The aim of this study was to detect the potential occurrence of early abnormalities of body composition in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) at first referral to an outpatient nephrology clinic. Eighty-four patients with CKD (49 men and 35 women) were compared with 604 healthy control subjects (298 men and 306 women). These alterations are related to the renal dysfunction, are more marked in the presence of diabetes, and mainly indicate the presence of overhydration in the absence of edema. Therefore, BIA represents an attractive clinical tool to detect impairment of body composition from the early stages of CKD.

Abstract

The aim of this study was to detect the potential occurrence of early abnormalities of body composition in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) at first referral to an outpatient nephrology clinic. Eighty-four patients with CKD (49 men and 35 women) were compared with 604 healthy control subjects (298 men and 306 women). These alterations are related to the renal dysfunction, are more marked in the presence of diabetes, and mainly indicate the presence of overhydration in the absence of edema. Therefore, BIA represents an attractive clinical tool to detect impairment of body composition from the early stages of CKD.
