Protein-energy malnutrition among the ESRD patients on maintenance haemodialysis in Latvia

, : Protein-energy malnutrition among the ESRD patients on maintenance haemodialysis in Latvia. Proceedings of the Latvian Academy of Sciences Section B Natural Exact and Applied Sciences 58(5-6): 182-190

The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence of protein and energy malnutrition (PEM) in the largest haemodialysis unit in Latvia using serum albumin concentration and Subjective Global Assessment (SGA) as the PEM evaluation tools, as well as to determine the risk factors for PEM. We studied 44 patients (23 males, 21 females, mean age 52.6 +/- 13.9 years). Of the patients, 38.6% had a low serum albumin concentration.
