The relationship between neutrophil lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet lymphocyte ratio (PLR), hemoglobin albumin lymphocyte and platelet (HALP) score and bone mineral density in Hemodialysis Patients
Aims: The aim of this study is to develop new indices from hemogram and biochemical parameters to evaluate bone mineral density in hemodialysis patients.
Methods: 49 patients who had been receiving hemodialysis for at least 6 months were included in the study. The patients were divided into three groups according to bone mineral density (BMD). Neutrophil lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet lymphocyte ratio (PLR) and hemoglobin albumin lymphocyte and platelet (HALP) score were compared between all three groups. The correlation between all three indices and lumbar and femur BMD scores was examined.
Results: No correlation was found between NLR, PLR and HALP score and lumbar and femur BMD.
Conclusion: As a result, we concluded that NLR, PLR and HALP score cannot be used as an auxiliary marker to detect osteoporosis in hemodialysis patients.
