there is a close relationship between malnutrition and patients with chronic kidney disease undergoing hemodialysis treatment.


to determine the frequency of malnutrition in patients with hemodialysis chronic kidney disease of the Regional Hospital of Coronel Oviedo.


observational descriptive cross-sectional study with non-probabilistic sampling. All hemodialysis patients selected from the nephrology department of the Regional Hospital of Coronel Oviedo during the month of September of the year 2019 which in total were 59 patients.


the frequency of malnutrition was 32% relating the current dry weight with the ideal weight of each of the patients. Using BMI, 45.8% had normal nutritional status, 28.8% correspond to overweight. The 3.4% presented malnutrition. Serum albumin was below 3.5 g / dl in 27.1%.


this study shows that the frequency of malnutrition in hemodialysis patients is in a fairly wide modified range of the parameters used. The frequency varies with each parameter used and the result is more reliable if different parameters are used.
