ABSTRACT
The aim of this study was to asses the influence of a conventional low-protein diet and diet supplemented with Ketosteril® on growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor-1 in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Dietary intake of selected nutrients, anthropometric, hormonal and metabolic parameters were analysed before and after 6-month dietary treatment. We conclude that in CKD the response of the GH and IGF-I axis to a low protein diet can be determined by the quality of proteins and that animal protein seems to promote an increase in GH.
