Retrospective Cohort Study
Risk of Bias Assessment Rating:
Patients were included if they had routine surveillance blood laboratory measurements in three consecutive months during the study period.
Exclusions were for peritoneal dialysis (n ¼ 1), discontinuation of hemodialysis due to recovery of native kidney function (n ¼ 2), transfer to another dialysis unit (n ¼ 9) or death (n ¼ 5) prior to 3 months of routine labs resulting in a final analytic sample of 81 patients for this analysis.
To see if Predialysis creatinine and interdialytic change in creatinine are associated with proxies of nutritional status and mortality in hemodialysis patients.
