Abstract

Patients who received kidney transplantation, vitamin D deficiency is probable due to deficient sun exposure and the lag between transplant and normal kidney function. In this study, serum level of vitamin D was assessed in patients with kidney transplantation and normal population. All transplant patients in 5 Azar hospital and clinics of Gorgan were recruited. The results show that among kidney transplant receivers and control subjects, 55.1% and 2% had significantly 25-hydroxyvitamin D deficiency, 42.9% and 63.3% significantly 25-hydroxyvitamin D insufficiency, respectively. In kidney transplant receivers, there was one person with normal 25-hydroxyvitamin D level. The time passed from the transplantation had no significant effects on serum level of vitamin D and was lower in those with higher time passed. It could be concluded that there is high prevalence of 25-hydroxyvitamin D insufficiency and deficiency after kidney transplantation (98% of our patients), without considering of transplantation time. In accord with recent informs, we suggest it very necessary that status of vitamin D deficiency/insufficiency are corrected in kidney transplant patients. Hence, supplementing of vitamin D appeared to be the only possible ways of making better and correcting vitamin D status in kidney transplant receivers. © IDOSI Publications, 2012.
