Patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) die in the absence of renal replacement therapy (RRT). In developing countries RRT is not uniformly available and treatment often relies on conservative management and intermittent peritoneal dialysis (IPD). This study investigates the possibility of using acacia gum supplementation to improve the quality of life and provide children with ESRD with a dialysis-free period. Three patients referred to our hospital with ESRD during a 3-month period were… 
The use of acacia gum in end stage renal failure.
TLDR
A new model for the management of end-stage renal failure (ESRF) associated with longest period of dialysis freedom (4-year) achieved with this novel form of renal replacement therapy (RRT) is described.
The use of acacia gum in end stage renal failure.
TLDR
A new model for the management of end-stage renal failure (ESRF) associated with longest period of dialysis freedom (4-year) achieved with this novel form of renal replacement therapy (RRT) is described.
Dialysis Free Protocol for Some End Stage Renal Disease Patients (Khosroshahi Protocol)
TLDR
A proposed dialysis free protocol consisting of a low protein diet, uremic toxin adsorbents, and prebiotics for selective ESRD patients who had dialysis access constraints or did not agree placement of hemodialysis vascular access or peritoneal dialysis catheter reduces the need for dialysis treatment at least transiently.
Dietary Dialysis with Acacia Gum: Intestinal Dialysis Technology
TLDR
The treatment of nine patients with chronic renal failure associated with symptomatic uremia with intestinal dialysis experienced conspicuous lowering of urea and creatinine and improvement in the general wellbeing.
Six-year dialysis freedom in end-stage renal disease
TLDR
It was possible to address ESRD in this particular patient as a disease process that can be treated by totally different medical treatment approaches without the use of either chronic dialysis or transplant.
Continuous renal replacement in the developing world: is there any alternative?
TLDR
This is the first study reporting the use of acacia gum in adults with symptomatic uremia, and the first reporting hemodialysis freedom in patients with end-stage renal failure.
The effects of dietary supplementation with Gum arabicon blood pressure and renal function in subjects with Type 2diabetes mellitus
TLDR
It is suggested that Gum arabic has beneficial effects on blood pressure but no immediate beneficial effect on renal function in either diabetic cohort.
Gum Arabic Reduces C-Reactive Protein in Chronic Kidney Disease Patients without Affecting Urea or Indoxyl Sulfate Levels
Introduction Gum Arabic (GA) is a complex polysaccharide with proven prebiotic properties and potentially beneficial systemic effects. Methods We randomly allocated 36 chronic kidney disease (CKD)
Effects of Gum Arabic in rats with adenine-induced chronic renal failure
Gum Arabic (GA [Acacia senegal]) is reputed, in Arabian medicinal practices, to be useful in treating patients with chronic renal failure (CRF), albeit without strong scientific evidence. We have

Low protein diets and outcome of renal patients.
TLDR
Meta-analyses confirm that LPD can effectively postpone renal replacement therapy by moderately slowing the decline in GFR and also by substantially delaying the onset of uremic symptoms, and their beneficial effect seems to be greater in diabetic renal disease.
Protein restriction in the pre-end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patient: who, when, how, and the effect on subsequent ESRD outcome.
TLDR
Evidence indicates that both nephrotic and nonnephrotic chronic renal failure patients can activate normal homeostatic responses allowing them to maintain lean body mass when dietary protein intake is restricted, and it is a compelling argument to institute dietary therapy to minimize complications of renal failure while maintaining nutritional status.
Treatment of chronic uremic patients with protein-poor diet and oral supply of essential amino acids. I. Nitrogen balance studies.
TLDR
The results show that it is possible with the new regimen to attain positive nitrogen balance or nitrogen equilibrium in severely uremic patients without excessive accumulation of urea in the body fluids.
Multicentre randomized study on the effect of a low-protein diet on the progression of renal failure in childhood: one-year results. European Study Group for Nutritional Treatment of Chronic Renal Failure in Childhood.
TLDR
Progression of renal disease during the adaptation period proved to be a significant prognostic factor and stratification for two groups according to the progression of renal failure ('non Progressive' and 'progressive' diseases) was used in the analyses.
Long-term effects of essential amino acids supplementation in patients on regular dialysis treatment.
TLDR
Long-term administration of essential amino acids (EAA) and histidine at the end of each hemodialysis improved the serum concentrations of the investigated proteins, whereas the serum concentration of inorganic phosphorus decreased slightly.
Mechanism of oral absorbent AST-120 in lipid abnormalities in experimental uremic rats.
TLDR
The results suggest that AST may improve plasma lipid abnormalities by binding to bile acids in the intestinal lumen and preventing their reabsorption and inhibiting the reduction of LPL activity in experimental uremic rats.
Oral carbonaceous absorbent modifies renal function of renal ablation model without affecting plasma renin-angiotensin system or protein intake
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the renal protective effects of the oral absorbent AST-120 may be, at least in part, due to its lowering phosphate absorption from the diet as a phosphorus binder.
Supplementation with gum arabic fiber increases fecal nitrogen excretion and lowers serum urea nitrogen concentration in chronic renal failure patients consuming a low-protein diet.
TLDR
Fecal bacterial mass and fecal nitrogen content were significantly increased during supplementation with gum arabic compared with the baseline LPD or supplementation with pectin, and serum urea nitrogen was significantly decreased.

TLDR
The results fail to support the view that degradation of urea in the gut promotes N conservation in uremic subjects maintained on low protein diets.
