How the dialysis dose is normalized is just one of several assumptions that clinicians need to take into account when prescribing peritoneal dialysis. El-Kateb et al. confirm that estimating the volume of urea distribution is associated with significant error and show that energy expenditure is not linearly related to volume, such that there is a potential need for a higher dialysis prescription in smaller, more active individuals.
