OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to investigate sodium intake in a cohort of people with chronic kidney disease (CKD) Stage 3 in England to identify demographic characteristics of subgroups with high sodium intake and specific foods that contribute to excessive sodium intake. DESIGN AND METHODS Study subjects (N = 1,729) included CKD patients(More)
INTRODUCTION Adequate dietary phosphorus intake and the use of phosphorus binders are the main tools for treating hyperphosphatemia. Thus, its success depends essentially on the patient's ability to understand and adhere to the dietary plan and the use of phosphate binders. OBJECTIVE To evaluate hyperphosphatemic patients adherence and knowledge about(More)
This cross-sectional study aimed to investigate the prevalence of hyperhomocysteinemia, the determinants of plasma total homocysteine concentrations, and the relationship of total homocysteine with nutritional parameters in a sample of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and not yet on dialysis. The study was done with outpatients from the Nephrology(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS High sodium intake is associated with adverse cardiovascular and renal outcomes in people with chronic kidney disease (CKD), and simple methods to facilitate assessment of sodium intake are required. The objective of this study was to develop a new formula to estimate 24-hour urinary sodium (24hUNa) excretion from urinary Na concentration(More)
This paper describes the 30-year experience on nutritional management of non-dialysis dependent chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients in a public outpatient clinic located in the city of São Paulo, Brazil. A team of specialized dietitians in renal nutrition is responsible to provide individual dietary counseling for patients on stages 3 to 5 of CKD. Two(More)
INTRODUCTION Salt intake increases fluid intake and, consequently, blood pressure (BP) and interdialytic weight gain (IDWG), known as morbi-mortality risk factors for hemodialysis (HD) patients. OBJECTIVE Evaluate salt intake and food sources, as well as its relationship with demographics, clinical and nutritional parameters. METHODS Cross-sectional(More)
BACKGROUND Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a growing global concern and often reversible. Saliva urea nitrogen (SUN) measured by a dipstick may allow rapid diagnosis. We studied longitudinal agreement between SUN and blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and the diagnostic performance of both. METHODS Agreement between SUN and BUN and diagnostic performance to diagnose(More)
INTRODUCTION Studies have shown that interdialytic weight gain (IDWG) of hemodialysis (HD) patients is influenced by many factors, a high IDWG negatively affecting the blood pressure (BP) of this population. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the relation of clinical, demographic and nutritional factors and the IDWG of HD patients. METHODS Cross-sectional study of(More)
Decreasing sodium intake has been associated with improvements in blood pressure (BP) and proteinuria, two important risk factors for CVD and chronic kidney disease (CKD) progression. We aimed to investigate the role of sodium intake by examining the effect of changes in sodium intake over 1 year on BP and proteinuria in people with early stage CKD. From(More)
