Hypomagnesemia in Hemodialysis Patients: Role of Proton Pump Inhibitors.

Hypomagnesemia in Hemodialysis Patients: Role of Proton Pump Inhibitors. Am J Nephrol. 2014 Feb 21;39(3):204-209 Authors: Alhosaini M, Walter JS, Singh S, Dieter RS, Hsieh A, Leehey DJ Abstract Background: Recent observations have associated hypomagnesemia with increased risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in hemodialysis patients. Methods: We did a 3-month chart review of 62 chronic hemodialysis patients at a single US hospital. All were dialyzed using a dialysate [Mg] of 0.75-1.0 mEq/l. Patients were divided into two groups: hypomagnesemic (mean predialysis plasma [Mg]

AbstractThis meta-analysis was conducted to compare skin autofluorescence (SAF) levels as a measure of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) accumulation between diabetic and non-diabetic dialysis patients. Relevant studies were identified primarily by searching PubMed/MEDLINE and other online databases and manual searching of cross-references. Random-effects model was used to obtain standardized mean differences (SMD) as a summary statistic. Heterogeneity was tested with meta-regression and sub-group analyses. Publication bias and robustness of this meta-analysis were tested using funnel plot and sensitivity analyses. A ...

Conclusions: Our preliminary evidence suggests that higher symptom burden, assessed by ESASr may predict higher risk of healthcare use amongst patients with end stage kidney disease on hemodialysis. Future studies need to confirm the findings of this preliminary study and to assess the utility of ESASr for systematic symptom screening. PMID: 32506997 [PubMed - in process]

In conclusion, careful monitoring of patients in the early stages of CKD would result in lower morbidity and mortality. These objectives can be achieved by implementing screening programs and early interventions. PMID: 32509001 [PubMed]

Authors: Sugano N, Maruyama Y, Ohno I, Wada A, Shigematsu T, Masakane I, Yokoo T, Nitta K Abstract BACKGROUND: Unlike the situation in the general population, most studies of patients receiving hemodialysis have reported lower uric acid (UA) as associated with higher mortality. However, the relationship between UA level and mortality remains unclear among patients receiving peritoneal dialysis (PD). METHODS: We collected baseline data for 4742 prevalent PD patients (age, 63 ± 14 years; male, 61.5%; diabetes, 29.1%; median dialysis duration, 28 months) from a nationwide dialysis registry in Japan at the e...

AbstractCOVID-19 is a viral disease due to the infection of the novel Corona virus SARS-CoV-2, that has rapidly spread in many countries until the World Health Organization declared the pandemic from March 11, 2020. Elderly patients and those affected by hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and chronic pulmonary and cardiovascular conditions are more susceptible to present more severe forms of COVID-19. These conditions are often represented in dialytic renal end-stage patients. Moreover, dialysis patients are more vulnerable to infection due to suppression of the immune system. Growing evidences, although still supported by f...

ConclusionOnly 46.875% of the hemodialysis patients with COVID-19 had fever in the early stage; and diabetics may be the most susceptible population. A decrease in blood lymphocyte count and ground-glass opacity on chest CT scan is beneficial in identifying the high-risk population.

Authors: Silva APR, Strogoff-de-Matos JP, Lugon JR Abstract INTRODUCTION: Metabolic acidosis is associated with the high mortality seen in hemodialysis patients. The panorama of metabolic acidosis in hemodialysis in Brazil is unclear since 1996 when the analysis of bicarbonate levels was no longer a compulsory exam. We aimed to establish the prevalence of metabolic acidosis in a hemodialysis population and analyze the factors associated with low bicarbonate levels. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was carried out to assess the prevalence of metabolic acidosis in adults undergoing regular hemodialysis from Janua...
