OBJECTIVES We sought to investigate the interaction of adiponectin levels and body mass index (BMI) for predicting all-cause mortality in a cohort of hemodialysis (HD) patients. DESIGN Longitudinal, observational cohort study. SETTING HD unit. SUBJECTS Sixty patients (mean age: 64 ± 13 years, 39 men) with end-stage renal disease on maintenance HD followed up for 4.5 years represented the prospective study cohort. INTERVENTION Associations between baseline plasma adiponectin levels and… CONTINUE READING
