dietary intake and malnutrition inflammation score (MIS) were assessed. Results Significant increments (P ≤ 0.01) in anthropometric measurements. Significant increases (P ≤ 0.01) in Hb, BUN, serum creatinine, albumin and total protein and a significant decrease (P ≤ 0.01) in HsCRP and MIS were observed at the end of the study. An increase in baseline food/nutrient intake was also observed. Conclusion Nutritional supplementation designed for haemodialysis, improved their nutritional status in the short term study.
