High-sensitivity CRP levels predict technique and patient survival on PD
High C-reactive protein (CRP) levels suggest inflammation. Among 402 PD patients followed for 2 years, those with the lowest CRP levels were more likely to still be on PD and had better survival. Each 1 mg/L increase in CRP predicted a 1.4% higher risk of mortality.
