Malnutrition is an important problem in patients treated with long-term dialysis, and most dialysis patients have lower dietary energy and protein intake. This study was undertaken to examine whether orally administered Otsuka Nutrition Pharmaceutical (ONCE) dialyze formula (ODF) supplement would improve energy intake without mineral and electrolyte disturbances in patients with continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD).


The effects of ODF supplementation on nutrition markers including serum albumin and prealbumin concentrations and inflammatory stress in patients with chronic CAPD were evaluated. All patients received daily oral ODF supplements for 15 days. During follow-up, all patients were evaluated clinically and biochemically, and nutritional status was assessed.


Thirty patients with mean age 61.9±12.3 years and weekly Kt/V 2.2±0.4 were studied. The mean values for nutritional parameters included a body weight of 53.7±9.5 kg, a serum albumin level of 3.3±0.4 g/dL, a serum prealbumin level of 33.8±11.1 mg/dL, a dietary energy intake of 21.9±7.1 kcal/kg/day, and a dietary protein intake of 0.9±0.3 g/kg/day. After 15-day ODF treatment, these patients had significant dietary energy and protein, carbohydrate, fat, fiber, potassium, calcium, and magnesium intake from baseline (P<0.05). Furthermore, significant improvements were found in nutritional markers including body weight, blood urea nitrogen, and prealbumin levels, but no changes were observed in serum albumin and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein levels. At the end of follow-up, the frequency of patients with moderate malnutrition decreased from 24.2% to 18.2%, and no increased incidence was observed of hyperkalemia, hyperphosphatemia, and metabolic acidosis.


ODF supplementation ameliorates low dietary energy and nutrient intake as well as improves serum prealbumin and body weight in patients with long-term CAPD.
