Dietary pattern may not impact mortality for patients on hemodialysis
After conducting a prospective cohort study, researchers found “no evidence” of an association between fruit- and vegetable-based or Western dietary patterns on mortality in adults receiving hemodialysis. “Dietary patterns, such as the Mediterranean and Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension diets, are associated with a 10% to 30% reduction in cardiovascular events and mortality,” Valeria M. Saglimbene, MScMed, of the Sydney School of Public Health at the University of Sydney in Australia, said.
