|dc.description.abstract||Objectives: The aim of this study is to evaluate changes in body composition in accordance with residual renal function (RRF). Subjects and Methods: Two hundred forty-four patients with more than 1 year of follow-up were enrolled. The mean value of RRF at peritoneal dialysis (PD) initiation and 1 year after PD initiation was used as an indicator of the time-averaged RRF (TA-RRF). The patients were divided into 3 groups with respect to the tertile of the TA-RRF level: low tertile (n = 81), middle tertile (n = 82), and high tertile (n 5 81). Body composition measurement was determined from dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry and bioimpedance analysis. This analysis was performed at PD initiation and 1 year after PD initiation. Results: Multivariate analysis showed that the high TA-RRF tertile was associated with an increase in lean mass index. Fat mass index in all tertiles and bone mineral content index in the middle and high TA-RRF tertiles were increased, but no significant difference were observed in these changes among the 3 tertiles. The edema index decreased over the 1-year PD period. The high TA-RRF tertile was associated with a lower edema index. Although there was no statistical significance, the increase in fat mass/lean mass ratio (FM/LM) attenuated as the grade of TA-RRF tertile increased. The increase in fat mass index was similar to the trend in FM/LM. Conclusion: TA-RRF was associated with an increase in total lean mass and a decrease in edema index.
