Protein catabolic rates can be used to estimate protein intake in dialysis patients and determine if dietary protein consumption is appropriate. Protein catabolic rate (PCR) is calculated using the urea-nitrogen appearance rate (UNA). Special consideration including, dietary monitoring of caloric and protein intake, should be given to patients with low protein catabolic rates. PMID: 2129442 Source: Regenstrief LOINC
