2x/week dialysis

Naomi Niari Dalimunthe, Abdurrahim Rasyid Lubis
INTRODUCTION: Reticulocyte hemoglobin equivalent (RET-He) is a new parameter for evaluating iron status. This study aims to assess diagnostic value and investigate RET-He as early predictor of response to intravenous iron supplementation. METHODS: Seventy-two regular hemodialysis patients at Adam Malik Hospital were studied from April to May 2011. RET-He was compared with conventional iron parameters for identification of iron deficiency. Fifteen patients with iron deficiency anemia were selected to receive 100 mg iron sucrose intravenous during every dialysis session (2x/weeks) for 4 weeks...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: The aim of this controlled study was to investigate the effect of high-load strength training on glucose tolerance in patients undergoing dialysis. METHODS: 23 patients treated by dialysis underwent a 16-week control period followed by 16 weeks of strength training three times a week. Muscle fiber size, composition and capillary density were analyzed in biopsies obtained in the vastus lateralis muscle. Glucose tolerance and the insulin response were measured by a 2-hour oral glucose tolerance test...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of high-load strength training and protein intake in patients undergoing dialysis with a focus on muscle strength, physical performance, and muscle morphology. DESIGN: This was a randomized controlled study conducted in three dialysis centers. SUBJECTS: Subjects for the study included 29 patients undergoing dialysis. INTERVENTION: The participants went through a control period of 16 weeks before completing 16 weeks of strength training...

PURPOSE: The dialysis dose is usually assessed by Kt/V urea; however, it is possible that middle molecule (MM) removal could play a role in optimal treatment. Vitamin B12 is a classical MM marker and Kd-B12 is used to compute a MM-based dialysis index, requiring a weekly total clearance (Kd-B12 + renal creatinine clearance (CrCl) > or =30 L, corresponding to IDB12> or =1 (Babb et al, Kidney Int, 1975). Recently, it was demonstrated that by increasing the total Kd-B12 per session (TCV) from 10 to 16 and to 26 L, the relative risk (RR) of death was reduced from 1 to 0...

BACKGROUND: Previous investigations have demonstrated that choline deficiency, manifested in low plasma-free choline concentration and hepatic injury, may develop in patients who require long-term total parenteral nutrition (TPN). Preliminary studies have suggested lecithin or choline supplementation might lead to improved visual memory in the elderly and reverse abnormal neuropsychological development in children. We sought to determine if choline-supplemented TPN would lead to improvement in neuropsychological test scores in a group of adult, choline-deficient outpatients receiving TPN...
