BACKGROUND In patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis (PD), low-calcium dialysate (LCD) has been proposed as the first choice for a better control of renal osteodystrophy. Our aim was to compare the effects on bone metabolism of LCD (calcium: 1.25 mmol/l) with that of a standard calcium dialysate (SCD; calcium: 1.75 mmol/l). METHODS Forty-four PD patients… CONTINUE READING
