OBJECTIVE For the normalization of serum magnesium (Mg) concentration, dialysate Mg concentration tends to be reduced in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients. The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of Mg on parathyroid hormone (PTH). DESIGN Prospective study of the utilization of Mg-free dialysate for 8 weeks. SETTING Dialysis service, Itabashi Hospital, Nihon University School of Medicine. PATIENTS Five stable CAPD patients (1 male; 4 female; age 49.7… CONTINUE READING
