Özet

Objective: High body mass index (BMI) is associated with mortality in the general population, whereas obesity is suggested to confer a survival advantage in hemodialysis (HD) patients. However, underlying mechanisms are yet to be elucidated. We examined the cross-sectional association of BMI with inflammatory and nutritional markers and atherosclerosis in HD patients.
