Nutritional Markers in Patients undergoing Chronic Haemodialysis in Jamaica

Issue: 
Pages: 
284–9
Synopsis: 
This study found that eighty per cent of patients on chronic haemodialysis had moderate malnutrition. Factors associated with malnutrition in patients on dialysis were having end-stage renal disease secondary to diabetes mellitus, dialysis duration for ≤ six months, low serum albumin, pre-dialysis serum creatinine of less than 880 μmol/L, low total cholesterol and presence of arteriovenous fistula access.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: The main objective of the study is to assess the nutritional status in patients on chronic haemodialysis in Jamaica using the Subjective Global Assessment tool and to correlate this with measured serum nutritional biomarkers, and also to identify nutritional biomarkers that can be used to assess nutritional status of patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD).
