Myriam Isnard-Rouchon has completed her MD in Clermont-Ferrand Auvergne University, her Master in Nutrition in Clermont II University. She works in a Non-Profit Association for Dialysis Patients in France. She is involved in clinical research, teaching at the University of Science and Technical for Physical and Sportive Activity, member of the Liaison Committee for Food and Nutrition in Auvergne. She has a good experience in physical activity for dialysis patients with 150 patients involved in her program among 400 dialysis patients (HD & PD), and begins an educational program for kidney transplant patients. The results are beginning to be published, and have been presented in the ASN Kidney Week in 2013 and 2014 (Posters).


Cardiovascular diseases are the main cause of morbidity and mortality in haemodialysis patients. Chronic Kidney Disease is a Cardiovascular Risk Factor (CVRF) associated with Hypertension (HTA), Dyslipidemia (low HDL), and Haemoglobin (Hb) variation. Oxidant stress also plays a central role in the development of cardiovascular diseases. Physical activity is well known in cardiology to allow a control of the CRF and a better survival. The impact of physical exercise on blood pressure levels, Dyslipidemia and Hb variation has been investigated intervention studies of cycling exercise program during haemodialysis. We already showed that intradialytic aerobic cycling training protocol exerts beneficial effects in CKD patients by reducing the most sensitive and reliable marker of OS (IsoP). The aim of this study was to determine if PA may allow a better control of the CVRF and decrease cardiovascular hospitalization.
