Nutritional markers, not markers of bone turnover, are related predictors of bone mineral density in chronic peritoneal dialysis patients.

BACKGROUND AND AIMS this study evaluated the factors associated with bone mineral density (BMD) in chronic peritoneal dialysis (CPD) patients. METHODS in this cross-sectional study in 91 stable CPD patients, BMD was measured using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry. Markers of bone turnover (iPTH, osteocalcin, bone alkaline phosphatase, serum C-telopeptide… (More)
