Alkali Therapy in Chronic Kidney Disease
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of oral sodium bicarbonate on muscle strength and function, bone breakdown, insulin resistance, and kidney damage in people with chronic kidney disease. Interested individuals will come in for a visit to learn about the study and to determine eligibility. If eligible, participants will be randomly assigned to receive either sodium bicarbonate pills or placebo pills for a duration of 2 years. Participants will perform tests of muscle strength and will have measurements of bone density, as well as insulin sensitivity and kidney function. Those interested may be eligible for further testing of muscle function and responsiveness to insulin.
