Prevalence of Vitamin D & Renal Dysfunction in Metabolic Syndrome
Background: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is characterized by a progressive loss of renal function that often leads to end-stage renal disease (ESRD), high risk for cardiovascular disease, and high mortality [1,2]. CKD is a growing global health problem due to increased prevalence worldwide. In the United States, the prevalence of CKD was estimated to be 11% based on data from the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III).
Methods: The case control study was carried out in the Departments of Biochemistry and Medicine of Heritage institute of Medical Sciences Varanasi. Duration of this study was six month.
Results: Twenty five patients each of hypovitaminosis & have chronic kidney disease in age group 31-60 years were included as cases. The prevalence of vitamin D status was low in control group as well as case group.
Conclusion: Treatment with active vitamin D or its analogues shows Reno protective effects by preventing fibrosis, apoptosis, and inflammation in various experimental models. Furthermore, vitamin D deficiency or insufficiency is a common condition in pre-dialysis or dialysis patients with CKD, and serum levels of vitamin D appear to be inversely correlated with kidney function.
