Abstract

The Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative (K/DOQI) clinical practice guidelines in chronic kidney disease (CKD) give some recommendations about diagnosis and treatment of vitamin D deficiency. These guidelines may also be applied to renal transplant recipients. The aim of the present study was to assess the vitamin D status and the effects of vitamin D3 supplements among a cohort of kidney graft recipients.
