The sigmoidal parathyroid hormone-ionized calcium curve and the set point of calcium in hemodialysis and continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis.


A high incidence of adynamic bone disease not related to aluminum intoxication has been reported in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). Since reduced parathyroid hormone (PTH) secretion may predispose to adynamic bone, we investigated whether parathyroid gland sensitivity may be depressed in CAPD in comparison with hemodialysis (HD). Thus we… (More)
