This study was carried out in order to find out whether the estimation of protein intake (EPI) from urinary urea nitrogen (UUN) was useful for patient with liver cirrhosis. The actual protein intake (API) is defined as the sum, dietary protein intake and protein intake of BCAA supplement. EPI was defined, {[UUN (g/day) + 0.031 × Body weight (kg)] × 0.625 + urine protein} × 1.25. For all 27 patients there was a significant positive correlation between API and EPI. BPI was correlated with API (R = 0.681, Spearman r = 0.54, N = 27, P = 0.0006). EPI from UUN was useful for patient with liver cirrhosis and education for patients.
