Total 25(OH) vitamin D, free 25(OH) vitamin D and markers of bone turnover in cirrhotics with and without synthetic dysfunction.

Abstract

BACKGROUND & AIMS Current clinical assays for total 25-hydroxy (OH) vitamin D measure vitamin D bound to vitamin D-binding protein (DBP) and albumin plus unbound ('free') D. We investigated the relationship between total and free 25(OH)D with bone metabolism markers in normal (>3.5 g/dl) vs. low (≤3.5 g/dl) albumin cirrhotics. METHODS Eighty-two… (More)
