Classification of peritoneal transport function. Based on the peritoneal equilibrium test results, peritoneal transport function may be classified into average, high (H), and low (L) transport types. The average transport group is further subdivided into high-average (HA) and low-average (LA) types. For the population studied by Twardowski and coworkers [6], the transport classification is based on means; standard deviations (SDs); and minimum and maximum dialysate to plasma ratio (D/P) values over 4 hours for urea, creatinine, glucose, protein, potassium, sodium, and corrected creatinine (panels A- G).
