Abstract

Aim: Nephrotic syndrome is a common type of kidney disease during childhood characterized by proteinuria, edema and hypoalbuminemia. Serum asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) inhibits vascular nitric oxide production and may be an independent risk factor for coronary heart disease. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between ADMA and atherosclerotic risk factors in children with nephrotic syndrome.
