Abstract: Bioimpedance spectroscopy (BIS) is a valuable tool to assess nutrition and volume status in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. However, data about the influence of intraperitoneal fluid on body composition measures are conflicting, and there is no clear consensus about whether the abdomen should be drained before the procedure. We designed a comparison study to detect the influence of intra-abdominal fluid on BIS results.
