Non-guideline-recommended prescribing of proton pump inhibitors: implications for the future and reducing over usage.

Non-guideline-recommended prescribing of proton pump inhibitors: implications for the future and reducing over usage. Curr Med Res Opin. 2017 Jul 20;:1-5 Authors: Godman B, Fadare J Abstract Drs Godman and Fadare review the paper by Mares-Garcia and colleagues in Spain regarding the extent of non-guideline recommended prescribing (NGRP) of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) in ambulatory care. NGRP of PPIs is an increasing public health concern given the implications of overuse of PPIs on infection rates, osteoporosis and chronic kidney disease as well as increasing polypharmacy rates. Costs are less of an issue especially where there are low prices for generic PPIs; the main focus is on improving the quality of PPI prescribing. Encouragingly, Mares-Garcia and colleagues identified key factors associated with NGRP, providing direction to others. PMID: 28724310 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractSummaryBisphosphonates are the most common treatment for osteoporosis but there are concerns regarding its use in CKD. We evaluated the frequency of BSP by eGFR categories among patients with osteoporosis from two healthcare systems. Our results show that 56% of patients were treated, with reduced odds in those with lower eGFR.IntroductionOsteoporosis is common in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Bisphosphonates (BSP) are the most common treatment but there are concerns regarding its efficacy and toxicity in CKD. We evaluated the frequency of BSP use by level of estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR...

Abstract Increasing knowledge on inflammatory mediators and bone metabolism highlights the relationship between inflammation and bone disease. During acute illness, inflammatory cells and cytokines modulate bone cells activity so as to mobilize calcium seemingly to supply the metabolic requirements for immune response. In case of long lasting, chronic inflammatory states a condition of maladaptive, smouldering inflammation is realized and negatively affects calcium bone balance. Aging, now nicknamed inflammaging, is regarded as a chronic inflammatory condition, characterized by increased circulating inflammatory c...

ConclusionsThe risk of a subsequent major non-hip fragility fractures following hip fracture was not increased in patients with CKD G3 –G5 compared to eGFR>  60 ml/min. Mortality risk was higher in both hip fracture and non-hip fracture patients with CKD G4 and G5. The higher mortality risk may, as competing risk, explain our main finding of no increased or even decreased subsequent fracture risk after a hip fracture in patients with CKD G3–G5.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis review aims to summarize the current evidence on the effect of very-low-, low-, and high-protein diets on outcomes related to chronic kidney disease-mineral and bone disorder (CKD-MBD) and bone health in patients with CKD.Recent FindingsDietary protein restriction in the form of low- and very-low-protein diets have been used to slow down the progression of CKD. These diets can be supplemented with alpha-keto acid (KA) analogues of amino acids. Observational and randomized controlled trials have shown improvements in biochemical markers of CKD-MBD, including reductions in phosphorus, parathyroi...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe molecular mechanisms of the bone disease associated with chronic kidney disease (CKD), called renal osteodystrophy (ROD), are poorly understood. New transcriptomics technologies may provide clinically relevant insights into the pathogenesis of ROD. This review summarizes current progress and limitations in the study and treatment of ROD, and in transcriptomics analyses of skeletal tissues.Recent FindingsROD is characterized by poor bone quality and strength leading to increased risk of fracture. Recent studies indicate permanent alterations in bone cell populations during ROD. Single-cell trans...

Osteoporosis-related fractures are undertreated, due in part to misinformation about recommended approaches to patient care and discrepancies among treatment guidelines. To help bridge this gap and improve patient outcomes, the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research assembled a multistakeholder coalition to develop clinical recommendations for the optimal prevention of secondary fractureamong people aged 65 years and older with a hip or vertebral fracture. The coalition developed 13 recommendations (7 primary and 6 secondary) strongly supported by the empirical literature. The coalition recommends increased communi...

The multiple endocrine functions of bone other than those related to mineral metabolism, such as regulation of insulin sensitivity, glucose homeostasis, and energy metabolism, have recently been discovered. In vitro and murine studies investigated the impact of several molecules derived from osteoblasts and osteocytes on glucose metabolism. In addition, the effect of glucose on bone cells suggested a mutual cross-talk between bone and glucose homeostasis. In humans, these mechanisms are the pivotal determinant of the skeletal fragility associated with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Metabolic abnormalities associated with...
