Abstract

This dialysate with a low level of glucose (55 mg/dL) did not prevent hypoglycemia episodes during hemodialysis in diabetic patients, these occurrences being similar to that when using a dialysate without glucose. The use of a 90 mg/dL glucose dialysis solution did not induce higher intradialytic glycemia levels than the other dialysis solutions.
