BACKGROUND Vitamin D deficiency is found in the majority of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and may contribute to various chronic diseases. Current guidelines suggest correcting reduced 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] concentrations in CKD patients with an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) <60 mL/min/1.73 m(2). Whether low 25(OH)D levels in these patients are associated with higher mortality is unclear. This issue was addressed in the present work. METHODS We examined 444… CONTINUE READING
