The kidney and the liver play a central role in protein metabolism. The major aim of the study was to evaluate, for the first time in Romania, the impact of intensive dietary counseling and personalised diets on serum albumin (SA) and others nutritional parameters, but also the relationship between albumin level, inflammation and nutritional status in a cohort of haemodialysis patients which associate or not chronic liver disease (CLD). We prospectively analysed the inflammatory status and malnutrition in 162 HD patients, mean age 56±13 years, from a single dialysis centre. At baseline we evaluated: a. calorie-protein intake using patient’s diet history with the help of 72 hrs recall method;b. nutritional status by anthropometric measures- post dialysis body weight (BW), body mass index (BMI), TSF (tricipital skinfold), MAC (mid-arm circumference), MAMC (mid-arm muscle circumference);c. modified subjective global assessment score (mSGA);d. biochemical tests: pre-dialysis serum albumin, serum creatinine, alkaline reserve, Kt/V and Protein C Reactive (CRP). The patients were followed-up for 6 months.
