Estimated Enrollment: 240
Study Start Date: June 2008
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Drug: furosemide
patients will take furosemide 60 or 120mg oral per day for 1 years .
Other Name: Lasix(Diuretics)
Active Comparator: furosemide 2
Patients will take 120mg furosemide per day for 1 years and undergo a study assessment at 3, 6, 12, 18, 24 months .
Drug: furosemide
patients will take furosemide 60 or 120mg oral per day for 1 years .

No Intervention: control
Patients in control group will not take furosemide

Detailed Description:

There are 3 phases in this study. Phase 1 is screening phase. Each subject will be evaluated to determine if he/she is eligible for the study. Phase 2 is the intervention phage. Patients are divided arbitrarily into two groups according to baseline RRF (residual glomerular filtration rate [rGFR] <5or > 5 ml/min), then randomly received 12 months treatment with the study drugs( furosemide 120mg daily, 60mg daily, or no diuretic). Phase 3 is following-up phase, which lasts 1 year. Dialytic prescription is adjusted independent of the study and is guided by clinical parameters and calculated clearances (target creatinine clearance 65L/week, urea clearance Kt/V > 1.7 per week). Blood pressure is measured using an automated blood pressure device, and the target level is 135/85mmHg. The antihypertensive medication is introduced after the body weigh reduced into target level, and the ACEI and /or ARB selection is needed to the cross-sectional design. The hydration state is measured by bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA).
