BACKGROUND Plasma levels of total homocysteine (tHcy) and free amino acids (AAs) are influenced by nutritional status in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), whereas the role of chronic inflammation is not clear. METHODS In a cross-sectional analysis, fasting levels of plasma tHcy, total cysteine (tCys), AA, serum albumin (Alb), and several inflammation markers, including C-reactive protein (CRP), were analyzed in a cohort of 250 patients with CKD starting renal replacement therapy… CONTINUE READING
