Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent of maintenance patients with at least three risk factors of metabolic syndrome [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Enrollment: 108
Study Start Date: August 2010
Study Completion Date: December 2010
Primary Completion Date: December 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:
Risk factors for metabolic syndrome will be collected for each consented patient. They include elevated serum triglycerides, reduced HDL cholesterol, hypertension, elevated fasting blood sugar concentration and abdominal obesity. The investigator will measure waist circumference of each consented patient in a secure area according to standardized procedures. The other data is available from the patient's medical record.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
All study subjects are on maintenance hemodialysis

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients undergoing maintenance hemodialysis equal to or greater than 3 months
  • Patient at lest 18 years of age
  • Availability of all data in the medical record for classification of the metabolic syndrome, including serum triglycerides, serum HDL-cholesterol, systolic BP and diastolic BP, and serum glucose

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients unwilling or unable to give informed consent to participate
  • Patients with a history of thyroid disease
  • Patients unable to stand upright
