Brief Summary:
Metabolic disorders and malnutrition are well known and have been reported in patients with chronic liver disease, but the relationship of energy metabolism and changes in nutritional status in patients on the waiting list for liver transplantation are unexplored. The aim of this study was to assess the resting energy expenditure (REE) of these patients, identifying the prevalence of hyper and hypometabolism. In addition, to assess if, malnutrition and clinical variables were associated with REE and metabolic disorders.
