LEITE, Cátia Fernandes  and  ROMBALDIA, Airton José. Renal response to maltodextrin and training at different intensities. Rev. Bras. Ciênc. Esporte [online]. 2015, vol.37, n.1, pp.80-86. ISSN 0101-3289.

The objective was to investigate the renal response to ingestion of maltodextrin and aerobic or anaerobic training in rats.

Materials and methods

The protocol consisted of 8 weeks of swimming aerobic (5% overload) or anaerobic (10% overload). During 37 days, the animals were supplemented by gavage with a daily dose of 0.48g.Kg−1 maltodextrin dissolved in water or with pure water, before training.


The anaerobic training caused increases in concentrations of uric acid, creatinine and total protein and reduction in renal glycogen in kidney. The maltodextrin caused an increase in renal glycogen.


Maltodextrin and anaerobic training provided changes in parameters of renal function in response of this organ to these external stimuli.
