Summary

The effect of peritonitis on glucose uptake from peritoneal dialysis fluid was studied in 14 patients undergoing CAPD. No difference was noted between diabetic and nondiabetic patients. Glucose absorption increased significantly with peritonitis, however, causing a sustained elevation in plasma glucose concentration and a more rapid dissipation of the osmotic gradient.
