Aim. To analyze the prevalence of hyperuricemia in patients with stage 5 CKD treated with hemodialysis (HD) and to determine the relationship of pineal dysfunction with impaired purine metabolism. Object and methods. 130 people (50% of men) aged 58.5 were surveyed [43; 66] years on permanent hemodialysis treatment. Controls were 20 healthy individuals. The determination of daytime and nighttime levels of melatonin (MT) in saliva, based on the level of which, a group of patients with impaired MFE was isolated. Clinical and laboratory studies were carried out for all patients: general and biochemical blood tests with determination of uric acid level, office blood pressure (BP) measurements were performed. Results. Significant prevalence of MFE disorders in patients with stage 5 CKD treated with hemodialysis and its relationship to hyperuricemia has been identified. Analysis of uric acid (UC) levels between hemodialysis patients with stage 5 CKD and practically healthy subjects showed a higher value of 29.2% for patients with renal replacement therapy (NRT) (p <0.001). Conclusion. For patients with stage 5 CKD undergoing hemodialysis, there is a frequent violation of MFE (84.6%) and significant disorders of purine metabolism (74.6%). The analysis of the result of the study of purine metabolism showed more profound disorders in patients with impaired MFE, which may indicate a link between epiphysis dysfunction and hyperuricemia in patients with NRT. In patients with hemodialysis, disorders of purine metabolism are age-dependent and are determined by the duration of NRT, the experience of hypertension, hemoglobin levels, and MT levels. We have identified a relationship between impaired purine metabolism and MTF disturbance by daytime and nighttime MT.
