CONCLUSION: Although formally measuring peritoneal glucose absorption is time consuming and requires patient co-operation, current predictive equations overestimate glucose absorption and do not provide accurate estimations of glucose absorption particularly for automated peritoneal dialysis patients.

Authors: Lin WC, Tsai JP, Lai YH, Lin YL, Kuo CH, Wang CH, Hsu BG Abstract Osteoprotegerin (OPG) is a potential biomarker of cardiovascular disease complications and severity. Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is associated with an increased risk of death in patients on peritoneal dialysis (PD). Therefore, this study aimed to evaluate the relationship between serum OPG levels and PAD by measuring the ankle-brachial index (ABI) of patients on PD. A commercial enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay kit was used to measure OPG values. Left or right ABI values of

For as long as I can remember, “Peeling off the layers to reveal the real” has been my credo. In a dream, the words “Bare Boldly,” echoed through my sleeping but ever so active brain.” When messages come through that insistently, they can’t be ignored. My inner and outer work as a hybrid therapist-journalist prepare me to take this on every day. When that happens, I question if I am too self-revealing. Last year, I penned an article for Psych Central called When A Therapist and Journalist Comes Clean About Her Self Doubt. It takes a confessional tone as I admit that the way I present isn...

Authors: Hamad A, Hussain ME, Elsanousi S, Ahmed H, Navalta L, Lonappan V, Alali F Abstract Introduction: Hypokalemia is common in patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis (PD). It is associated with increased cardiovascular and all-cause mortality. Treatment usually includes oral potassium supplements, which are poorly tolerated. Our aim was to evaluate the prevalence of hypokalemia in PD patients in Qatar and to improve treatment measures. Methods: All PD patients in Qatar with persistent hypokalemia and on potassium supplement were included. We performed a root cause analysis, and a management pathway was cre...

Effect of nurse-led food exchange intervention for patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis
. Clin Nephrol. 2020 Jan 15;: Authors: Luo Y, Huang Y, Zhang Y, Xiang J, Wu Q Abstract AIM: We aimed to apply nurse-led food exchange model intervention to peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients and verify its effectiveness. BACKGROUND: Protein-energy malnutrition is a prominent problem in patients on PD, and it has been estimated that 40% of PD patients suffer from malnutrition to some extent. INTRODUCTION: The rate of malnutrition among PD patients has been relatively high in recent years. Although a lo...

We present a series of 3 PD patients who developed iron overload while receiving FC for management of hyperphosphatemia. These cases highlight the importance of close monitoring of iron studies and question whether a lower maximum dose of FC should be recommended in PD patients. Further studies are needed to assess the safety of the maximum approved dose of FC among PD patients.
