Health-related Quality of Life and Risk of Malnutrition among Persons on Maintenance Haemodialysis

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2018.113
Pages: 
Synopsis: 
We studied the association between health-related quality of life and risk of malnutrition among persons on maintenance haemodialysis. Persons on receiving maintenance haemodialysis had a poorer health-related quality of life score and were more likely to be at risk of malnutrition. This may have implications for effective patient management.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: The purpose of this study was to determine health-related quality of life (HRQOL) and risk of malnutrition among persons with chronic kidney disease (CKD), on maintenance haemodialysis.

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.109
Synopsis: 
An increased gross motor function level in children with spastic quadriparetic cerebral palsy (CP) affects their nutrition and growth level unfavorably. Children with CP who are in a better state functionally are closer to the normal nutrition and growth pattern.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between the gross motor function levels and nourishment and growth levels of children with spastic quadriparetic cerebral palsy.

Synopsis: 
In this study, we investigated the association between polypharmacy and risk of malnutrition. The findings indicate that among independent-living elderly persons, polypharmacy was associated with increased risk of malnutrition.

 

Objective: In this study, we evaluated the association of polypharmacy and nutritional status among independently-living elderly persons attending the outpatient clinics at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex (EWMSC).
