  Purpose

This study will compare acid-base changes during hemodialysis treatments with a standard dialysis bath versus a lower bicarbonate dialysis bath, and aims to define the factors that limit equilibration of the bicarbonate concentration in a patient's blood with that in the dialysate.

Chronic Kidney Disease
Metabolic Acidosis
Other: Low bicarbonate dialysis
