BACKGROUND/AIMS Over the last three decades the standard dialysate sodium concentration has increased from 136 to 140 mmol/l (mEq/l) today. There has been great debate as to whether a reduction in dialysate sodium alone can lead to improved blood pressure control, and reduced inter-dialytic weight gain. METHODS An audit was performed in 469 maintenance regular haemodialysis patients who dialysed in seven different centres under the care of one university medical school. RESULTS Those… CONTINUE READING
