Nephron 1999;82:97–99 Protein Catabolic Rate May Underestimate Dietary Protein Intake in Hemodialysis Patients

Abstract

Protein catabolic rate (PCR) or its normalized value, nPCR, is widely used to define nutritional status in dialysis patients [1]. This term PCR obviously is a misnomer and refers to the net PCR since the total PCR is as high as 300 g/day and does not necessarily bear a relationship with protein intake [2]. In the steady state, the net PCR has to be equal to… (More)
