Abdominal fat deposition is associated with increased inflammation, protein-energy wasting and worse outcome in patients undergoing haemodialysis.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE The role of obesity in promoting or preventing the complications of haemodialysis patients remains unclear, with several studies suggesting that obesity may even be beneficial.
