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 ...

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.

Phase N/A

Predicting Weight Gain and Weight Loss Associated With Overeating or Fasting

For obese individuals, losing weight and keeping it off are extremely difficult, whereas some other individuals are thin and report trouble gaining weight. In most weight loss and overfeeding studies there is a large variation in the amount of weight lost or gained, and it is not clear whether an ...

Dietary Treatment for Chronic Urticaria

A double blinded parallel randomized control study over 4 weeks will be conducted to assess the effectiveness of a histamine-restricted diet. Neither the subjects nor the medical investigator will know which diet is being prescribed. The study will only be conducted after ethical approval has been granted and with informed ...

The Fructose and Allulose Catalytic Effects (FACE) Trial

Diabetes remains one of the most important unmet prevention and treatment challenges. Despite the growing armamentarium of medications, which include six new classes of drugs since metformin was first approved in 1995 in the US, the combined prevalence of impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and diabetes continues to grow. Although oral ...

Phase N/A

Medical and Health Economic Benefit of Oral Nutritional Supplements (ONS) in Ambulant Patients

Study participants are assessed upon discharge from the hospital and again after 3 months. Upon discharge all patients receive nutrition counselling with special focus on an energy rich diet. Additionally, the intervention group receives ONS. The investigators hypothesize an improvement in functional limitations and health economic benefits due to the ...

Preoperative Nutritional Support in Malnutritional Cancer Patients

This is single arm study with historical comparison. The historical control group did not receiving nutritional support. In previous results show that about 25% complication rates. Complication rates are expected in the group receiving nutritional support is less than 10 % ( previous studies (NCCNCS-11-460)). For support group, preoperative nutritional ...

Phase

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, ...
