Health-related quality of life in haemodialysis patients suffering from chronic itch: results from GEHIS (German Epidemiology Haemodialysis Itch Study)

ConclusionsImpairments in HRQOL are a serious problem in HD patients. CI means an additional burden in affected patients, also impairing their HRQOL. GEHIS showed significant sex differences in HRQOL outcomes also in HD patients. CI and pain as well as sleep frequently occur combined and significantly impair HRQOL in HD patients. The care of HD patients should be complemented by psychosocial support and mental health services.

Authors: Marques E, Paluch Z, Boháč P, Slanař O, Běláček J, Hercogová J Abstract INTRODUCTION: Understanding how different comorbidities and epidemiological factors are related to psoriasis severity can help us estimating patients' clinical outcome. AIM: Establish possible prognostic factors of severe psoriasis. METHODS: Three groups of patients were included: 118 were on topical therapy, 83 used conventional systemic drugs and 112 were treated with biological agents. Based of the fact that patients on topical therapy have a lower grade of disease severity than patients treated syst...

Authors: Lam PH, Hon KL, Leung K, Leong KF, Li CK, Leung TF Abstract BACKGROUND: Atopic eczema (AE) is a common relapsing inflammatory skin disease in children which is often associated with chronicity and poor quality of life. Unlike atopic asthma, control of AE is seldom assessed in therapeutics. AIM: To investigate the utility of a Traffic Light Control (TLC) system as a measurement/assessment of self-perceived eczema control. METHODS: This is a prospectively study of all Chinese children (aged 6 to 18 years old) with eczema attending the paediatric dermatology clinic of a tertiary hospital from Jan to J...

Authors: Parnell LKS Abstract Chronic itch continues to be a problem that plagues millions of humans and animals. Pruritus has a negative impact on patient quality of life and many patients experience sleep deprivation, anxiety, and depression, similar to patients with chronic pain. This review provides an overview of clinical pruritus research with special emphasis on itch that wound care providers may see. In addition, the need for using multifactorial questionnaires for better research in pruritus is summarized. Similarities and differences in itch characteristics, triggers, and relievers in various patient popu...

Discussion Fatigue is a subjective feeling of decreased energy, tiredness or feeling of exhaustion. Lethargy is often used synonymously, but lethargy is a state of being drowsiness or sleepy, and implies mental status changes. Both can cause the person to be apathetic or less active. Fatigue is a common state that almost everyone experiences multiple times in his or her lifetime. For most people it is a relatively acute or short-term chronic problem, often with a relatively easily identifiable problem cause, such as inadequate sleep, acute illness, or overexertion. For some, it can be less readily identifiable such as dep...

Conclusion Doctors often assure parents that vaccines are safe, using phrases like “one in a million” and “rare” to describe adverse reactions. Yet, with sad stories like RD’s, thousands of adverse events reported to VAERS, and the creation of a special court for vaccine injuries, informed parents know those vaccine safety claims are simply not true. If you have not already done so, please consider the overall safety of vaccinations. A federal program has awarded billions of dollars, through an arduous, emotionally painful process, to people whose family members have suffered injury or death a...

When you have eliminated wheat and grains from your life, odd things happen when you get re-exposed. First of all, you’ve lost the partial–partial, never total–tolerance to some of the adverse effects of wheat and grains, and they come back with a vengeance upon re-exposure. And it’s not just due to the “gluten.” Those of you hanging around here understand that there is far more to wheat and grains than gluten, such as reactions to the bowel toxicity of wheat germ agglutinin, or the mind “fog” of gliadin-derived opiate peptides, or allergic reactions to alpha amylase inhibito...
