Management of extracellular volume in patients with end-stage kidney disease and severe hyperglycemia.J Diabetes Complications. 2020 Aug; 34(8):107615.JD
This commentary addresses volume replacement in hyperglycemic crises in patients with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD). The management of volume issues in this group of patients should not be based on guidelines for management of hyperglycemic crises, but should be individualized and based on directed patient medical history, physical examination, and imaging of the heart and lungs. A scheme for combining information from these three sources is provided.
