We carried out this retrospective study to examine the magnesium status of our chronic ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients dialyzed with 0.75 mmol/L (group I) or 0.50 mmol/L (group II) magnesium peritoneal dialysis solution. A total of 34 anuric patients on CAPD (age:31-72 years; duration of CAPD:7-74 months) were studied. None of them received magnesium-containing phosphate binders or vitamin D. Biochemical parameters including magnesium, calcium, phosphate, parathormone, and… CONTINUE READING
