Phosphorus and Protein – Getting The Balance Right

An important part of tackling hyperphosphataemia in chronic kidney disease patients is restricting phosphorus intake. However, as high-phosphorus foods are often good sources of protein, a restriction can lead to poor protein intake. In an article published in the Journal of Renal Nutrition, David St-Jules and colleagues examine the collinearity…

The impact of organic and inorganic phosphate consumption on serum phosphorus concentration

Abnormal serum phosphorus levels are associated with significant consequences, including cardiovascular events and all-cause mortality in both healthy subjects and patients with chronic kidney disease. A recent study by Moore et al[1] investigated the association between dietary sources of organic and inorganic phosphate with serum phosphorus levels in a large…

ASN 2014 (Part 6): Controlling Phosphorus Levels in CKD Patients by Using a Practical, 70% Plant-Based Diet

In this video, recorded at the 2014 Kidney Week Congress, Dr Ranjani Moorthi discusses results from an interventional trial investigating whether 4 weeks on a 70% plant-based diet would reduce urinary phosphorus (P) and improve markers of mineral metabolism, without adverse biochemical changes or loss of muscle mass. The study…

Might inconsistencies in associations between serum phosphorus levels and mortality risk in CKD be partly explained by fasting status?

Variations in the approach to measuring serum phosphorus may partly explain the heterogeneity in results of previous studies investigating the association between serum phosphorus and mortality, according to data presented at ASN Kidney Week 2013. Alex Chang and Morgan Grams of Johns Hopkins University analyzed data from the NHANES III…

Phosphate homeostasis in CKD – research recommendations from an NKF-sponsored symposium

A recently-published report by Block et al. on a 2012 NKF-sponsored scientific symposium  provides a comprehensive review [1] of many issues associated with phosphate homeostasis in non-dialysis CKD. The report summarizes the discussions among 45 international experts on three broad topics: The role of diet and nutrition, Normal phosphate regulation and…

Overcoming barriers to labeling and restriction of phosphate additives in food

In our previous COMPACT article we reviewed a study that analysed the high prevalence of phosphorus additives in best-selling groceries.[1] Several commentators have drawn conclusions from this and other related studies, suggesting that phosphate content in food should be clearly labelled and that regulation of phosphate-based could be considered in…

The high prevalence of phosphorus additives in best-selling groceries

Earlier this year, in our series on nutrition, we highlighted the difficulties associated with determining the phosphorus content of food and drink products, as well as the challenges of avoiding inorganic phosphate additives that are readily absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract. A recent paper by León et al, published in…

Possible interventions with oral nutritional supplements (Part IV)

Introduction In the previous article we discussed the challenge of implementing renal diets that adequately manage levels of both phosphorus and protein intake. In this article we discuss the possible use of oral nutritional supplements to assist with this challenge. Dialysis patients have a lower intake of dietary protein The…
