Materials and Methods: In a cross sectional study of 217 CKD patients was enrolled and compared with age, sex, ethnic groups, vitamin D, calcium, phosphorus, and albumin from January 2015 to September 2018. We were analysed these variables by using SPSS. A 25 hydroxy vitamin D deficiency was defined as less than 10ng/ ml and insufficiency as 10 to 30 ng/ml. Result: Out of 217 chronic kidney Disease (CKD) patients, 42.9 % (93) male and 57.1 % (124) female Majority ethnic groups of 217 CKD patients, were 54 (25 %) Chhetri and 110 (51 %). whereas education level of CKD patients were 25 % Illiterate and 42 % primary level.

Mean of variables were age (48.29 15.46), Vitamin D (20.49 12.08), Phosphorus (4.36 1.09), Albumin (4.070.43). Out of 217 patients, 25 (OH) Vitamin D deficiency (
