Impact of BMI Variations on Survival in Elderly Hemodialysis Patients
In elderly hemodialysis patients, protein-energy wasting is associated with poor outcome; however, the association between body mass index (BMI) changes over time, and survival has been seldom studied in this particularly frail population. (Source: Journal of Renal Nutrition)

Renal Dietitians' Perceptions of Roles and Responsibilities in Outpatient Dialysis Facilities
This study was designed to determine what job responsibilities renal dietitians working in outpatient dialysis facilities consider as most important and most time-consuming. We hypothesized that more time-consuming activities would not always be considered most important. (Source: Journal of Renal Nutrition)

High-Protein Frozen Desserts
Frozen desserts hold popular appeal as they are easy to consume and comforting, especially in warm weather. In a clinical context, frozen desserts can be a suitable option for providing calories and protein to patients in need. Nutrition product companies have recognized this need and created a variety of high-protein dessert foods. In addition, some frozen desserts are considered good sources of protein although not being produced or marketed specifically for protein content. Achieving adequate protein intake can be challenging for the chronic kidney disease (CKD) population, especially those on hemodialysis or peritoneal...

The Nutrition Needs of Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease in Health Care Community Settings
When initially considered, the average person may be quick to conclude that diets are better managed in health care communities than at home. By definition, health care communities are living environments for persons with chronic conditions, functional limitations, or need for supervision or assistance.1 Skilled nursing facilities and assisted living facilities are examples of health care communities.1 One reason for the assumption that diets may be better managed in health care communities is that these environments are usually controlled and therefore should result in better control of nutrition intake.

Fat Mass Is Associated With Cystatin C and Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate in Adolescents With Type 1 Diabetes
In the February issue of this journal, Mohebi et al.1 reported that, among men with chronic kidney disease (CKD), greater fat mass was associated with improved survival. The same authors also demonstrated that abdominal obesity was associated with 30% lower risk of developing CKD over 10-year follow-up in adults.2 In addition, a meta-analysis by Carnethon et al.3 found that overweight adults with type 2 diabetes are at a lower risk for mortality than their normal-weight diabetic peers. Diabetes remains the leading cause of CKD in the Western world, with early diabetic kidney disease presenting in adolescence in t...

The Effect of Psychological Intervention on Thirst and Interdialytic Weight Gain in Patients on Chronic Hemodialysis: A Randomized Controlled Trial
Patients on hemodialysis (HD) are unable to eliminate excess fluid and must adhere to a regimen of dietary fluid restriction to prevent volume overload. Thirst represents a major obstacle to the achievement of such a goal. The aim of our study was (1) to assess the association of thirst and xerostomia, measured by validated questionnaires, Dialysis Thirst Inventory and Xerostomia Inventory with interdialytic weight gain (IDWG) and (2) to evaluate in a randomized controlled trial (RCT), the effect of psychological intervention on IDWG and thirst.

Body Composition Affects Urea Distribution Volume Estimated by Watson's Formula
Dialysis machines use the Watson formula (Vwatson) to estimate the urea distribution volume (UDV) to calculate the online Kt/V for each dialysis session. However, the equation could give rise to inaccuracies. The present study analyzes whether body composition affects UDV estimated by Vwatson in comparison to bioimpedance spectroscopy (Vbis) as the reference method. (Source: Journal of Renal Nutrition)

Can Pizza Fit in to the Renal Diet? A Review of the Phosphorus, Potassium, and Sodium Content of Selected Frozen and Delivery Options
Pizza is one of the most widely consumed foods in the United States.1 According to “What We Eat in America,” the dietary interview component of the NHANES 2007 to 2010, approximately 13% of Americans are eating pizza on any given day.2 In addition, pizza can account for as much as 25% of the day's energy requirements and is a top contributor to sodium in the typical American diet.2 Pizza sales at chain restaurants are growing, but according to industry reports, frozen pizza sales are also up in the United States.

Optimizing Nutritional Care for Pregnant Patients on Hemodialysis
Do you have pregnant patients on hemodialysis? Have you searched for answers regarding nutritional care only to find that there was a limited amount of information on the topic? This is likely because of the low incidence of pregnant patients on hemodialysis. In a study from 1992 to 2003, it was found that pregnancy occurred in 1% to 7% of women on chronic dialysis.1 (Source: Journal of Renal Nutrition)

The Kidney–Gut Axis: Implications for Nutrition Care
There is increasing clinical evidence that patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) have a distinctly dysbiotic intestinal bacterial community, termed the gut microbiota, which in turn drives a cascade of metabolic abnormalities, including uremic toxin production, inflammation, and immunosuppression, that ultimately promotes progressive kidney failure and cardiovascular disease. As the gut microbiota is intimately influenced by diet, the discovery of the kidney–gut axis has created new therapeutic opportunities for nutritional intervention.

The Effects of Parenteral Amino Acid Therapy on Protein Carbamylation in Maintenance Hemodialysis Patients
Protein carbamylation is a urea-driven post-translational protein modification associated with mortality in dialysis patients. Free amino acids (AAs) are competitive inhibitors of protein carbamylation and animal studies suggest increasing AA concentrations reduces carbamylation burden. We hypothesized that AA therapy in maintenance hemodialysis patients would reduce carbamylation, carrying the potential to improve clinical outcomes. (Source: Journal of Renal Nutrition)

Factors Affecting Daily Physical Activity and Physical Performance in Maintenance Dialysis Patients
Maintenance hemodialysis (MHD) patients display reduced daily physical activity (DPA) and physical performance (PP). Previous studies did not differentiate the effects of kidney failure and MHD treatments from comorbidities as causes for reduced DPA and PP. In relatively healthy MHD patients and normal adults, we evaluated DPA and PP and examined relationships between DPA and PP and possible associations between anxiety or depression and DPA and PP. DPA, 6-minute walk distance (6-MWD), sit-to-stand (STS), and stair-climbing tests were measured in 72 MHD patients (40% diabetics) with limited comorbidities and 39 normal adul...

Benefit and Use of Prebiotics in Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease
Prebiotics are defined as a “nondigestible food ingredient that beneficially affects the host by selectively stimulating the growth and/or activity of one or a limited number of bacteria in the colon, thus improving host health.”1 Better known as fiber, prebiotics present several possibilities for improving outcomes in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Prebiotics work symbiotically with the probiotics to benefit the host. Probiotics are live microorganisms (“friendly” bacteria) that can provide benefits to the host when given in adequate amounts.

In 73.9% (17 of 23) patients, 17 genetic abnormalities in GNAS1 were detected. Seven (58.3%) of 12 nucleotide alterations comprised novel missense mutations and 3 nonsense. Mismutations were in different manner. (Source: Journal of Renal Nutrition)
