BACKGROUND Hyperhomocysteinemia is an independent risk factor for the development of cardiovascular conditions in chronic stable renal-transplant recipients (RTR). Major determinants of plasma total homocysteine (tHcy) in RTR are renal function and folate levels. The data dealing with the possible regulation of the tHcy metabolism by insulin and nutritional status is conflicting in non-transplant populations. METHODS We examined the relationship between tHcy, insulin and nutritional status in… CONTINUE READING
