Body Mass Index and All-cause Mortality in Chronic Kidney Disease: A Dose –response Meta-analysis of Observational Studies
This article provides a dose –response meta-analysis to evaluate the relationship between body mass index (BMI) and all-cause and disease-specific mortality in chronic kidney disease (CKD) by pooling together early stage, hemodialysis, and peritoneal dialysis patients. We evaluated eligible studies that published between 1966 and December 2014 by searching in PubMed, Object View and Interaction Design (OVID), and the Scopus databases. We used random-effects generalized least squares spline models for trend estimation to derive pooled dose–response estimates. (Source: Journal of Renal Nutrition)

Dietary Reduction of Advanced Glycation End Products: An Opportunity for Improved Nutrition Care
Advanced glycation end products (AGEs), also known as glycotoxins, are formed both exogenously and endogenously. The Maillard reaction is an exogenous, nonenzymatic process which occurs between sugars and a free amino group of proteins, lipids, or nucleic acids when they are heat treated, resulting in AGE formation.1 The reaction contributes to the flavor, color, and aroma of food. A portion of food-derived AGEs are intestinally absorbed, accumulating in cells and tissues.2 Many types of AGEs exist, and a common dietary AGE, carboxymethyllysine is a biomarker for protein damage.

Summertime Thoughts
Happy summer, everyone. I am writing this after recently returning from the National Kidney Foundation Spring Clinical meeting which was held in Orlando this past April. At this meeting, I was privileged to meet many wonderful dietitians from throughout the world. The work these dietitians do is inspiring, and a large number of them shared their stories of volunteering on behalf of improving the lives of people with chronic kidney disease. Our Kopple Award winner, Tilakavati Karupaiah, PhD, spoke of her work starting a program to educate dietitians in Malaysia on renal nutrition. (Source: Journal of Renal Nutrition)

Air Displacement Plethysmography Versus Bioelectrical Impedance to Determine Body Composition in Pediatric Hemodialysis Patients
Protein energy wasting is difficult to assess in pediatric hemodialysis (HD) populations because of fluid shifts. Body composition (BC) analysis aids in monitoring nutrition therapy's effects on fat and lean mass. Air displacement plethysmography (ADP) is a “practical” gold standard for fat mass (FM) measurements. We aim to compare BC measures in a pediatric HD population via anthropometry, ADP, and bioelectrical impedance (BIA). (Source: Journal of Renal Nutrition)

Personal Attitudes Toward Weight in Overweight and Obese US Hemodialysis Patients
Overweight and obesity have become increasingly common among end-stage renal disease patients on hemodialysis. Yet, little attention has been given to what hemodialysis patients themselves think of their weight, how they perceive it affects their health, and their attitudes about or desire for weight reduction. We explored these issues using a survey that we designed specifically for the dialysis population. (Source: Journal of Renal Nutrition)

Improvement in Nutritional Status in Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease-4 by a Nutrition Education Program With No Impact on Renal Function and Determined by Male Sex
Protein –energy wasting (PEW) is associated with increased morbidity and mortality and a rapid deterioration of kidney function in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, there is little information regarding the effect of nutrition intervention. The aims of this study were to evaluate the ef ficacy and safety of a nutrition education program (NEP) in patients with nondialysis dependent CKD (NDD-CKD), based on the diagnostic criteria for PEW proposed by the International Society of Renal Nutrition and Metabolism.

Medical Nutrition Therapy for Pediatric Kidney Stone Prevention, Part 3: Cystinuria
Cystinuria is an inherited, genetic condition that causes hyper-excretion of cystine and other dibasic amino acids (lysine, arginine, and ornithine) in the urine due to impaired transport in the proximal renal tubules. The low solubility of cystine leads to precipitation and the formation of renal stones.1,2 While rare, this condition accounts for a relatively significant proportion of pediatric nephrolithiasis, up to 10% in children compared to 1% in adults.3,4 Furthermore, as compared to other causes of pediatric stone formation, cystinuria is more likely to result in frequent recurrence, morbidity, and need for medical ...

n-3 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids for the Management of Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease
The Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) once wrote: “No diet will remove all the fat from your body because the brain is entirely fat. Without a brain, you might look good, but all you could do is run for public office.” He was not right in one thing: the brain is just about 60% fat. And of that percentage, the biggest portion comes from n-3 poly unsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs). (Source: Journal of Renal Nutrition)

Can almond milk be called milk? Producers of plant-based beverages are being challenged on using the word milk. In December 2016, 32 members of Congress, backed by members of the dairy industry, asked the Food and Drug Administration to demand creators of plant-based beverages to create a new name for their products. This bipartisan group asked manufactures to not use the word “milk” claiming it is misleading for consumers.1 As recently as December 2015, a case alleging Trade Joe's was misleading customers in its packaging of soy milk and violated the standards of identity of milk was dismissed by the judge sta...

Renal Response to a Protein Load in Healthy Young Adults as Determined by Iohexol Infusion Clearance, Cimetidine-Inhibited Creatinine Clearance, and Cystatin C Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate
Renal reserve (RR) measures the increase in glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in response to a protein load; lack of RR could indicate subclinical kidney disease but such a test is not routinely used in clinical practice. The purpose of this study was to compare a meat versus liquid protein load in a cystatin C –based (Cys-C) RR test using cimetidine-inhibited creatinine clearance (Cr Cl) and iohexol infusion clearance (Io Cl) for validation. The design was cross-sectional analysis and the setting was a Clinical Research Center. (Source: Journal of Renal Nutrition)

Nonpharmacologic Strategies to Modulate Nuclear Factor Erythroid 2 –related Factor 2 Pathway in Chronic Kidney Disease
Nuclear factor erythroid 2 –related factor 2 (Nrf2) is a transcription factor with a high sensitivity to oxidative stress, which regulates the expression of detoxifying enzymes, besides that, can also control antioxidant and anti-inflammatory cellular responses. Therefore, the modulation of this transcription factor can be a new therapeutic approach to reduce complications in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients, like oxidative stress and inflammation, which leads to increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease, the major cause of death in these patients.

Standardized Method to Measure Muscle Force at the Bedside in Hemodialysis Patients
In hemodialysis, diminution of muscle strength constitutes a major prognostic factor of mortality. Currently, measurement of quadriceps isometric maximal voluntary force (MVF) represents the reference method to investigate muscle strength. However, reduction of MVF is rarely detected in these patients due to the absence of portative bedside tools in clinical practice. The purposes of this study were therefore to assess the agreement of a belt-stabilized handheld dynamometer (HHD) with the dynamometer chair (reference method) and to determine intratester and intertester reliability of the quadriceps MVF measurements using b...

Crunch on This …A Fresh Look at Nuts for Renal Nutrition
As renal dietitians, common questions our clients ask of us are “Can I eat this or that?” The answer depends on the nutrient composition of the particular food item in question. Nuts are often one of those foods on the “Can I” question. Unfortunately, these food items end up on the high potassium and/or high phosphorus food lists. However, nuts offer so much nutritionally. It should not be surprising to learn that Americans are adding more nuts to their diet.1 Perhaps, we should take another look at this nutritional powerhouse. (Source: Journal of Renal Nutrition)
