The anthropometry-bioimpedance analysis-nutrition (ABN) score is a recently proposed objective method of assessing malnutrition in children on chronic peritoneal dialysis (CPD) that uses nine parameters based on anthropometry, skinfold thickness and bioimpedance analysis. The aim of this prospective, cross-sectional study was to apply it to children treated with CPD in seven Italian paediatric nephrology centres, with a score of < 10.33 (the 3rd percentile in a population of 264 healthy… CONTINUE READING
