Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

Malnutrition is not specific to any stage of end-stage renal disease (ESRD), but evidently it is present even before starting renal replacement therapy (RRT). Reports published by the modification of diet in renal disease (MDRD) Study indicate that early signs of malnutrition, such as reduction in body mass index (BMI), weight and anthropometric measurements, and notable decline in urinary biochemistry parameters, including urinary creatinine excretion, was observed in chronic renal failure (CRF) patients.
