Peritoneal dialysis is associated with several metabolic and nutritional abnormalities, some of which are related to the use of glucose-based solutions. Furthermore, the catabolic effects of uremia per se, protein and amino acid losses into the dialysate, peritonitis and poor appetite contribute to amino acid abnormalities, negative nitrogen balance and a high prevalence of malnutrition in peritoneal dialysis patients. To overcome these problems the use of amino acid instead of glucose as an… CONTINUE READING
