Glucose-sparing PD fluids improve glycemic control

Hemoglobin A1c levels can be inaccurate in people on dialysis. In the IMPENDIA trial using serum fructosamine levels corrected for serum albumin, patients who used PD were randomized to a glucose-sparing (n=89) or standard PD fluid (n=91). In the glucose-sparing group, fructosamine levels dropped significantly, while in the standard group, the levels increased slightly.
