PERITONEAL EQUILIBRIUM TEST (PET)

This assay is a formal evaluation of peritoneal membrane characteristics that measures the transfer rate of creatinine & glucose across the peritoneal membrane. Patients are classified as low, low-average, high-average and high transporters. High transporters tend to absorb more glucose and lose efficiency of ultrafiltration. They tend to loose large quantities of albumin and other proteins across the peritoneal membrane.
