Core Tip Malnutrition in cirrhotic patients is a common clinical condition, but there is currently no nutritional diagnosis method defined as the gold standard. Presently, the only nutritional indicator compatible with the clinical condition through the Child-Pugh score in cirrhosis is the phase angle (PA). The PA has been a reliable method and is free of influences regarding changes in body composition of cirrhotic patients at an advanced stage. The PA measured by bioelectrical impedance analysis promises to be a significant parameter for early nutritional intervention in patients with chronic liver disease.
