From: The dynamics of the metabolism of acetate and bicarbonate associated with use of hemodialysates in the ABChD trial: a phase IV, prospective, single center, single blind, randomized, cross-over, two week investigation

Acid concentrate Types (Catalog Number) NaturaLyte (08–2251-0) GranuFlo (0FD2251-3B)
Sodium (mEq/L) 100 100
Potassium (mEq/L) 2 2
Calcium (mEq/L) 2.5 2.5
Magnesium (mEq/L) 1 1
Acetate (mEq/L) 4 8
Chloride (mEq/L) 105.5 101.5
Dextrose (mg/dL) 100 100
  1. Acid concentrates were selected based on each individual patient’s standard of care hemodialysis prescription. One patient was prescribed NaturaLyte with a potassium bath of 3 mEq/L (08–3251-9)
  2. Acid concentrate constituents are expressed as acid portion only prior to the addition and reaction of NaturaLyte bicarbonate powder 4000 series or equivalent. For use with hemodialysis equipment capable of calibration for a mix ratio of 1:44 (also expressed as 45X or 1:1.72:42.28)
