Title:Serum Albumin and Nutritional Status of Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease: A Hospital-Based Study
Author(s):Fabusoro, Olufemi K.
Subject(s):nutritional status
serum albumin
chronic kidney disease
Abstract:• Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) often suffer from malnutrition and protein-energy wasting (PEW) resulting in poor nutritional status which is a powerful predictor of mortality. There is a dearth of information on the nutritional status of patients with chronic kidney disease in Ibadan, Nigeria. • This study is a cross sectional study. A total of 32 consenting in-patients were assessed. The mean value of serum albumin and creatinine were 2.88±0.5 g/dL and 11.93±7.78 mg/dL respectively. The BMI of the male and female patients in this study were 22.29± kg/ m2 and 23.41 kg/m2 respectively while Mid-Upper Arm Fat Area (AFA) for the male and the female patients were 7.04±2.12 cm2 and 11.78±10.02 cm2 respectively. The protein and energy intake for the patients were also low compared to standard values. • It is important to maintain nutritional status in CKD population.
