Diuretics play an important role in volume management of ESRD patients receiving peritoneal dialysis. Moreover, trials such as CANUSA have shown that residual renal function (RRF) is important in decreasing mortality in PD patients. This trial addresses whether loop diuretics can both manage total body volume and preserve RRF in peritoneal dialysis patients.
