Serum levels of twelve guanidino compounds (GCs) and nerve conduction velocities were determined in a dialyzed renal insufficient pediatric population. Two dialytic groups were considered: one subjected to hemodialysis (HD, 11 patients) and one subjected to continuous cycle peritoneal dialysis (CCPD, 13 patients). Before HD, marked increases were found for guanidino-succinic acid (207 times), methylguanidine (> or = 67 times), argininic acid (24 times), creatinine and alpha-N-acetylarginine (18… CONTINUE READING
