Daily measurements of nitrogen balance were made at two levels of protein intake in five patients undergoing chronic intermittent dialysis therapy. During ingestion of high (1.4 g/kg of body wt) protein intake, nitrogen balance was positive on nondialysis days and negative on dialysis days, so that cumulative balance for the week of study was not different from zero. During ingestion of low (0.5 g/kg) protein intake, nitrogen balance was approximately zero on nondialysis days but was again… CONTINUE READING
