Objective: To establish the accuracy of bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) for the assessment of total and appendicular body composition in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. Design: Cross-sectional study. Setting: University Nephrology Clinic. Subjects: In all, 20 PD patients and 77 healthy controls matched for gender, age and body mass index. Methods: Whole-body fat-free mass (FFM) and appendicular lean tissue mass (LTM) were measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry. Resistance (R) of arms, trunk and legs was measured …
