Introduction: Protein energy wasting is closely related to increased morbidity and mortality in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. Simple reliable and easily available methods of determining nutritional status and recognition of short-term changes in body composition are therefore important for clinical practice. Methods: We compared whole-body and segmental composition using multifrequency bioelectrical impedance analysis (MF-BIA) and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) in 104 stable PD patients. Results: Assessment of …
