Abstract

Associations between 25 hydroxy vitamin D [25(OH)D], adipokines levels, and insulin resistance have been reported. The aim of this study was to explore the effects of cholecalciferol supplementation on vitamin D levels, insulin resistance, leptin, and adiponectin levels in vitamin D-deficient peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients.
