Aim Management of low skeletal muscle mass (LSM) is a very important topic as LSM affects patient mortality in liver diseases. Changes in body composition are unexplored in chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) patients, including those with liver cirrhosis, who receive direct‐acting antiviral (DAA) therapy.

Methods Blood examination, visceral fat area (VFA) and extremity skeletal muscle mass were measured using the multifrequency …
