Studies in adults show superior serum phosphate and parathyroid hormone (PTH) control on slow nocturnal haemodialysis (NHD) compared with conventional haemodialysis. We studied the progress of four children aged 12, 13, 14 and 16 years after they had been initiated on NHD. The follow-up period ranged from 6 months to 20 months. Biochemical indices of bone metabolism were collected prospectively. All four children were initially dialysed against a 1.5 mmol/l calcium bath. In two patients, owing… CONTINUE READING
