Background and Objectives: Residual renal function (RRF) is important for peritoneal dialysis (PD) technique failure and patient survival. Reduction in extracellular water (ECW) has been reported to reduce urine output. We audited volume status and RRF to determine whether ECW was linked to urinary output. Methods: We retrospectively audited PD patients who had RRF and multiple frequency bioimpedance spectroscopy assessments. Results: 550 patients were studied. Urine output was lower in males (p= 0.021), non-Caucasoids (p …
