Dear Editor,

Greetings from Colombia!

It was a pleasure to read your article “Differential Molecular Modeling Predictions of Mid and Conventional Dialysate Flows (Qd)”.

Minimization of Qd is a matter of interest for our group not only in terms of dialysis efficiency and patient safety but also in terms of reduction of wastage in water.

Since 2012, we have been prescribing Qd 400 mL/min for small patients, and we have already shared our experience [1, 2].

We have performed 2 in vivo comparative trials between Qd 400 and 500 mL/min with polynephron membranes with a thrice-a-week, 4-h hemodialysis (HD) scheme for patients with weight
