Figure 1 Nutritional status of compensated cirrhosis was determined using the albumin value and non-protein respiratory quotient. The rate of patients with a normal nutritional status (non-protein respiratory quotient level ≥ 0.85 and albumin level > 3.5 g/dL) was significantly higher in alcoholic compensated cirrhosis than that in HCV-related compensated cirrhosis. HCV: Hepatitis C virus; PEM: Protein energy malnutrition.
