Abstract

Objective: Subjective Global Assessment (SGA), a semi-quantitative method of evaluation for nutritional status, has a widespread use among haemodialysis patients both in research studies and in clinical practice. This study was performed to analyze possible correlations between SGA and food intake, anthropometric measurements, bioelectrical impedance (BIA) and biochemical parameters in haemodialysis patients.
