    Association of Body Fluid Expansion With Optical Coherence Tomography Measurements in Diabetic Retinopathy and Diabetic Macular Edema

    Purpose : To evaluate associations of body fluid status with optical coherence tomography measurements in patients with diabetic retinopathy (DR). Methods : This prospective, cross-sectional study enrolled a total of 104 eyes from 104 patients with diabetes mellitus for fundus evaluations of DR and optical coherence tomography examinations. DR severity was graded via fundus photography. Systemic body fluid status was recorded via a body composition monitor with output values of total body water, extracellular water (ECW), intracellular water, and overhydration (OH). Relative overhydration (ROH) was defined as OH/ECW. Volume overload was defined as ROH ≥7%. Correlations of central subfield thickness (CST ...
