Traditionally, peritoneal dialysis is performed using a volume of 2 l of fluid, containing glucose as an osmotic agent and lactate as a buffer. Currently, both the volume to be applied and the composition of the dialysis solution are subject to discussion. An interesting contribution with respect to the value of pHneutral dialysis solutions is reported in this issue of Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation [1].
