In the management of patients with chronic kidney diseases (CKD), a low-protein diet usually refers to a diet with protein intake of 0.6 to 0.8 grams per kilogram of body weight per day (g/kg/day) and should include at least 50% high-biologic-value protein. It may be supplemented with essential acids or nitrogen- free ketoanalogues if <0.6 g/kg/d. Low-protein diet can reduce proteinuria especially in non-diabetic CKD patients. In hypoalbuminemic patients it may lead to an increase in serum albumin level...

Dietary modification is recommended in the management of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Individuals with CKD often have multiple comorbidities, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease, for which dietary modification is also recommended. As CKD progresses, nutrition plays an important role in mitigating risk for cardiovascular disease and decline in kidney function. The objectives of nutrition interventions in CKD include management of risk factors, ensuring optimal nutritional status throughout all stages of CKD, preventing buildup of toxic metabolic products, and avoiding complications of CKD...

BACKGROUND: Circulating advanced glycated end-products (AGEs) including pentosidine accumulating in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients due to retention and increased formation are thought to contribute to cardiovascular disease (CVD). Here we evaluated factors linked to increased plasma pentosidine and its association with mortality in patients with different stages of CKD and undergoing different treatments. METHODS: Plasma pentosidine, biomarkers of inflammation, oxidative stress and nutritional status were investigated in CKD 1-2 (n = 37), CKD 3-4 (n = 54), CKD 5 non-dialyzed (CKD5-ND; n = 386), peritoneal dialysis (PD; n = 74) and hemodialysis (HD; n = 195) patients...

BACKGROUND: Low-protein diets (LPD) are an important means of delaying the need for dialysis and attaining a stable metabolic balance in chronic kidney disease (CKD). Many authors consider a low educational level and illiteracy to be adverse features for a good dietary compliance. CASE PRESENTATION: We report the case of a 77-year old woman, illiterate, affected by advanced CKD (stage 4 according to KDIGO guidelines). She was initially ashamed of her problem and did not declare it, leading to an overzealous reduction in protein intake...

AIM: Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD), a systemic disorder caused by mutation in genes encoding polycystins, has been reported to lead to metabolic derangements including new-onset diabetes mellitus after kidney transplantation. We analyzed markers of insulin resistance (IR), inflammation, nutritional status and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients with ADPKD and ESRD patients with other primary kidney diseases. METHODS: In a post hoc cross-sectional analysis in 254 non-diabetic CKD 5 patients starting on dialysis, glucose metabolism (insulin, IGF-1, homeostasis model assessment of IR, HOMA-IR), inflammation (high sensitivity C-reactive protein, interleukin-6, and tumor necrosis factor), nutritional status, and bone mineral density (BMD), were assessed...

BACKGROUND: Pregnancy in women with advanced CKD becoming increasingly common. However, experience with low-protein diets in CKD patients in pregnancy is still limited. Aim of this study is to review the results obtained over the last 15 years with moderately restricted low-protein diets in pregnant CKD women (combining: CKD stages 3-5, proteinuria: nephrotic at any time, or > =1 g/24 at start or referral; nephrotic in previous pregnancy). CKD patients on unrestricted diets were employed for comparison...

BACKGROUND: Dietary treatment is helpful in CKD patients, but nutritional interventions are scarcely implemented. The main concern of the renal diets is its feasibility with regards to daily clinical practice especially in the elderly and co-morbid patients. This study aimed to evaluate the effects of a pragmatic, step-wise, personalized nutritional support in the management of CKD patients on tertiary care. METHODS: This is a case-control study. It included 823 prevalent out-patients affected by CKD stage 3b to 5 not-in-dialysis, followed by tertiary care in nephrology clinics; 305 patients (190 males, aged 70 ± 12 years) received nutritional support (nutritional treatment Group, NTG); 518 patients (281 males, aged 73 ± 13 years) who did not receive any dietary therapy, formed the control group (CG)...

Heart failure (HF) is a major health-care problem and the prognosis of affected patients is poor. HF often coexists with a number of comorbidities of which declining renal function is of particular importance. A loss of glomerular filtration rate, as in acute kidney injury (AKI) or chronic kidney disease (CKD), independently predicts mortality and accelerates the overall progression of cardiovascular disease and HF. Importantly, cardiac and renal diseases interact in a complex bidirectional and interdependent manner in both acute and chronic settings...

BACKGROUND: The importance of diet in the management of kidney transplantation (KT), as well as other treatment options of chronic kidney disease (CKD), is generally acknowledged. However, data regarding vitamin intake are very limited. Vitamins are essential in maintaining good nutritional status and preventing many chronic complications. It is still not clear which treatment modality imposes the highest risk of dietary vitamin deficiency and whether successful KT reverses such a threat...

Anaemia is an important issue in patients undergoing haemodialysis. We aimed to identify a better dosing schedule of a fixed monthly dose of continuous erythropoietin receptor activator (CERA) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) on haemodialysis. The CERA dosing schedule included 100 μg once monthly for 2 months, 50 μg twice monthly for 2 months and then 100 μg once monthly for two months. The effectiveness was determined by comparing haematocrit, nutritional status (serum protein and albumin) and inflammatory markers (tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-α, interleukin (IL)-1, IL-6 and Hepcidin) at the beginning of the study with those at the end of the study...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Protein-Energy Wasting (PEW) is the depletion of protein/energy stores observed in the most advanced stages of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). PEW is highly prevalent among patients on chronic dialysis, and is associated with adverse clinical outcomes, high morbidity/mortality rates and increased healthcare costs. This narrative review was aimed at exploring the pathophysiology of PEW in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) on hemodialysis. The main aspects of nutritional status evaluation, intervention and monitoring in this clinical setting were described, as well as the current approaches for the prevention and treatment of ESRD-related PEW...

BACKGROUND: People living with chronic kidney disease (CKD) experience a range of symptoms and often have complex comorbidities. Many pharmacological interventions for people with CKD have known risks of adverse events. Acupuncture is widely used for symptom management in patients with chronic diseases and in other palliative care settings. However, the safety and efficacy of acupuncture for people with CKD remains largely unknown. OBJECTIVES: We aimed to evaluate the benefits and harms of acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, acupressure, moxibustion and other acupuncture-related interventions (alone or combined with other acupuncture-related interventions) for symptoms of CKD...

OBJECTIVES: Body composition analysis is required for accurate assessment of nutritional status in patients with predialysis chronic kidney disease (CKD). The reference method for assessing body fat is dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA), but it is relatively expensive and often not available for widespread clinical use. There is only limited data on the utility of less expensive and easily available alternatives such as multifrequency bioimpedance assay (BIA) and skinfold thickness (SFT) measurements for assessing body fat in predialysis CKD...

Chronic kidney disease-mineral and bone disorder (CKD-MBD) is common in kidney transplant recipients (KTRs), where secondary hyperparathyroidism (HPTH) and post-transplantation bone disease (PTBD) are potential effectors of both graft and vascular aging. Reduced 25(OH)D levels are highly prevalent in KTRs. Experimental and clinical evidence support the direct involvement of deranged vitamin D metabolism in CKD-MBD among KTRs. This review analyzes the pathophysiology of vitamin D derangement in KTRs and its fall out on patient and graft outcome, highlighting the roles of both nutritional and active vitamin D compounds to treat PTBD, cardiovascular disease (CVD) and graft dysfunction...

Although malnutrition indicates an unfavorable prognosis in some clinical settings, the synergistic impact of nutritional state, renal dysfunction and left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) on cardiovascular events is unknown. Among 338 patients aged 40-80 years who underwent echocardiographic evaluation between 2003 and 2005, 161 patients who were followed for >7 years were recruited. Malnutrition was defined as a geriatric nutritional risk index (GNRI) of ⩽96. The mean patient age was 63.5±9.2 years; the mean estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) was 72...

BACKGROUND: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) leading to kidney failure and end stage renal disease (ESRD) is a common health problem associated with wasting syndrome characterized by inadequate nutrient intake and decrease tissue anabolism and/or catabolism. In CKD adipokines, especially leptin and adiponectin (ADPN), accumulate in serum due to reduced renal clearance. Although, rapidly growing, knowledge of adipocytokines is limited and much is still unknown of the altered adipocytokine pattern in patients with impaired renal function...

BACKGROUND: In the general population, the association between uninsurance and mortality is well established. We sought to evaluate the association of health insurance status with mortality among working-age participants with albuminuria in the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 1988-1994 (NHANES III). METHODS: We used data from non-elderly adult participants (18-64) of NHANES III (1988-1994), a nationally representative study of the US civilian, noninstitutionalized population, who provided information on insurance and who had albuminuria, defined as a urine albumin-to-creatinine ratio [UACR] ≥ 30 mg/g and their subsequent mortality to December 31, 2006...
