SANCHEZ LAMOLDA, Maria de los Ángeles et al. Nursing Intervention: a key tool for improving the nutritional state in patients with chronic renal insufficiency. Rev Soc Esp Enferm Nefrol [online]. 2007, vol.10, n.4, pp.31-35. ISSN 1139-1375.

Patients with chronic renal insufficiency who are undergoing haemodialysis are subject to food restrictions. This, together with aging and unsuitable habits, leads to a significant risk of malnutrition. Our aim is to improve the nutritional state of the patients in our dialysis unit, through nursing intervention: Nutritional Advising of the Nursing Interventions Classification. A descriptive transversal study was carried out, in which we studied the population of our unit at a given time (anthropometric and analytical variables). We applied the Nutritional Advising intervention and carried out a comparative and correlational study before and after the intervention. We found a nutritional improvement in all variables except lymphocytes. The improvement was significant in the variables of BMI and albumin.

Keywords : Malnutrition; Haemodialysis; Nic; Nutritional advising.
