Brief Summary:

This is a prospective, randomized, double-blind, parallel group trial to assess the efficacy and safety of intravenous dextrose 5% solution compare with normal saline (standard care) in wash back procedure during haemodialysis in patients with end stage renal failure (ESRF) with respect to systolic blood pressure control over 3 months period.

The primary objective is to establish efficacy of 5% dextrose solution compared with normal saline (0.9% sodium chloride solution) with respect to systolic blood pressure control in subjects with end stage renal failure (ESRF) on regular hemodialysis. Secondary objectives include monitoring the change in body weight, thirst level and body fluid volume.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Normal saline
Normal saline will be used for wash back procedure at the end of hemodiaysis.
Drug: normal saline
Experimental: dextrose 5%
Dextrose 5% will be used for wash back procedure at the end of hemodiaysis.
Drug: Dextrose 5%

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. systolic blood pressure control [ Time Frame: Time from week 0 until week 12 ]
    post intervention systolic blood pressure reduction compared to baseline

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Interdialytic weight gain [ Time Frame: Time from week 0 until week 12 ]
    reduced Interdialytic weight gain in experimental group

  2. thirst level [ Time Frame: Time from week 0 and week 12 ]
    Dialysis thirst inventory questionnaire to be administer by patient at baseline (week 0) and end of trial (week 12)

  3. intradialytic event [ Time Frame: Time from week 0 until week 12 ]
    Any incident occuring during hemodialysis treatment which needed medical intervention. The event are chills and rigor, chest pain, giddiness, cramps, vomiting, blood loss and hypotension.

  4. adverse events [ Time Frame: Time from week 0 until week 12 ]
    All observed or spontaneously reported adverse events occur during the trial period.
