Abstract

ASSOCIATION OF PARATHYROID HORMONE, CALCIUM AND PHOSPHORUS WITH HEMODIALYSIS PATIENTS

Nashwa Abdelelah Mohamed*, Mohamed Abd-El moneim Mahmoud, Ayman El-Baz El-Agroudy and Abdel-Aziz Fotouh Abdel-Aziz

ABSTRACT

This study included 65 hemodialysis patients (HD) and 25 healthy volunteers as normal control group. High level of iPTH is associated with low level of calcium (hypocalcemia) and high level of phosphorus (hyperphosphatemia) leads to development of secondary hyperparathyroidism (sHPT). This study estimated that the levels of calcium were significantly lower; on the other hand, the levels of serum phosphorus and iPTH were significantly higher in comparison with those in the control group. It was observed that there was a significant negative correlation between serum calcium and phosphorus levels in chronic renal failure patients. On the other hand, there was a significant positive correlation between serum iPTH and phosphorus levels in chronic renal failure patients.

Keywords: Hemodialysis, intact parathyroid hormone, Secondary hyperparathyroidism.
