    Background: The secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) develops early in the course of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and becomes more prominent as kidney function declines. This study aimed at evaluation of the predictors of SHPT in stage 3 and 4 chronic CKD from two Hospitals in Basrah. Patients and Methods: A cross-sectional observational study in two hospitals in Basrah, from February to September 2016, involving treatment free predialysis 18-69 years patients of stage 3 and 4 CKD, with eGFR of (15- 59 ml/min/1.73 m2), and not known to have primary hyperparathyroidism. This study involved 84 patients with CKD equal gender distribution. There were 40 patients in stage 3 and 44 patients in stage 4 CKD. Then we measure hemoglobin (Hb), mean corpuscular volume (MCV), 25-hydroxyvitamin D, creatinine, calcium, phosphate, and parathyroid h.. Read More»
