Hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis

Renal dialysis (process the blood when the kidneys have failed) will require access to the blood stream. This procedure involves either insertion of a catheter and/or creation of a transmission between an artery and a vein beneath the skin. Usually this is accomplished in the patient’s arm and is often accomplished as an outpatient procedure. Dialysis treatments replace some of these functions through diffusion there are two main types of dialysis: haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis are both used to treat kidney failure. Haemodialysis uses a man-made membrane (dialyzer) to filter wastes and remove extra fluid from the blood. Peritoneal dialysis uses the lining of the abdominal cavity (peritoneal membrane) and a solution (dialysate) to remove wastes and extra fluid from the body. Both haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis can cause side effects. During this 5 year study the investigators would like to test if a different nutrition and diet can explain better survival of minority dialysis patients. The investigators will also test if in additional to nutrition there are 2 other reasons for better survival of minority dialysis patients, namely differences in bone and minerals and differences in social and psychological and mental health. The investigators plan to study 450 haemodialysis patients every 6 months in several dialysis clinics in Los Angeles South Bay area. These subjects will include 30% African Americans, 30% Hispanics, 30% non-Hispanic Whites and 10% Asians. In the HEMO study, the incidence of infection-related deaths was not reduced by higher dose of dialysis or by high-flux dialyzers, and most infection-related hospitalizations were not attributed to vascular access.

Nephrology associated Universities are 55 nearly in USA and Major Nephrology Societies are 17 around the globe. Large scale research development is being conducted in the field of nephrology for the past two decades. Tripled in value from USD 560 million is being funded on Kidney diseases alone per year. Baltimore (Maryland) also bears a total 3,500 hospitals working on Nephrology & Therapeutics. Hence it’s considered to be one of the finest places for a Conference on Nephrology.
