The effect of nocturnal haemodialysis on body composition. Different studies show that malnutrition is a big problem in dialysis patients. There is a lot of malnutrition and poor physical functioning what results in a decline in muscle and fat tissue. Nocturnal haemodialysis has a lot of benefits, several studies show an increase in protein intake, the patients have more time during the day, and they also show an improved quality of life.
