In patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD), the 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 (25(OH)D3) level is known to be lower compared to that of the normal population. In the present study, we evaluated the influences of dialysis methods on the serum 25(OH)D3 level in patients with ESRD who are treated with hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.
