Background Malnutrition is a consistent finding in hemodialysis (HD) patients and is associated with high mortality. The aim was to compare nutrition status indicators using dual‐energy x‐ray absorptiometry (DXA) as reference in HD patients. Methods Observational cross‐sectional study with 42 patients, 55.8 years (±14.6) old, 60% male, HD 2–3 times per week for≥ 3 months. HD ranged from 3 months to 28 years (median, 17.3; interquartile range, 8.73–39.0). We used body mass index (BMI) and fat mass (FM) by skinfold thickness …
