Hemodialysis.com: What are the main findings of the study?
Dr. Jain: Our study was aimed to analyze the baseline self reported sodium intake in maintenance hemodialysis population and see if it correlates with interdialytic weight gain. We know that sodium intake plays an important role in blood pressure and cardiovascular outcomes in non dialysis patients. In dialysis population, there is some evidence that sodium load affects volume control, but how much of it actually associated with self reported dietary sodium intake in unknown.
