Objective and Aim: The objectives were to study hemolytic uremic syndrome, to treat the condition with suitable medical nutritional management therapy, to achieve positive fluid balance, to control and maintain blood pressure, and to retard its progression to chronic kidney failure.Methods: 24 hour dietary recall before hospitalization (home food intake), recall during hospital stay was used to develop suitable diet chart, thereby controlling and maintaining ryle's tube feeding (RTF) parameters. Observations: During hospitalization, the patient has completed 18 cycles of plasmapheresis and 8 cycles of hemodialysis. The patient was advised 60 kcal/kg of energy with 1.2 g of protein/day during the study, which showed effective recovery of the condition. Results and Conclusions: The study presented near-normal ranges on the day of discharge, with decrease in creatinine and blood urea nitrogen levels and increase in albumin level. As a result, the patient was discharged in hemodynamically stable condition.
