Objective: This study was done to evaluate dialysis's impact on serum renalase and catecholamines (epinephrine, dopamine, and norepinephrine) in Kirkuk City patients with end-stage renal disease.

Method: The study was conducted at the Al-Amal Kidney Dialysis Unit in Kirkuk from December 1, 2023, to March 1, 2024. A total of 180 individuals were allocated into three distinct groups for the study. Initial participants in renal dialysis. The second group underwent a 4-hour dialysis treatment, whereas the third group consisted of healthy individuals without chronic renal disease. Before and after dialysis, Renalase and Catecholamine levels were assessed in all study participants.

Results: study results reveled to, after 4 hours from dialysis, patients with end stage renal disease exhibit improvement in the level of renalase enzyme comparing with renalase level before dialysis, while the level of catecholamines showed lowering in end stage renal disease patients after 4 hours from dialysis comparing with its levels before dialysis.

Conclusion: Dialysis elevated renalase levels, resulting in a reduction of circulating catecholamines such as epinephrine, norepinephrine, and dopamine. Patients suffering from advanced kidney failure and heart disease necessitate dialysis due to the ability of renalase to lower the levels of circulating catecholamines, thereby mitigating cardiovascular damage.
