Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine whether cholecalciferol supplementation decrease the blood concentrations of hepcidin-25 in hemodialysis patients.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Kidney Failure, Chronic Anemia Vitamin D Deficiency Bone Diseases, Metabolic Dietary Supplement: Cholecalciferol Dietary Supplement: Olive oil Phase 4

Detailed Description:
There are 4 arms in this study: (1) Thrice-weekly cholecalciferol supplementation (3,000 IU), (2) Monthly cholecalciferol supplementation (equivalent to 9,000/week), (3) Thrice-weekly placebo, and (4) Monthly placebo. The primary analyses will be done regarding 2 cholecalciferol groups and 2 placebo groups as one group each, and we will evaluate the effect of cholecalciferol regardless of the supplementation regimen. As the secondary analyses, we will examine if there is any difference between thrice-weekly and once-monthly supplementation regimen.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Serum concentrations of hepcidin-25 [ Time Frame: The 3rd month ]
  2. Serum concentrations of hepcidin-25 [ Time Frame: The 3rd day ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Serum concentrations of hepcidin-25 [ Time Frame: The 6th month ]
  2. Percent change of erythropoietin resistance index (ERI) overtime [ Time Frame: Up to the 6th month ]
    ERI = Average weekly dose of erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESA) over prior 4 weeks / post-dialysis body weight (kg) / Hb (g/dL)

  3. Blood concentrations of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D, bone specific alkaline phosphatase (BAP), and tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase (TRAcP) 5b [ Time Frame: The 3rd month ]
    In the secondary analysis, we will adjust baseline concentrations when comparing the groups.

  4. Blood concentrations of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D, bone specific alkaline phosphatase (BAP), and tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase (TRAcP) 5b [ Time Frame: The 6th month ]
    In the secondary analysis, we will adjust baseline concentrations when comparing the groups.

  5. Blood concentrations of high-sensitive C reactive protein (CRP), interleukin (IL)-6, and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha [ Time Frame: The 3rd day ]
    In the secondary analysis, we will adjust baseline concentrations when comparing the groups.

  6. Blood concentrations of high-sensitive C reactive protein (CRP), interleukin (IL)-6, and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha [ Time Frame: The 3rd month ]
    In the secondary analysis, we will adjust baseline concentrations when comparing the groups.

  7. Blood concentrations of high-sensitive C reactive protein (CRP), interleukin (IL)-6, and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha [ Time Frame: The 6th month ]
    In the secondary analysis, we will adjust baseline concentrations when comparing the groups.

  8. Blood concentrations of calcium, phosphate, and intact parathyroid hormone overtime [ Time Frame: Up to the 6th month ]
    In the secondary analysis, we will adjust baseline concentrations when comparing the groups.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Hypercalcemia [ Time Frame: Up to the 6th month ]
    >=10.5 mg/dL of albumin corrected calcium
