We examined whether growth failure is associated with more-frequent hospitalizations or higher mortality in children with kidney disease. We studied data on prevalent United States pediatric patients with ESRD in 1990 who were followed through 1995. Patients were categorized according to the standard deviation score (SDS) of their incremental growth during 1990: severe… CONTINUE READING
