  Background Top


Achieving dry weight (DW) is of prime importance in hemodialysis (HD) patients. The conventional clinical method of DW assessment may fail to account for on-going changes in nutritional status, affecting lean body mass. There is emerging evidence that bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) is a reliable, noninvasive method to determine body composition and DW in HD patients.


  Aim of the Study Top


The aim is to determine the DW by BIA in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) undergoing HD and compare this with DW estimated by the conventional (clinical) method.


  Methods Top


Sixty-three stable ESRD patients on HD were included. Patients who had pacemaker were excluded from the study. DW measurement was done by the BIA technology using InBody S10 (InBody Co. Ltd., Seoul, Korea). To standardize the procedure, BIA measurements were taken in the supine position with the limbs spread apart. DW was also determined clinically by a nephrologist who was blinded to the DW reading obtained by BIA. This was considered as the weight at which the patients had neither symptoms nor abnormal findings, suggestive of volume overload.


  Results Top


Of 63 cases in this study, 39 were males and 24 were females. The average age of patients was 57.01 ± 21.06 years (male: 56.56 + 15.29 years, female: 54.75 + 16.99 years). The etiology of chronic kidney disease was diabetic kidney disease in 31 patients and nondiabetic kidney disease in 32 patients. The mean + 1 standard deviation (SD) DW calculated by BIA method was 62.32 + 14.28 kg. The mean + 1 SD DW calculated by the conventional clinical method was 62.12 + 13.92 kg (P > 0.05). There was good correlation of DW measured by BIA and clinical method.


  Conclusions Top


Our study shows that there is no significant difference in DW estimated by the BIA and conventional method.
