The Influence of Dietary Phosphorus Education Program on Nutritional Status and Serum Phosphate Level Among Hemodialysis Patient
- The criteria of subjects are undergoing regular hemodialysis for longer than 3 months
at baseline. Subjects' age range is from 20 to 85 years old. Their baseline serum
albumin < 4.0 mg/dL, or serum phosphate > 5.0 mg/dL, are eligible for inclusion.
Subjects will be enrolled into this trial after signed informed consent. We expect to
recruit 60 subjects
- Patients will be excluded if they had liver cirrhosis, malignant tumor, can't finish
all education sessions and/or can't complete dietary records monthly.
