Fifteen patients with chronic renal failure, stabilized on twice weekly hemodialysis, received oral essential amino acid therapy (6.3 g/day) over a period of 12.3 months. Clinical and laboratory improvement was observed with respect to body weight, tricep skin fold thickness, mid upper arm circumference serum albumin, C3 and plasma essential amino acids. Serum triglyceride was decreased. The patients felt well with increased appetite. Essential amino acids were well tolerated without side effects.
