Background: Abnormalities in body water distribution are common in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. Volume expansion, even in the absence of overt edema, contributes to high blood pressure, and progressive volume expansion eventually leads to clinical edema and fluid overload. Total body water (TBW) can be accurately estimated by multifrequency bioelectrical impedance analysis (MF-BIA) which has been proposed for earlier detection of subclinical edema in CKD patients. Objective: To study body fluid distribution and …
