Trial design

42 participants in 2 patient groups

Group A
Description:
Group composed of 21 children and adolescents aged between 9 and 19 years old, treated by hemodialysis in two hospitals of Belo Horizonte. Just in case of some evidence of difference in the results within group A, because of the two types of dialysis (via fistula or catheter), this group can be subdivided in subgroups A1 (n=10) and A2 (n=11), respectively. Group A was already on hemodialysis, the intervention was not performed by the researcher. Our goal was only to evaluate some characteristics of these individuals.
Group B
Description:
Group composed of 21 children and adolescents matching age and gender for the Group A participants. The individuals were recruited in schools of Belo Horizonte.
