Results: Serum fetuin A level in hemodialysis patients (330.5 ± 171.2 mg/L) was significantly lower as compared to control group (382.9 ± 138.5 mg/L) (p=0.001). Significant negative correlation between fetuin-A and C-reactive protein (CRP) (r=-0.28, p<0.0001) was found.

The nutrition of CAPD patients was assessed by the level of serum albumin, protein catabolic rate (PCR) and arm circumference ratio (ACratio). PCR was-calculated from the following formula described by Teehan et al (13).

How to Measure Residual Renal Function in Patients on

Function in Patients on Maintenance Hemodialysis Susie Q. Lew Many patients with end-stage renal disease who are on maintenance hemodialysis still have significant residual renal function. Exogenous markers such as inulin and radionuclides, and endogenous markers such as creatinine and urea are commonly used to quantify this residual function.

Protein catabolic rate in maintenance dialysis

Dec 30, 2009 Hemodialysis The PCR in patients treated with hemodialysis is routinely calculated by various urea kinetic modeling software programs that can be purchased independently or are supplied by the manufacturers of some dialysis machines. If a computer program is not available, the following simple formulas will give a good estimate of the nPCR.

Then the protein catabolic rate (PCR) was calculated from the blood urea nitrogen (BUN) levels before and after dialysis. The ratio of PCR to protein content of the provided food [12] was computed as the percentage of food eaten.
