Acute effects of hemodialysis on salivary flow rate and composition



Acute effects of hemodialysis on salivary flow rate and composition



Clinical Nephrology 67(1): 25-31



To evaluate acute effects of hemodialysis (HD) on the salivary flow rate, pH and biochemical composition before, during and after completion of a dialysis session. Unstimulated whole saliva (UWS) and chewing-stimulated whole saliva (CH-SWS) were collected in 94 HD patients. Salivary flow rate, pH, concentrations of total protein, albumin, cystatin C, secretory immunoglobulin A (S-IgA) and of sodium, potassium and urea were measured. HD had an acute stimulating effect on the salivary flow rate (UWSbefore = 0.30+/-0.22 ml/min, UWSduring = 0.39+/-0.25 ml/min, p < 0.005). The mean pH of UWS showed a small but significant increase during HD mainly due to an increased watery secretion from the salivary glands. The salivary biochemical constituents changed markedly, but no significant difference in output was found. The electrolyte concentration did not change significantly during dialysis. The level of urea in CH-SWS declined to 40% (Ureabefore = 25.+/-6.4 mmol/l, Ureaduring = 15.3+/-4.5 mmol/1). This study shows that HD has significant acute effects on both salivary secretion rate and protein concentrations in saliva. We conclude that the observed changes in salivary concentrations and proteins are mainly due to an increased watery secretion from the salivary glands.
