Nutritional Aspects of Hemofiltration

  • J. R. Mault
  • R. H. Bartlett


The metabolic management of renal failure patients requires special consideration due to the nature of the disease. Nutritional support must be designed to provide adequate energy and protein substrates without exacerbating protein catabolism. In addition, fluid restrictions may preclude administration of optimal therapy.
