Background and Aim: Growth retardation is still an important manifestation of children with chronic renal failure (CRF). The aim of this study is to evaluate the growth in relation to nutritional status in Egyptian children with CRF on hemodialysis.

Subjects and Methods: The study included 30 Egyptian children above the age of six years on regular haemodialysis at the Haemodialysis Unit of the Centre of Pediatric Nephrology and Transplantation of Cairo University. Anthropometry, biochemical parameters and dietary intake were measured. Anthropometric measurements were expressed as z - scores.

Results: Data shows that height was the most affected anthropometric parameter. Short stature in CRF is proportionate and body weight is less affected than height. Dietary analysis showed that 76.7 % of patients had recommended dietary allowance of calories. Height z-score showed a significant positive correlation with caloric intake. On the other hand, the protein intake showed a significant positive correlation with blood urea nitrogen and a significant negative correlation with serum bicarbonate.

Conclusions: Nutritional assessment is essential to the management of children with CRF. Anthropometry is a sensitive indicator of the nutritional status. The study recommends avoiding excessive protein intake to prevent metabolic acidosis and accumulation of toxic nitrogen waste products.

Determination of Selected Trace Elements in Dietary Supplements Containing Plant Materials

The need for analytical methods enabling determining trace metals concentration in herbal medicinal products and dietary supplements has increased in recent years due to the globalisation of international market and also due to the risk of using herbs contaminated by heavy metals. To this end, an analytical method was developed and validated for the accurate determination of trace elements (As, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Mn, Pb, Sr, Zn) in products in the form of tablets or capsules, herbal teas and their aqueous infusions. The validation of described procedure of digestion samples and determination metals by ICP-MS method, shows its usability in determination of trace elements in herbal products. Recovery percentage based on CRMs ranged from 90.1% to 110.7%, and the precision of the method was below 3%.

Out of all microelements determined, the highest concentration was found for Mn in herbal teas. The daily intake of Mn with infusions accounted for 53.3% and 126.4%, which corresponded to 41.7% and 98.9% of the AI values for adult women and men, respectively. The method was also used for quality control of the labelled level of chromium and zinc. In all analysed samples, the concentrations of cadmium and lead were below the EC maximum levels stipulated for Cd and Pb in dietary supplements.
