New Handbook for Patients at Home / Avoid Malnutrition – Maintain Quality of Life

New Eisenberg – The new Handbook for Patients of your House tackles the topic of malnutrition, which is important for dialysis patients: basic knowledge of a balanced diet, important information on avoiding the dangers of malnutrition, typical calculations of your energy requirements, and tips on how to stimulate your appetite.

Hemodialysis removes metabolic products, such as urea, from the body. Valuable nutrients can sometimes be lost as a result. This is why dialysis patients have a higher risk of developing malnutrition, technically known as malnutrition. With the right combination of meals and skillful selection of food, complications can be avoided and vitality can be gained in everyday life. KFH now has information relevant to the topic of malnutrition in a new brochure entitled Avoiding Malnutrition. Live Lively. Professional advice was provided by nephrologist and diabetes specialist Dr. Bertil Oser of KFH Kidney Center in Bernkastel-Kues and Dietitian Consultant Ruth Kaur.

Malnutrition affects the quality of life: the nutrients absorbed provide the body with energy, vitamins and minerals. Proteins, fats and carbohydrates are important so that the body’s muscle reserves are not broken down,” explains Usser. In the event of insufficient supply, a dangerous downward spiral can develop: one will feel limp and without driving. “In general, eating regularly is essential. So I advise you to eat a lot of small snacks between meals,” Kaur adds.
