Materials and Methods: A total of 60 subjects were enrolled in the study (48 males and 12 females) in two groups; the first group taken proper medication and dialysis therapy and the second one additional diet counseling we suggested soy and paneer-like high biological protein. Different biochemical parameters such as blood urea, creatinine, and albumin along with the amount of calorie and protein intake were compared pre-nutritional counseling and post-nutritional counseling and protein dietary recommendation for 60 days during ongoing HD. Results: Short-term suggestion resulted in a significant statistically difference in the biochemical parameters. Proper dietary counseling along with high biological protein (1.2 gm/kg/ideal body weight) is given during HD superior the nutritional status of undernourished CKD patient. About proper diet counseling of the patients showed a positive response (<0.005) while the only medication and dialysis therapy showed an undergoing undernourished in their nutritional status.
