Food Intake Assessment of Elderly Patients on Hemodialysis

To investigate whether the dietary intake of elderly patients on hemodialysis (HD) is lower than that of elderly individuals with normal renal function. In addition, we also assessed whether the dietary intake of elderly on HD is lower on the dialysis day (DD) than on nondialysis days (non-DD).

This study aims to analyze the prevalence and to concentrate on the key risk factors that are responsible for hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in patients on HD visiting two dialysis centers in the city of Quetta in southwestern Pakistan. The overall incidence of HBV was found to be 16.1%, the overall incidence of HCV was found to be 43.2%, and two patients (1.6%) were found to be positive for both HBV and HCV. HIV was not found among patients seen at both hospitals during the study period. The main risk factors for development of a viral infection were the ...
