This book is intended to study and understand some important metabolic aspects in ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease) patients undergoing haemodialysis. Patients chosen specifically were non- diabetics in order to see that if still any derangements occur in biochemical parameters especially, HbA1c (glycated hemoglobin) and others like plasma glucose levels, lipid profile etc. Further, the outcomes can be extrapolated to a larger population by increasing the sample size and also by considering estimated GFR (Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate), as an additional parameter. This would be the mainstay of our forthcoming research in this area.
