Eleven patients who met criteria of refractory chronic renal failure without associated severe hypertension or other systemic disease underwent periodic hemodialysis for periods of 2 to 30 months.
Despite protein restriction, a high caloric intake, and maximum ambulation, the blood urea nitrogen (BUN) rose an average of 12 mg/100 ml/day between dialyses, and the patients lost an average of 0.09 kg/day. The average BUN was 118 mg/100 ml before and 48 mg/100 ml after dialysis in spite of this degree of protein catabolism. The serum creatinine was on the average 14.8 mg/100 ml before and 7.3 mg/100 ml after dialysis.
