Abstract
A study was conducted for assessment of nutritional status of the patients undergoing haemodialysis (using SGA) and effectiveness of nutritional counselling on the knowledge of dietary practices to be adopted during haemodialysis. A total of 100 subjects undergoing maintenance haemodialysis were enrolled in the study. Anthropometric measurements and biochemical parameters are assessed under nutrition status. Dietary information was obtained using 24hr dietary recall along with food frequency. The results indicated that with increasing age, prevalence of CKD was more (42%) and it was more in males (63%) than in females (37%). According to SGA it was found that 63% were well nourished and 37% were mild-moderately malnourished. The results indicated a significant variance (p<0.05) in the knowledge aspect of experimental group (n=50) from pre to post counselling session. It was also observed that nutritional knowledge of experimental group differed significantly (p<0.05) with that of control group but the knowledge on fluid restrictions was observed in the sample irrespective of nutritional counselling. Thus, it was concluded from the study that nutritional counselling can enhance patient’s knowledge about wide food choices and empower them to lead a healthy life style.
