A paucity of outcome measures exist for children, making evidence-based treatment guidelines difficult to establish. Serum albumin has been identified as a surrogate marker for nutritional status and morbidity/mortality in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). We hypothesized that the prevalence of low serum albumin (<2.9 g/dl) in children on peritoneal dialysis (PD) may be greater, making this population at risk. Patient data were collected prospectively over 24 months (1999–2000) from… CONTINUE READING
