Hall A

Session description
Electrolytes and acid-base disturbances are frequently encountered complications in patients with chronic kidney disease. However, how best to manage some of these disturbances remain uncertain. In this session, we will provide focused discussions on 3 controversial aspects in managing electrolytes and acid-base disturbances.
Learning objectives
This session will review and discuss the many controversies we encounter in managing electrolytes and acid base disturbances in chronic kidney disease. Our discussions will aim to:
Understand if magnesium is an emerging treatment target in vascular calcification, a highly prevalent burden in CKD. Discuss the current controversies with potassium management in CKD and provide a case to challenge the current concept of potassium restriction in CKD. Review the controversies in managing metabolic acidosis in CKD in terms of target bicarbonate level, diet and drug treatment and if they make any difference to clinical outcomes in CKD.
