Stratton, R. et al. Multinutrient Oral Supplements and Tube Feeding in Maintenance Dialysis: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

Multinutrient oral supplements and tube feeding in maintenance dialysis: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

This systematic review looks at potential benefits of nutrition support (oral or tube feeding) in patients with chronic kidney disease. The study suggests that enteral multinutrient support significantly increases serum albumin concentrations and improves total dietary intake which may benefit clinical outcome, especially in malnourished patients.
