BACKGROUND Advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) accumulate in uraemia, regardless of hyperglycaemic conditions, and may contribute to the onset of some long-term complications, such as atherosclerosis, amyloidosis, and neurodegenerative processes. In this study, we compare a daily with a standard 3 times/week dialysis rhythm (DHD and SHD, respectively) in correcting some protein glycation indices in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients. METHODS Twenty-one normoglycaemic and 11 diabetic… CONTINUE READING
