78535-2Glucose [Moles/volume] in Peritoneal dialysis fluid --4 hour dwell specimenActive

Term Description

A Peritoneal Equilibration Test (PET) is used to assess transport properties of the peritoneal membrane in patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis. Patients arrive at the dialysis unit in the morning with their overnight dwell fluid still in the abdomen. The overnight fluid is drained, and after complete drainage, in the classic PET, 2000 ml of a 2.27% glucose solution is instilled and peritoneal dialysis is begun. Ten ml samples are drawn at time 0, 2, and 4 hours to measure creatinine, urea, and glucose. The PET assesses the rate of solute equilibration between peritoneal capillary blood and dialysate based on the ratio of the solute concentrations in dialysate and plasma (D/P). PET results are used to adjust various aspects of a patient's peritoneal dialysis regimen, including dwell time, number of exchanges, and dialysis volume and composition. [PMID:7474677]

Part Description

LP14635-4   Glucose
Glucose (C6H12O6) is a simple monosaccharide and monomer of carbohydrates. Glucose provides energy for cellular processes and aids metabolism within the body. When food is ingested, the carbohydrates within the food are broken down into glucose molecules. Blood glucose content is significant in determining an individual's overall state of health. An elevated blood glucose level is called hyperglycemia and a deficient blood glucose level is called hypoglycemia. When an individual is hyperglycemic and cannot properly regulate their blood glucose level they are considered diabetic. Type 1 diabetes is caused by the immune system attacking pancreatic beta cells (cells that produce insulin) and Type 2 diabetes is caused by insulin resistance.
