Intradialytic hypotension associated with increased incidence of haemodialysis vascular access thrombosis
A study published online on July 29 in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology reports an increased risk of thrombus(clot) formation in the vascular access which is used for haemodialysis as a consequence of intradialytic hypotension(low blood pressure during dialysis).

Low Phosphate diet not helpful in dialysis patients
Doctors often ask kidney disease patients on dialysis to limit the amount of phosphate they consume in their diets, but this does not help prolong their lives, according to a study appearing in an upcoming issue of the Clinical Journal of the American Society Nephrology (CJASN). The results even suggest that prescribing low phosphate diets may increase dialysis patients' risk of premature death.

Clear advantage of high efficacy Haemodiafiltration over conventional hemodialysis

Latest Research : Nephrology : Dialysis
Dialysis patients may be overmedicated
Changes in a widely used assay (blood test) for parathyroid hormone (PTH) have made its use with the established guidelines for end stage renal disease clinical management both inappropriate and potentially harmful to patients. This research is published in the journal Seminars in Dialysis.

Latest Research : Nephrology : Dialysis
Dialysis patients often have close family members also on dialysis - Study
Nearly one-fourth of all dialysis patients have a close relative on dialysis, researchers at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, and others, report in the current online edition of the American Journal of Nephrology. The researchers suggest screening other relatives for undetected kidney disease.
