This study aimed to identify the factors capable of mortality prediction in patients on hemodialysis, using a prospective cohort with three years of follow-up. We hypothesized that lack of clinical-metabolic control, impairment of nutritional status, and inadequate food consumption are risk factors for mortality in this population. This is a longitudinal study on a non-probabilistic sample of 85 adults and elderly patients undergoing hemodialysis, aged ≥ 18 years (66.0% male, 61.6±13.7 years). D...

Abstract Background Evidence shows potential reduction in oxidative stress after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. However, this outcome can vary, with postsurgery time, type of markers significantly altered, and possible relation with cardiometabolic risk markers, thus indicating the need for more studies. Objective To evaluate changes in oxidative stress and its relation with cardiometabolic risk markers in Roux-en-Y gastric bypass patients after 3 and 12 months postsurgery. Setting Federal University...
