Peritoneal Dialysis prolongs life expectancy, but its complications increase hospitalization. Incremental Peritoneal Dialysis (PDI) starts with a reduced dialysis dose which added to residual renal function (RRF) reaches the purification target (Kt/V 1.7). When RRF decreases, the dialisi doe must be increate to keep on the purification target; this goal needs a strict clinical control to avoid that intercurrent diseases/drug effects could reduce RRF with negative effects on metabolic homeostasis. Aim of this study is to compare the results in incident PDI patients to PD patients as far as efficacy and safety are concerned. Efficacy indices: maintaining of Kt/V and metabolic, nutritional targets and erythropoietin resistance index. Safety indices: peritonitis incidence, patient survival, hospitalization
