Abstract

Background: Energy balance (EB) is important when assessing nutritional status. EB has never been assessed in haemodialysis (HD) and peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. The present study aimed to assess weekly EB in these patients. Methods: This clinical cross-sectional study was conducted for 7 days in eight HD and eight PD patients. Nutritional status was assessed by anthropometry, bioelectrical impedance analysis and biochemical markers. Energy intake (EI per day) and total energy expenditure (TEE per day) were determined by a 7-day weighed food diary and a portable armband device, respectively. Results: No significant differences in age, body mass index, fat free mass (FFM), parathyroid hormone were found between the two groups. EB was calculated by subtracting TEE per day from EI per day. EB was negative in HD {-1347 (1276) kJ day-1 [-322 (305) kcal day-1]}, as well as in PD patients {-427 (5338) kJ day-1 [-102 (395) kcal day-1]}. TEE per day was positively correlated with EI per day, prealbumin, FFM. EI per day was positively correlated with prealbumin. C-reactive protein was negatively correlated with TEE and FFM (P
