BACKGROUND Insulin resistance is an independent predictor of cardiovascular mortality in hemodialysis (HD) patients. Inflammation plays an important role in insulin resistance, and adipocytokines, including tumor necrosis factor-alpha and leptin, can induce insulin resistance. However, data on insulin resistance and erythropoietin responsiveness in HD patients are lacking. METHODS We conducted a prospective, observational cohort study to clarify the relationship between insulin resistance and… CONTINUE READING
