A prospective and longitudinal study was carried out in 77 patients with renal chronic disease dependent on hemodialysis, attended in the Nephrology Service of "Dr. Juan Bruno Zayas Alfonso" Teaching General Hospital of Santiago de Cuba, from October, 2007 to April, 2008, in order to evaluate their nutritional state according to Chang's method and to provide nutritional support with national production supplements (nutrial 1-2) and hyperproteic DNA. Results showed an improvement in nutritional risk index and immunologic and anthropometric parameters were modified, contributing to the increase of the life quality in patients of the series.

Keywords : renal chronic failure; hemodialysis; malnutrition; nutritional support; nutritional risk; quality of life; anthropometric parameter; immunologic parameters; nephrology service; secondary attention of health.
