Malnutrition is common in patients with chronic renal failure (CRF), and its prevalence before the initiation of dialysis is poorly characterized in these patients in developing countries. There is a paucity of data on the quantification of malnutrition and inflammation in undialyzed patients of CRF from India. Besides the medical condition like anorexia, nausea, vomiting, uraemia etc there are some vegetarian diet pattern and religious factors which abstinence the patients from consuming high biological value protein. This enhances the gap between daily nutrition requirement and fulfilment of the same. Here the oral nutritional supplement appears to be a sustainable effort toward addressing malnutrition in maintenance haemodialysis patients.

Keywords: CRF, Dialysis, Malnutrition, Oral nutrition supplements, Albumin.
