There is no difference in conventional HD / PD treatment for calcium tachyphylaxis. Theoretically, daily HD can reduce phosphate level and calcium phosphate product to very low level, therefore it may help treating calcium tachyphylaxis better. But studies are needed to confirm if it really makes a difference.
