UNLABELLED ♦ BACKGROUND As an immune system regulator, vitamin D is commonly deficient among patients on peritoneal dialysis (PD), which may contribute to their impaired immune function and increased risk for PD-related peritonitis. In this study, we aimed to investigate whether vitamin D deficiency could predict the risk of peritonitis in a prospective cohort of patients on PD. ♦ METHODS We collected 346 prevalent and incident PD patients from 2 hospitals. Baseline demographic data and… CONTINUE READING
