Shikha Kumari, Shrish Chand Singh Dikshit

Chronic renal failure (CRF) is characterized by progressive deterioration of kidney function, which develops eventually into an End stage of chronic renal failure (CKF). It is a negative consequence of metabolic syndrome. The present study was conducted in Military Hospital and Nazareth Hospital, Allahabad. The present study was intended to identify the prevalence and nutritional assessment of metabolic syndrome associated CRF. Total 150 subjects were screened for renal function test & were taken for the present study. A pretested schedule was prepared for the survey. Schedule contains the information regarding demographic profile (age, education, family type and work status), clinical, anthropometric and dietary assessment. Appropriate statistical methods were used for data analysis. In this study, 150 (81 males and 69 females) subjects diagnosed CKD were sampled purposively. It was found that 44 percent subjects had hypertriglyceridemia, 71.33 percent had low HDL, 76 percent were hypertensive, 48 percent had hyperglycemia respectively. Metabolic syndrome was present in 55 (36.66%) subjects (CI 3142%). Its prevalence was 32.09 percent in men and 42.02% in women. About 13.33 percent subjects were obese followed by 86.66 percent normal subjects. The mean score intake of calories, carbohydrates, protein and fat were lower than the RDA.
