Urea kinetic modelling was performed serially, over 24 months, on 55 patients undergoing hemodialysis and eight patients receiving peritoneal dialysis. The data obtained, together with changes in therapy aimed at increasing or decreasing the normalized dose of dialysis [KT/V (urea)], suggested the dependence of dietary protein intake and protein catabolic rate (PCR; g/kg/d) on the KT/V (urea). The studies also indicated that the nature of this relationship may be dependent upon the dialysis… CONTINUE READING
