Relationship of insulin resistance to vitamin d status in children with nondiabetic chronic kidney disease.

This study aimed to investigate the association of IR and 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels. In this study, we evaluated the frequency of IR in predialysis patients and the association with 25-hydroxyvitamin (OH)D levels. A total of 32 non-diabetic patients with predialysis were included in the study. Homeostasis model assessment for insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) index was calculated to show presence of IR. Data were analyzed with the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) program version 13.0 (SPSS Inc, Chicago, Ill, USA) using the Chi-square, Student t-test, and logistic regression analysis. Nineteen of 32 subjects (59.4%) were detected to have IR. There was no consistent relationship was detected between IR and glomerular filtration rate, body mass index, and blood pressure in chronic kidney disease (CKD). However; significant difference was detected in 25(OH)D levels with IR in CKD (P = 0.49). The regression analysis showed that 25(OH)D was an independent predictor of IR with an odds ratio of 1.2. In our study, we demonstrated that IR was high in different stages of CKD. Insulin-resistance in non-diabetic CKD was correlated with 25(OH)D levels. 25(OH) vitamin D levels can play a significant role in the development of IR in pediatric patients with CKD. This is important for the early detection and intervention of vitamin D deficiency thereby preventing potentially future complications related to IR. PMID: 28937066 [PubMed - in process]

FOXP3 (Forkhead box protein P3), a member of the forkhead–winged-helix family, is the pivotal transcriptional factor of Treg. The expression, post-translational modifications and protein complex of FOXP3 present a great impact on the functional stability and immune plasticity of Treg in vivo. In part...

This article reviews the state of the art and major unanswered questions related to ocular vascular anatomy and physiology, ocular imaging techniques, clinical findings in glaucoma and other eye diseases, and mechanistic modeling predictions, while laying a path for integrating clinical observations with mathematical models and artificial intelligence. Viable alternatives for integrated data analysis are proposed that aim to overcome the limitations of standard statistical approaches and enable individually tailored precision medicine in ophthalmology.

Authors: Han SA, Park HY, Kim HW, Choi JI, Kang DY, Kim HL, Chung JH, Shin BC Abstract Acute toxic-metabolic encephalopathy (TME) is an acute condition of global cerebral dysfunction in the absence of primary structural brain disease. Severe hypophosphatemia leads to muscle weakness and involves the diaphragm but hypophosphatemia-induced TME is very rare. Herein, we report the case of a 43-year-old woman with encephalopathy with severe hypophosphatemia during continuous renal replacement therapy. She presented with features of oliguric acute kidney injury on diabetic kidney disease due to volume depletion. At admis...

This study aimed to evaluate the vitamin D status and its association with body adiposity, CVD risk factors, estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and proteinuria in RTR, living in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (a low-latitude city (22°54'10"S)), taking into account body adiposity evaluated by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). This cross-sectional study included 195 RTR (114 men) aged 47·6 (sd 11·2) years. Nutritional evaluation included anthropometry and DXA. Risk factors for CVD were hypertension, diabetes mellitus, dyslipidaemia and the metabolic syndrome. eGFR was evaluated using the Chronic...

AbstractKidney transplant is the treatment of choice for end-stage chronic kidney disease. Kidneys generate 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (calcitriol) from 25-hydroxyvitamin D (calcidiol) for circulation in the blood to regulate calcium levels. Transplant patients with low calcidiol levels have an increased risk of metabolic and endocrine problems, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes mellitus, poor graft survival, bone disorders, cancer, and mortality rate. The recommended calcidiol level after transplant is at least 30  ng/mL (75 nmol/L), which could require 1000–3000 IU/d vitamin D3 to achieve. Vitamin...

This study teaches us that poor wound healing and wrinkling and sagging that occur in aging skin share similar mechanisms." Reduced cell cohesiveness of outgrowths from eccrine sweat glands delays wound closure in elderly skin Human skin heals more slowly in aged vs. young adults, but the mechanism for this delay is unclear. In humans, eccrine sweat glands (ESGs) and hair follicles underlying wounds generate cohesive keratinocyte outgrowths that expand to form the new epidermis. Our results confirm that the outgrowth of cells from ESGs is a major feature of repair in young skin. Strikingly, in aged s...
