Background and objectives Peritoneal dialysis adequacy is typically assessed by urea clearance corrected for total body water (TBW) on the basis of anthropomorphic equations, which do not readily take into account changes in body composition, which may vary between ethnic groups. To determine whether ethnicity could affect estimates of peritoneal dialysis adequacy, we compared TBW estimated by anthropomorphic equations and that measured by multifrequency bioimpedance spectroscopy. Design, setting, participants, & …
