BACKGROUND Dialysate [Na+] is often overlooked as a contributor to hypertension in patients on haemodialysis (HD). We report observational experience with a facility level decrease in dialysate [Na+] from 141 mmol/l to 138 mmol/l, in the absence of concurrent change with respect to dietary sodium regulation. METHODS The sample comprised all patients (n=52) dialysing at a single HD facility over an 8-month period flanking the change in dialysate [Na+]. Outcomes included repeated observations… CONTINUE READING
