|Abstract:||BackgroundVitamin D deficiency is common in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and can cause skeletal and extraskeletal complications. The purpose of this study is to determine the clinical and demographic risk factors for vitamin D deficiency in multiethnic CKD patients in Singapore, a sun-rich country, so that patients at risk can be identified and treated early. MethodsPre-dialysis CKD patients from the National University Hospital (NUH), Singapore, Outpatient Renal Clinic who had their serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] levels measured between January 2008 and October 2010 were included. Their clinical and demographic parameters were collected from hospital databases and medical charts. Logistic regression was used to identify potential predictors for vitamin D deficiency in these patients. Two models, Mt30 and Mt16, were built using threshold serum 25(OH)D levels of ≤30 and|
