Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:
Hemodialysis is usually required for the patients with end-stage renal failure. In the hemodialysis patients, abnormal blood pressure is commonly seen. In addition, the abnormalities of blood biochemical components are also common in hemodialysis patients. Recently much attention has been directed toward the blood pressure level and serum uric acid concentration in hemodialysis patients. However, the result of studies are contradictory and the linkage between observed serum uric acid and blood pressure requires further investigation.
