Elevated FGF 23 and phosphorus are associated with coronary calcification in hemodialysis patients

Abstract

Increased mortality of adult chronic hemodialysis (HD) patients is associated with coronary calcifications (CC), increased serum phosphorus (P), use of calcium (Ca)-containing P-binders, and vitamin D deficiency. Serum concentration of fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF 23) is markedly elevated in adults receiving dialysis and is independently associated with… (More)
