Meena S.Farman, Maryam I.Salman, Hajir SH. Hamad.


The aim of this study was to assess the effect of long-term administration of Gum Arabic (Acacia Senegal) on some physiological and biochemical parameters of chronic renal failure (CRF) patients who were under regular hemodialysis. Fifty patients aged 23-56 years were recruited in the study, the patients given 30 g of GA daily for six months. Blood specimens were obtainedbefore supplementation GA and then after six months. Urea, creatinine, uric acid, electrolytes, liver function tests, cholesterol, triglycerides, RBCs, WBCs, platelet count and PCV were measured. GA significantly decrease urea, creatinine, uric acid, liver enzymes, total bilirubin, potassium, phosphor, glucose, cholesterol and triglycerides and Significantly increase total protein, albumin, calcium, sodium and RBCs, platelets count and PCV P ≤ 0.05. The results suggest that GA is a good dietary fiber used for CRF patients.
