Different risk factors for peripheral vascular calcification between diabetic and non-diabetic haemodialysis patients – importance of glycaemic control

Abstract

Abstract Aim/hypothesis. Although derangements of calcium and phosphate control have been emphasized as important risk factors for vascular calcification in non-diabetic haemodialysis patients, similar risk factors for diabetic haemodialysis patients are not known. We compared factors affecting peripheral vascular calcification between haemodialysis… (More)
