Intra-Dialytic Resistance Exercise…


Abstract: Hemodialysis (HD) patients generally have reduced functional capacity which leads to low level of physical activity. Exercise training in patients with end stage renal disease for a prolonged period of time has been shown to improve physical functioning and dialysis efficiency. While there are many literatures on aerobic exercises for HD patients reporting improved dialysis outcome and physical performance, resistance exercises have not been as extensively studied. Among the limited

Abstract: The objective of this study is to determine the possible effects of varying levels of sodium citrate and garlic paste on composition and quality parameters of treated smoke dried meat stored at ambient temperature for twelve (12) weeks. Results obtained indicate that the treatments significantly (p≤0.5) retained the proximate composition (fat, protein and ash), and significantly reduced (p≥0.5) the spoilage indices measured by the thiobarbituric acid (TBA) and free fatty acid

Ginger possesses anti-microbial properties (gingerol) which if included in yoghurt products could improve its microbial loads, nutritive aspect and organoleptic status. Twenty litres of White Fulani raw milk was used with 100g of fresh ginger (blended with 20mls of water to extract the juice).
