Overloaded sodium (Na) induces the expansion of extracellular volume in case with severe renal insufficiency. Accordingly, in patients undergoing CAPD, the Na balance via trans-peritoneum is the critical determinant of fluid state. This study was performed to clarify the trans-peritoneal Na kinetics in patients using standard dialysate (Na: 132mEq/l, 2 -1), and to explore the clinical effects of lower Na concentration solution.
