  1. Values are presented as means ± standard deviation or medians (interquartile range) for continuous variables and count (percentage) for categorical variables. Enrolled patients were divided into lower peritoneal UA clearance (≤39.8 L/week/1.73m2) and higher peritoneal UA clearance (> 39.8 L/week/1.73m2) group according to its median level
