Higher Serum Phosphorus Predicts More Residual Function Loss—in Men Only
A retrospective analysis of 1,245 CAPD patients followed for up to 11 years divided participants into tertiles based on their baseline serum phosphorus levels. One third of patients lost residual renal function (RRF) during the study, and those with the highest baseline phosphorus levels had a 51% higher risk of RRF loss than those in tertiles 1 and 2 combined. The risk of RRF loss was significantly higher for men.
