  Purpose
This study aims to show that using a glucose (sugar) concentration of 100 mg/dL in the dialysis fluid for hemodialysis is not inferior to using a concentration of 200 mg/dL with regard to the frequency and magnitude of blood glucose drops. Other parameters that will be compared between the two groups are blood pressure, heart rhythm, weight gain between dialysis treatments, and fatigue after the treatment.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Frequency and magnitude of hypoglycemia during and early after the hemodialysis treatment [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Intradialytic blood pressure, interdialytic weight gain, serum potassium and phosphorus concentrations, arrhythmias during dialysis and in the early postdialytic period, postdialytic fatigue [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]

Enrollment: 30
Study Start Date: February 2008
Study Completion Date: August 2008
Primary Completion Date: August 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: 1 Procedure: Hemodialysis
varying concentration of glucose in dialysate
Active Comparator: 2 Procedure: Hemodialysis
varying concentration of glucose in dialysate

Detailed Description:

This is a prospective, randomized, single-blinded cross-over non-inferiority trial of intra- and early post-dialytic glucose homeostasis comparing 100 mg/dL against 200 mg/dL dialysate glucose concentration in 30 hemodialysis patients. The primary outcome is the frequency and magnitude of hypoglycemia during and early after the hemodialysis treatment. Secondary outcomes include intradialytic blood pressure, interdialytic weight gain, serum potassium and phosphorus concentrations, arrhythmias during dialysis and in the early postdialytic period, and postdialytic fatigue.
