Because the mean interdialytic
weight gain of the patients was 2.
The use of the BMI alone in determining the nutritional status of CKD patients on dialysis may not be appropriate because of interdialytic
weight gain and variable dry-weight status.
weight gain, systolic blood pressure, serum albumin, and C-reactive protein levels change in chronic dialysis patients prior to death.
weight gain, compliance with dialysis regimen an age are independent predictors of blood pressure in hemodialysis patient.
HD patients (and carers) should receive education regarding PDF as part of pre-dialysis and ongoing education, including education about the importance of controlling interdialytic
weight gain, management of comorbidities, and strategies to decrease symptoms of fatigue (such as exercise, diet and healthy sleep routines).
This non-physiological pattern and inability to remove all types and sizes of uraemic toxins result in both interdialytic
and intradialytic complications with an association of high risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.
Such fluctuations can lead to evaluation errors, which can be minimized by performing the examination on interdialytic
Stimulated sweating as a therapy to reduce interdialytic
weight gain and improve potassium balance in chronic hemodialysis patients: a pilot study.
interval and mortality among patients receiving hemodialysis.
The preliminary analysis found that: Heart arrhythmias were strongly associated with the hemodialysis schedule: Patients' risk for cardiac rhythm problems peaked during the 12-hour interval beginning with each session, decreased for the next 12 hours, and then gradually increased during the remainder of the interdialytic
interval (the interval between dialysis sessions).
Although debate still exists, intradialytic exercise programs are superior to interdialytic
exercise programs in terms of a lower dropout rate.
The major reason for this refusal was the time commitment to interdialytic
