The effects of low-sodium peritoneal dialysis fluids on blood pressure, thirst and volume status

By Simon Davies, Ola Carlsson, Ole Simonsen, Ann-Cathrine Johansson, Daniele Venturoli, Ingrid Ledebo, Anders Wieslander, Cian Chan and Bengt Rippe


Background. Poor ultrafiltration is associated with worse outcomes in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. This might in part reflect problems associated with salt and water excess. Increasing the diffusive component of peritoneal sodium removal using low-sodium PD fluids might have beneficial effects on blood pressure (BP), thirst and fluid status that could translate into clinical benefits
