Lack of correlation between calcium intake and serum calcium levels in stable haemodialysis subjects.Byrne, Fiona N; Kinsella, Sinead; Murnaghan, Dermot J; Kiely, Mairead; Eustace, Joseph A; Department of Nutrition and Dietetics, Cork University Hospital, Cork, Ireland. (Karger, 2009)The relationship between calcium intake and serum calcium level in hemodialysis patients is poorly understood.
Pilot Randomized Controlled Trial of a Standard Versus a Modified Low-Phosphorus Diet in Hemodialysis Patients.Byrne, Fiona N; Gillman, Barbara A; Kiely, Mairead; Palmer, Brendan; Shiely, Frances; Kearney, Patricia M; Earlie, Joyce; Bowles, Maria B; Keohane, Fiona M; Connolly, Pauline P; et al. (Elsevier, 2020-08-18)There was no significant difference in the change in serum phosphate between the standard and modified diets. Although total dietary phosphorus intake was similar, phytate-bound phosphorus, found in pulses, nuts, and whole grains, was significantly higher in the modified diet (P < 0.001). Dietary fiber intake was also significantly higher (P < 0.003), as was the percentage of patients reporting an increase in bowel movements while following the modified diet (P = 0.008). There was no significant difference in the change in serum potassium or in reported protein intake between the 2 diets. Both diets were similarly well tolerated.
