Gastrointestinal Symptoms and Nutritional Status in Women and Men on Maintenance Hemodialysis
Journal of Renal Nutrition, 04/27/2012Silva LF et al.

These gastrointestinal symptoms and perhaps their detrimental effects on dietary intake may partially explain a poorer nutritional status in MHD women.
