This study objective was to describe the distribution of food consumption markers in Brazil per sociodemographic characteristics and its evolution from 2013 to 2019. Healthy food consumption markers (regular consumption of beans, fruits, vegetables, and fish, recommended consumption of red meat, and never replacing meals with snacks) and unhealthy...

Aim: Sarcopenia and malnutrition are highly prevalent in older adults undergoing hemodialysis (HD) and are associated with negative outcomes. This study aimed to evaluate the role of sarcopenia and malnutrition combined on the nutritional markers, quality of life, and survival in a cohort of older adults on chronic HD. Methods: This was an observat...

Background: We analyzed the dietary patterns of Brazilian individuals with a self-declared diagnosis of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and explored associations with treatment modality. Methods: Weekly consumption of 14 food intake markers was analyzed in 839 individuals from the 2013 Brazil National Health Survey with a self-declared diagnosis of...

Objective: To describe the food consumption of individuals with chronic kidney disease (CKD) per sociodemographic and geographical characteristics and CKD treatment. In addition, we compared the food consumption of individuals with and without CKD. Methods: Cross-sectional study using data from the National Health Survey (Brazil 2013) that inclu...
Article
Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate nutritional status in older patients undergoing maintenance hemodialysis (MHD) to determine the prevalence of nutritional markers indicating protein-energy wasting (PEW) as assessed by subjective global assessment (SGA) and other methods, and to explore which nutritional markers can best predict...
Article
Objective: This study aimed to assess whether diminished muscle mass, diminished muscle strength, or both conditions (sarcopenia) are associated with worse nutritional status, poor quality of life (QoL), and hard outcomes, such as hospitalization and mortality, in elderly patients on maintenance hemodialysis (MHD). Design and subjects: This is a...
Article
Objectives: The multiple dietary restrictions recommended to patients on hemodialysis (HD), coupled with conditions imposed by aging, may lead to poor dietary quality in these patients. The aim of this study was to investigate the dietary quality and consumption of ultraprocessed food by elderly patients on HD and those without chronic kidney dise...
Article
Background & aims: Studies assessing the performance of 7-point subjective global assessment (7p-SGA) and malnutrition inflammation score (MIS) to assess longitudinal changes in nutritional status are lacking. Thus, we aimed to investigate whether longitudinal changes in 7p-SGA and MIS were associated with changes in objective parameters of nutrit...
Article
Objectives: Diagnosing obesity by body mass index (BMI) may not be reliable in elderly individuals due to the changes in body composition. We aimed to analyze the accuracy of BMI thresholds by World Health Organization (WHO) and Nutrition Screening Initiative (NSI) to diagnose obesity in elderly patients on hemodialysis (HD). Design: Multicenter...
Article
To assess the performance of subjective global assessment (SGA), malnutrition inflammation score (MIS), and mini nutritional assessment short-form (MNA-SF) in older adults on hemodialysis (HD) by evaluating their concurrent and predictive validity. An observational and prospective study including older adults on HD. Six dialysis units. We assessed...
Article
To investigate whether the dietary intake of elderly patients on hemodialysis (HD) is lower than that of elderly individuals with normal renal function. In addition, we also assessed whether the dietary intake of elderly on HD is lower on the dialysis day (DD) than on nondialysis days (non-DD). A cross-sectional and observational study including el...
