Abstract

Hyperuricemia and metabolic acidosis have emerged as important risk factors for progression of kidney disease. In this study, we aimed to investigate the effects of allopurinol on metabolic acidosis and endothelial functions in hyperuricemic stage 2-4 chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients.
