Novel Equation for Estimating Resting Energy Expenditure
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The energy and nutrition states are closely associated with CKD patients complications and outcomes.To reach the energy balance target, we need the accurate resting energy expenditure level of patients. Traditional equations are not applicable to CKD patients,so we aim to develop and validate a equation for estimating resting energy expenditure in CKD patients.
