Özet

Serum levels of amylase and lipase are frequently increased in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Relatively low serum pancreatic enzyme levels in CKD may represent a state of pancreatic insufficiency and may contribute to protein-energy wasting (PEW). We aimed to investigate the relationships of serum pancreatic enzyme levels with PEW, inflammation, and mortality in CKD patients.
