BACKGROUND During haemodialysis, calcium balance can affect, or be affected by, mineral metabolism. However, when dialysate calcium concentration (d[Ca]) is chosen or kinetic models are employed to calculate calcium balance, bone remodelling is rarely considered. In this study, we examined whether bone remodelling affects calcium mass transfer during haemodialysis. METHODS We dialysed 23 patients using a d[Ca] of 1.0, 1.25, 1.5 or 1.75 mmol/L. Calcium mass transfer was measured and associated… CONTINUE READING
