BACKGROUND A direct relationship between dialysate-to-plasma sodium gradient, blood pressure and interdialytic weight gain exists in hemodialysis (HD) patients. The aim of this study was to delineate the long-term variability of serum sodium in HD patients. METHODS We performed a retrospective cohort analysis of serum sodium and other analytes routinely evaluated in 100 stable chronic HD patients observed for 12 months. RESULTS Individual levels across the cohort varied from 122 to 145 m M… CONTINUE READING
