[Evaluation of nutritional status of patients on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) by dual photon energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA)].

Abstract

Malnutrition is a serious complication in patients on long-term CAPD treatment. Accordingly, quantitative evaluation of nutritional status is a critical issue. This study aimed to assess nutritional status by dual photon energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) in CAPD patients. Total lean body mass (D-TBM), right arm lean mass (D-RAM) and body fat percent (D… (More)
