Aim Low free triiodothyronine (fT3) has been associated with the presence of malnutrition–inflammation syndrome in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and decreased overall survival in ESRD. Since thyroid hormone has a particular effect on body fluid status, we hypothesized that hemodialysis patients with low-T3 syndrome might have interstitial edema. In this study, we examined the relationship between levels of thyroid hormone and body composition parameters in Japanese hemodialysis patients. Methods The subjects …
