Protein-energy wasting and peritoneal function in elderly peritoneal dialysis patients

Abstract

Nutritional status is important in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. We aimed to compare the peritoneal transport (PT) characteristics and indicators of nutritional status in elderly and non-elderly PD patients. One-hundred and four consecutive patients were divided into either the elderly (>65 years old; n = 44) or the non-elderly (≤65 years old; n = 60… (More)
