Background: Malnutrition is a common problem in patient with renal failure. There are many risk factors to develop Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), like diabetes, hypertension and obesity.

Objective: To assess the nutritional state of hemodialysis patient in Al Madinah Al-Munawarah.

Subjects & Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted which included 62 female hemodialysis patients, attending at hemodialysis center of King Fahd Hospital and other private centers. Interview questionnaire was used to collect socio-demographic, patient status, medical and dietary history. Anthropometric measurements included weight, height, ideal body weight, body mass index, waist circumference and use of body fat analyzer. Also, collecting lab result such as serum phosphorus, calcium, total protein, albumin and hemoglobin from patient's files.

Result: We come out with several findings: 48.4% of the sample has hypophosphatemia, 77.4% hypocalcemia and 87.1% mild anemia. For BMI (body mass index): 59.7% of the sample were having normal BMI, followed by 14.5% overweight, 11.2% obese, and 14.5% underweight. When comparing the sample intake of food for 2 days with the RDI (Reference Dietary Intake) we found out that 75.8% and 71% of the sample were having intake under the recommendation from energy and protein, the same were for calcium, phosphate, total iron, potassium, zinc, magnesium and vitamin D; while vitamin A and folic acid were above RDI intake in most of the sample.

Conclusion: The study showed that most respondents consume energy, protein and nutrients less than the RDI.

Objective: Nutritional and physiological assessment for mental retarded females aged 10-13 and 14-18 years old lived in 3 disability centers in Cairo.

Subjects & Methods: This descriptive cross sectional study was conducted at Shalan Psychology Center, Psychology Medical Hospital and Al Shourok Specialist Hospital in Cairo. The study included 70 females of which 31 of 10-
13 years old and 39 of 14-18 years old. Questionnaire was developed including general information, Intelligence Quotient (IQ), 24 h dietary recall and diet history. Anthropometric measurement including body weight, height and
Body Mass Index (BMI) were done. Lipid profile, acetylcholine, blood gases and the enzymes cholinesterase and choline acetylase were measured.

Results: The study showed prevalence of malnutrition and metabolic abnormalities in mentally retarded females especially in 14-18 years old group. Energy, fat, potassium, zinc, phosphorus, iodine, iron, calcium, vitamin C and
D intake were under the recommended values. The prevalence of obesity is enhanced by age despite of nutritional deficiency may be because of decreased gastrointestinal disorder and decreasing consumption of carbohydrates and
poor nutritional knowledge of mothers and sedentary life style for resident.

Conclusion: The prevalence of malnutrition and metabolic disorders are high among mentally retarded females. Nutrition care should be provided in association with multidimensional care, including medical, physical and
preventive strategies for amelioration of mental retardation disorders in females.
