An Approach to the appropriate dosage of essential amino acids in the treatment of chronic renal failure
- 12 Downloads
110 cases of chronic renal failure (CRF) were randomly divided into two groups (I and II). No significant differences in renal function between the two groups were found before treatment. All patients were put on a low protein, low phosphorus and high caloric diet. Group I was treated with EAA in a routine dose while group II was given the same EAA in a much smaller dosage. The therapeutic effects observed in group II proved to be much better than in group I in almost all aspects surveyed (P< 0.001), including relief of symptoms, fall in Scr and BUN concentrations, favourable changes in amino acid profile, etc.
