Özet

Background and aim Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is an independent risk factor for the development of cardiovascular events and hypertension. The possible causes are oxygen desaturation due to hypopnea, increased cytokine levels and insulin resistance. All these risk factors also have a role in the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD). The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between OSAS and the severity of CKD.
