Significantly higher risks of hip fracture were found for female gender and intracerebral hemorrhagic stroke patients. INTRODUCTION Previous studies reported(More)
The risk of cardiovascular death is 10 times higher in patients with CKD (chronic kidney disease) than in those without CKD. Vascular calcification, common in patients with CKD, is a predictor of cardiovascular mortality. Vitamin D deficiency, another complication of CKD, is associated with vascular calcification in patients with CKD. GFR decline,(More)
