ANTHROPOMETRIC INDICES TO DEFINE OBESITY IN NON–DIALYSED CHRONIC KIDNEY DISEASE PATIENTS

Anjani Bakshi, Dr. Kalyani Singh

Abstract :

 Obesity not only increases the risk of kidney disease but also increases disease progression. To measure obesity in chronic kidney disease patients, anthropometry emerged to be the most easy, practical, and inexpensive method. Present study was undertaken with the aim of assessing obesity in 120 chronic kidney disease patients. Measures such as height, weight, waist circumference and hip circumference were taken. Waist hip ratio and waist height ratio were computed. Independent t test was used as statistical test to find difference in between stages. Mean body mass index of the patients was 26.83±5.35kg/m2. Out of 120 CKD patients, 62 % were pre–obese and obese. As compared with the reference values form literature, non–dialysed patients of the present study, appeared to be obese. Strategies, thus need to be identified to prevent patients from obesity associated complications and from progression to end stage renal disease.
