    Abstract:

    Objective: Aluminum is an ubiquitous element and may accumulate in patients with terminal renal insufficiency in dialysis treatment. For this group of patients, evaluation of both, serum Aluminum Level and bone toxicity, are necessary. This work describes an investigation carried out with chronic renal patients on hemodialysis treatment at hospital Casa de Saudein Santa Maria (RS). The aim was to verify if there is any relationship between the water and food ingested by the patients and their Aluminum serum Level. Methods: Patients answered a questionnaire about food habits and, according to the answers, the most consumed foodstuff were selected for the analysis. Patients undertook a collection of their drinking water at home, which was analyzed for its alu minum content. Patients’ Blood was also collected for determination of Aluminum Levels. A total of 133 patients participated in the study. Eighty-two water samples were analyzed, including mineral water, well water and treated water, from different cities. Twenty-seven different foodstuffs, including grains, fruits, vegetables, drinks, bread and sugar were also analyzed. Aluminum determination was carried out by graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry, after convenient sample treatment. Results: Water samples presented Aluminum Levels between 3 and 439µg/L. Among the foodstuff, the highest Levels were found in rice, 92µg/g, lettuce, 48µg/g, and milk, 1700µg/L. Artificial juice and soft drinks also presented elevated Aluminum Levels, between 60 and 257µg/L. In order to evaluate the Aluminum ingestion through food, the intake was standardized considering portions in a mass basis. Thus, it was possible to deter mine the amount of Aluminum ingested by each patient per day via food. For water, it was considered the consumption of one liter per patient per day. Con clusions: It was not observed a clear relationship between the Level of Aluminum in the patients’ Blood and the Aluminum intake via water. However, a cor relation was found between the Aluminum ingested via food and the Aluminum Blood Level of the patients. (J Bras Nefrol 2005;27(3): 101-109)
