Differences in corrective mode for divalent ions and parathyroid hormone between standard- and low-calcium dialysate in patients on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis--result of a nationwide survey in Japan.

Abstract

BACKGROUND In patients on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD), dialysate calcium concentration has a strong influence on correction of serum calcium, phosphorus, and parathyroid hormone (PTH); however, the optimal concentration of Ca in PD solution is still uncertain. The aim of the survey reported here was to evaluate the prevalence of… (More)
