Purpose of the study
Treatment
Allocation to intervention
Randomised controlled trial
Procedure for enrolling a subject and allocating the treatment (allocation concealment procedures)
Haemodialysis patients who meet the criteria will be asked to participate and on signing the consent form will be randomly allocated to treatment groups by contacting the holder of the allocation schedule "off site"
Methods used to generate the sequence in which subjects will be randomised (sequence generation)
Using a randomisation table from a statistic book subjects will be allocated by third party by phone on recruitment to the treatment groups
Masking / blinding
Blinded (masking used)

Summary
Brief summary
Several formulations have been used for IDPN and have ranged from those with minimal provision of nutrients to those that deliver significant amounts of calories and amino acids. Administration of lipid was originally considered to be contraindicated in IDPN but studies suggest otherwise and lipids are now used routinely. Austin Health is the first dialysis centre in the world to use standard lipid only IDPN solution. Since then a 20% lipid 500 ml or 30% lipid 250 ml solutions are routinely used in our haemodialysis patients requiring IDPN support. What effect if any is this practice having? Would the use of a more standardised practice of protein, lipid and dextrose combined solution be more beneficial?
