From: Malnutrition inflammation index in chronic haemodialysis patients with or without hepatitis C virus infection

ParameteraMean ± SDbP value
HCV-non-infectedHCV-infected
Creatinine (mg/dL)5.6 ± 0.35.9 ± 0.20.426
Blood urea (mg/dL)128.6 ± 5.7125.3 ± 6.60.709
S. sodium (mmol/L)142.1 ± 0.6142.3 ± 0.70.877
S. total calcium (mg/dL)8.3 ± 0.18.4 ± 0.10.378
