Found (20) clinical trials

Researchers at the University of Kentucky are inviting you to participate in a study investigating the changes in fat tissue in response to seasons and following a brief exposure to cold. This process has been called "browning" of fat and may protect people from obesity/ The study will involve blood ...

Phase N/A

This study seeks to determine if premature infants receiving an exclusive Human Milk-based diet with the addition of a Human Milk-derived cream caloric supplement will have a shorter length of initial hospital stay compared to infants receiving the standard regimen of an exclusive Human Milk-based diet.

Phase N/A

The Impact of a High Protein Diet on Substrate Oxidation and Energy Metabolism

The aim of this study is to investigate the impact of a high protein diet (achieved through the use of a high protein supplement) versus standard diet on substrate oxidation and energy expenditure using a state-of-the-art live-in whole body calorimetry unit (WBCU). This study will be an acute randomized, controlled, ...

Phase N/A

Environmental Exposure to Lead and Its Health Effects on Patients With Maintenance Hemodialysis

One thousand patients with LHD who have no history of exposure to lead will be observed for 18 months. Blood lead level(BLL), biochemical data, hemoglobin, albumin, Cr, high sensitivity C-reactive protein (HsCRP), and blood cell counts are assessed at baseline. The morbidity and mortality are recorded in detail. Then, one ...

High Energy High Protein Peptide Feed Study

Malnutrition or "undernutrition" in adults (≥18 years of age) is the deficiency of nutrients (energy, protein and micronutrients) which causes adverse effects on bodily composition, clinical and functional outcomes. Malnutrition can occur as a result of a number of factors including inadequate calorie intake, impaired nutrient absorption (malabsorption/maldigestion) or increased ...

Pharmacist-led Therapeutic Nutritional Intervention in Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes represents a significant burden to both the individual and our healthcare system. Individuals with type 2 diabetes are typically prescribed one or more glucose-lowering medications, many of which have undesirable side effects (e.g., nausea, risk of cardiovascular complications, weight gain) and cost our healthcare system a lot ...

Phase N/A

The Nutritional Health for the Elderly Reference Centre Study (NHERC Study)

This is a cross-sectional study. Measurements will be taken at baseline for elderly with normal nutrition (n = 400) and elderly who are at risk of under nutrition (n = 800).. These measurements will be used to examine factors influencing nutritional status and to create a "reference" database for anthropometric ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Malnutrition on the Prognosis in Hemodialysis Patients

Malnutrition is known to affect their prognosis in hemodialysis patients. Furthermore, recent studies indicate that malnutrition is associated with inflammation and atherosclerosis in these patients. In this study we examine the effect of malnutrition and/or inflammation on atherosclerosis and 5-year survival rate in 600 hemodialysis patients.

Phase N/A

Nutritional Deficiencies in the Bariatric Patients

Although morbidly obese subjects have larger than regular caloric intake, there is evidence that they suffer from nutritional deficiencies at a higher rate than the general population, probably because they eat mostly "unhealthy food."

Phase N/A

Impact of Providing High Protein Bar to Dialysis Patients With Low Serum Albumin

This study is to evaluate the impact of providing high protein supplementation in the form of a medical food bar containing 20grams of protein eath to hypoalbuminemic dialysis patients.
