Özet

Background: High glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA(1c)) levels are recognized as a risk factor for cardiovascular disease in the diabetic dialysis population. However, it is not known whether this also applies to nondiabetic dialysis patients. We prospectively investigated the association between HbA(1c) levels and new cardiovascular events in nondiabetic patients treated with peritoneal dialysis.
