Fiber Intake in an End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Population Followed Over 2 Years
Our research involves the detailed description of the content of the diet of x dialysis patients.
For our purpose we used a newly developed "food frequency questionnaire". This is the first validated questionnaire specific for dialysis patients and we were the first to use it.
Our special focus was the fiber content in the diet of our patient. Our thesis that they are way below the recommended guidelines for fiber intake was verified. Our follow will evaluate the effect of such at diet, mosTLy cardiovascular.

First describe the diet of a cohort of dialysis patients with focus on fiber content.
Other: Increasing total fiber intake in patient's diet
Second counsel patients biweekly about their compliance with a high fiber diet, target being 25 to 30 gm of fiber a day.Follow them for a period of 2 years and assess if their is any significant decrease in their cardiovascular events and profile, in addition to assessing the effect of high fiber on kalemia.
