Influence of Body Composition and Nutrition Parameters in Handgrip Strength: Are There Differences by Sex in Hemodialysis Patients?

Abstract

BACKGROUND Hemodialysis (HD) patients are vulnerable to multiple metabolic and nutrition derangements, leading to changes in body composition. Handgrip strength (HGS) has been used as a nutrition marker. We aimed to evaluate the relationship between HGS and lean tissue mass (LTM) with several parameters in HD patients and develop HGS predictive equations… (More)
