Özet

OBJECTIVE: Secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) and anemia are the primary and most common complications in patients receiving hemodialysis (HD). Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) is a new marker to assess iron deficiency and manage iron therapy for HD patients. The aim of this study was to determine any association between serum NGAL level and anemia without iron deficiency in patients with SHPT on chronic HD.
