  • Amino acids profile after oral nutritional supplementation in hemodialysis patients with protein energy wasting

    2 monthes ago - By Nutrition JRNL

    Some studies have shown abnormalities of nutritional status in patients with chronic kidney disease. Protein energy wasting is highly prevalent in haemodialysis patients. The underlying mechanisms of PEW are complex, but metabolic derangements related both to exaggerated protein degradation and decreased protein synthesis are of utmost importance. Homeostasis between protein synthesis and degradation depends on protein intake and utilization. Accelerated protein degradation, without a sufficient protein supply, may lead to skeletal muscle wasting (9).
