BACKGROUND Patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) are known to have insulin resistance. Treatment with EPO is associated with improvement in insulin sensitivity in uremic patients. The aim of this study was to compare insulin sensitivity and pancreatic B cell function in adult non-diabetic uremic hemodialysis patients treated with or without rHuEPO. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Three groups of subjects were included to the study: hemodialysis patients treated with rHuEPO [EPO(+) group] or… CONTINUE READING
