Metabolic and nutritional derangements are prominent features of the uremic syndrome. Recent evidence suggest that several large-molecular-weight molecules that often are elevated in uremia, such as leptin, ghrelin, and proinflammatory cytokines, may have nutritional impact in this patient group. On the basis of present knowledge, these compounds could be… CONTINUE READING
