Title: Determination of Parathyroid Hormone, Total Calcium and Phosphorus in Patients with Chronic Renal Failure
Author: Ahmed, Mohammed
Abstract: This study was conducted in Department of Biochemistry, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine. Samples were collected from Ahmed Gasim Hospital, Cardiac Surgery and Renal Transplantation Center, Haemodialysis Unit, in the period from April to May 2005, to determine the parathyroid hormone levels, total calcium levels and phosphorus levels in patients with chronic renal failure. Fourty patients with chronic renal failure were selected for this study. Their ages range from (18-78 years), including 31 males, 9 females, the duration of dialysis ranged from (6-48 months). The study also included 20 healthy personnel subjects as control group. Sera were analyzed for parathyroid hormone concentration, total calcium concentration and phosphorus concentration. The results showed that the parathyroid hormone level was significantly (P <0.05) increased in the patients group compared to the control. Total calcium concentration was significantly (P<0.05) decreased in the patients group compared to the control, 57.5% with hypocalcemia, 20% within the normal range and 22.5% with hypercalcemia. Phosphorus concentration was significantly (P<0.05) increased in the patients group compared to the control, 52.5% were within the normal range, 47.5% with increased level (hyperphosphatemia), and no one observed with hypophosphatemia.
