Calcium balance and intact PTH variations during haemodiafiltration.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Recent approaches to prevent and treat secondary hyperparathyroidism in dialysis patients include decreasing dialysate Ca content from 1.75 to 1.5 mM or lower. We have recently observed that by decreasing dialysate Ca to 1.25 mM a rise in intact parathormone serum levels occurs despite adequately controlled predialysis Ca and phosphate serum… (More)
