The Mini Nutritional Assessment (MNA) has recently been designed and validated to provide a single, rapid assessment of nutritional status in elderly patients in outpatient clinics, hospitals, and nursing homes.

It has been translated into several languages and validated in many clinics around the world.

INTRODUCTION Malnutrition is a negative predictive factor for survival in end stage renal disease (ESRD) patients.

Coincidence of malnutrition, inflammation and atherosclerosis (MIA syndrome) in the dialysis population is an exceptionally poor outcome event.

Due to flexibility, ease of performance and reproducibility, clinical scales are of particular value in assessment of nutritional status in ESRD patients.

The aim of the present study was to evaluate the clinical value of Mini Nutritional Assessment (MNA) in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients.

Results: The prevalence of malnutrition in the community-dwelling old was 3.95% and 83.7% of the sample was at risk of malnutrition. (2013) Associations of social participation, demographic, socioeconomic and disease factors with nutritional risk in a group of older Hong Kong adults.
