Since the original description of the obesity‐survival paradox in 1999, which suggested a survival advantage for overweight and obese patients undergoing hemodialysis, a large body of evidence supporting the paradox has accumulated. The reason for the paradox has yet to be defined. Better nutrition may be a partial explanation, or it may be that in uremic milieu, excessive fat and surplus calories might confer some survival advantage. The “surplus calorie theory” as a potential mechanism for… Expand
