In contrast to the adult population, little is known regarding health-related quality of life and exercise tolerance in children with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) undergoing chronic intermittent hemodialysis. We designed a pilot study to investigate whether research into this area is indicated. The aim of this study was to describe the motor skills,(More)
The use of recombinant human erythropoietin (rhEPO) has greatly facilitated the treatment of anemia in children with chronic renal failure, but is expensive. Several reports on adult patients have shown that supplementation with l-carnitine can decrease the requirement for rhEPO. The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of oral(More)
The use of the online urea monitor has not been validated in children on hemodialysis. We compared online measured Kt/V(urea) and protein catabolic rate (PCR) with single- and double-pool Daugirdas formula (DF and eDF) based Kt/V(urea) and with protein intake derived from dietary records (DPI). In 8 children aged 8–18 years, 26 measurements were performed(More)
CNF is a _~rec~-~ively inherited and usually fatal disorder in whiQh heavy proteinuria and ne~hrotic syndrome are present from birth or early infancy. Previous studies suggested that a decreased conoeantration of heparan sulfate protecglycan (HSPG) in the GHM might cause an abnormal glcmerular permeability in congenital nephrotic syndrcme. We analysed the(More)
