NDT - Article of the week
Fibroblast growth factor 23 is associated with fractional excretion of sodium in patients with chronic kidney disease 
Recent studies suggest that the phosphaturic hormone fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) influences sodium homeostasis, however the clinical impact of this presumed link remains unclear. Xu et al. studied the association between FGF23 and fractional sodium excretion in non-dialysis CKD patients. Their findings provide new insights into the complex relationship between FGF23 and renal sodium handling.
The paper is accessible here free of charge until this Sunday at 23.59 (UK time). Do not miss it!

Keen on getting involved in Incremental Haemodialysis?
Why not take the survey created by Prof. C. Basile (EUDIAL Chair) - it is available here.
The majority of patients on dialysis are currently treated with a fixed dose thrice-weekly haemodialysis regimen irrespective of whether or not they are starting dialysis therapy (incident) or have been receiving dialysis for some time (prevalent) and without taking into consideration their residual kidney function (RKF). The thrice-weekly regimen has almost been regarded as a dogma in the dialysis community. Incredibly, this schedule has been widely accepted worldwide without ever undergoing any randomised controlled trial to examine whether less frequent haemodialysis treatments would be inadequate or harmful.
