Özet

OBJECTIVE: Proteinuria is an important marker that accelerates chronic kidney disease. Known anti-proteinuric treatments are not always sufficient. In recent years, animal studies have shown that vitamin D has positive effects on inflammation in the kidney, glomerulosclerosis, interstitial fibrosis. The aim of our study was to investigate the effect of vitamin D on proteinuria in patients with proteinuric chronic kidney disease (CKD).
