Malnutrition may worsen patient outcome by aggravating existing inflammation and heart failure, accelerating atherosclerosis and increasing susceptibility to infection. Available data demonstrate that chronic inflammation, a non-traditional risk factor which is observed commonly in uremic patients, play a key role in the genesis of both malnutrition and CVD in ESRD. Moreover, inflammation is associated… CONTINUE READING
