Özet

OBJECTIVE: In peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients, a low level of serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular events. Hyperuricemia is also associated with an increased mortality rate in chronic kidney disease patients. The aim of our study was to determine whether there was a relationship between serum uric acid and 25-hydroxyvitamin D in PD patients.
