Correlations of lean body mass with nutritional indicators and mortality in patients on peritoneal dialysis.

Abstract

Detection of malnutrition in dialysis patients is important since this is a predictor of morbidity and mortality. Lean body mass (LBM) reflects the somatic protein store and this was measured by creatinine kinetics, anthropometry, and biometric impedance in 210 incident Chinese patients on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis. The study was started in… (More)
