BACKGROUND In maintenance hemodialysis (MHD) patients, a larger body size is associated with better survival but a worse self-reported quality of life (QoL). It is not clear whether muscle mass or body fat confers the survival advantage. OBJECTIVE We hypothesized that both a low baseline body fat percentage and a loss of fat over time were independently associated with higher mortality but with a better QoL score. DESIGN In 535 adult MHD patients, body fat was measured directly with the use… CONTINUE READING
