The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of hemodialysis on body composition assessment by dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA). Seventeen patients with chronic renal failure who were on a regular hemodialysis schedule were studied. Body weight and body composition were assessed immediately before and approximately 1 hour after a typical hemodialysis session. Body weight was assessed by means of an electronic balance. Body composition measurements were made by DEXA. Whole-body and… CONTINUE READING
