Association of sarcopenia with phase angle and body mass index in kidney transplant recipients

A. Kosoku et al.
Used Parameters : Phase Angle, BMI, SMI

Publication Year : 2020

Country : Japan

Journal : Scientific Reports

Malnutrition is an important risk factor for the development of sarcopenia. Recently, phase angle (PhA) obtained from the bioelectrical impedance analysis is increasingly becoming known as a nutritional status marker and may be considered a good indicator to identify elderly patients at risk of sarcopenia. In this study, we investigated the prevalence of sarcopenia and the relationship between sarcopenia and PhA or body mass index (BMI) as nutritional factors, and evaluated the discrimination performance of these nutritional factors …
