This study assessed the psychosocial well-being and quality of life (QoL) of caregivers of CKD patients in two hospitals in Southern Nigeria. Methods: Burden of caregiving, QoL, depression, and anxiety were assessed using standardized instruments; modified Zarit questionnaire, modified SF-12 questionnaire and Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) respectively among caregivers of CKD patients on maintenance haemodialysis and controls. Results: Fifty-seven caregivers of CKD patients and aged and sex-matched controls participated in the study. Anxiety was significantly higher in caregivers compared to control (...

CONCLUSION: Genetic testing of presymptomatic patients for ADTKD is reasonable when requested. This study provides reassurance regarding the impact on QOL of the increased use of genetic testing to diagnose kidney disease. ADTKD has a significant impact on QOL, with depression, not anxiety, being more prevalent in affected individuals.

Authors: Chiu LW, Lin KY, Chang CY, Lin WC, Wan L Abstract Objective: To evaluate the suicide rate among patients oophorectomized for benign conditions and its association with confounding comorbidities. Method: We conducted a population-based, retrospective cohort study of women aged ≥20 years that underwent oophorectomy including unilateral or bilateral in laparotomy or laparoscopy for benign conditions during 2000-2013. A total of 145,588 oophorectomized and 582,352 non-oophorectomized women were included with an average follow-up time of 7 years. The comorbidities assessed were hypertension (HT...

Neuropsychiatric conditions including depression, anxiety disorders and cognitive impairment are common in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). These conditions often make worse the quality of life and also lead to longer hospitalizations and higher mortality. Over the past decades, some hypotheses have tried to explain the connection between CKD and neuropsychiatric disorders. The most common hypothesis is based on the occurrence of cerebrovascular disease and accumulated uremic toxins in adult patients with CKD. However, the lack of a direct association between known vascular risk factors like diabetes and hyperte...

Publication date: Available online 1 August 2019Source: American Journal of Kidney DiseasesAuthor(s): David A. Drew, Daniel E. Weiner, Mark J. SarnakPatients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are at substantially higher risk for developing cognitive impairment compared with the general population, and both lower glomerular filtration rate and the presence of albuminuria are associated with the development of cognitive impairment and poorer cognitive function. Given the excess of vascular disease seen in individuals with CKD, cerebrovascular disease is likely the predominant pathology underlying these associations, though i...
