Bone mineral density and parathyroid function in patients on maintenance hemodialysis

Abstract

The relationship between parathyroid function, an important determinant of bone turnover, and bone mineral density (BMD) in patients with chronic kidney disease is not fully understood. We wanted to analyze the association between BMD and parathyroid function in hemodialysis patients in details. In a cross-sectional design, data from 270 patients (age 55… (More)
