Membrane function at the start of peritoneal dialysis (PD) treatment, measured as solute transport rate and ultrafiltration capacity, varies considerably between individuals. Although this can be correlated to clinical factors such as age and body habitus, this accounts for little of the variance seen. It is increasingly clear, however, that this variability in membrane function does impact on clinical outcomes. Specifically, high solute transport increases mortality risk, independent of other… CONTINUE READING
