We would like to thank Dr. Diskin for pro­viding additional information on the ever increasing interest in understanding the hemo­dialysis and its implications on the human milieu. This is more important since as Dr. Diskin has suggested that these subtle changes may represent ischemia. We would like to acknowledge that the important work done by Dr. Diskin [1],[2],[3] was missed in our discussion and his interest in our article has given us new avenues to work on. Since end stage renal disease patients have a lot of co­ morbidities; especially cardiac, such studies would result in devising dialysate solutions with minimal stress of the dialysis procedure.
