What is the purpose of this trial?
This research study involves people who are actively undergoing peritoneal dialysis and have been on peritoneal dialysis for less than 3 years. The study will compare the ability of two different dialysis solutions to remove salt from the body. We will compare a standard peritoneal dialysis solution (Dianeal Low-Calcium with 4.25% dextrose) to a no-sodium solution (10% dextrose in sterile water). The study involves 2 treatment visits lasting up to 6 hours each and one follow-up visit that will take 30 minutes. Compensation for completion of all study procedures is up to $750.
