To the Editor:

Thank you for good question and attention. First, second and fifth questions: many of patients received phosphate binders and cal­cium supplement, but we don't always able to goal according NKF DOQI guideline.

In these patients, normal calcium level was 8.5-10.5, and in the DGF group, the mean of calcium was a little more than other groups. Therefore, calcium level was within the normal range but upper limit of normal.

Third question: Underlying disorder in all of patients. This study included, hyperten­sion 24.4%, diabetes 12.2%, ADPKD 7.6%, glomerulonephritis 3.8%, lupus nephritis 1.8%, others (trauma, reflux nephropathy, alports syndrome, nephrolithiasis and anal­gesic nephropathy) 6.3%, and finally un­known etiology was 43.2%.

Fourth question: yes that's right.
