BACKGROUND/AIMS The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in hemodialysis (HD) patients and the relationship between seasonal variations in vitamin D levels and vascular calcification. METHODS As a prospective observational study, we analyzed 289 HD patients. We have assessed serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25D) levels at the end of the summer (September) and winter (March) and analyzed the data to reveal the association of serum 25D level with vascular… CONTINUE READING
