Sodium mass balance is primarily dependent on two factors: dietary salt intake and sodium removal during haemodialysis (HD). Salt intake during the interdialysis period is dependent on patient behaviour and is a strong driver of volume overload [1]. The average American consumes ∼149 mmol/day [2]; most Western societies consume between 150 and 250 mmol/day [3]. There is evidence that HD patients ingest similar amounts of sodium. A small series of Spanish HD patients showed baseline sodium… CONTINUE READING
