Conclusion: Renal dysfunction is common among people living with hypertension in the Asutifi-South District of the Brong Ahafo Region. Femininity, older age, disease comorbidity with diabetes, Thiazide diuretic and AR Blocker usage, and increasing duration of medication accounted for higher kidney dysfunction. Regular screening and management are therefore recommended to avert progression to end-stage renal failure (ESRD). PMID: 30519488 [PubMed]

Conclusion: Fournier gangrene with extensive soft tissue necrosis and pre-existing chronic kidney disease was associated with poor prognosis and complexity of patient management. Early recognition of dissemination and premorbid renal function is essential to reduce mortality and establish a management plan for this disease. PMID: 30505824 [PubMed]

ConclusionsIn adults with CKD, WC is a better indicator of poor physical HRQOL than BMI. The association between WC and physical HRQOL is modified by age, sex, eGFR, and comorbidities such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Authors: Hornstrup BG, Gjoerup PH, Wessels J, Lauridsen TG, Pedersen EB, Bech JN Abstract Background: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is often associated with a blunted nocturnal BP decrease and OSA. However, it is not fully clear whether a relationship exists between reduction in renal function and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) on the one hand and relative nocturnal BP decrease in CKD patients on the other. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between nocturnal BP decrease and renal function, the degree of OSA, vasoactive hormones, and renal sodium handling in CKD3-4 patients and healthy age-match...

BACKGROUND:Currently, there are no data on the prevalence of breast arterial calcification (BAC) in Saudi women. Furthermore, there are no data on the relationship between BAC and coronary artery calcium score (CACS) as a coronary artery disease (CAD) risk factor in Saudi women who undergo mammography.  OBJECTIVE: Examine the role of BAC as a potential female-specific risk factor for CAD in Saudi women in order to investigate the relationship between BAC and CACS in women who undergo a screening mammography, and study the relationship between BAC and CAD risk factors, including age, diabetes mellitus, hypertensio...

AbstractThe major cause of death among chronic kidney disease patients is cardiovascular diseases. Cardiovascular and kidney disease are interrelated and increase the severity of each other. Dyslipidemia is one the major causes of cardiovascular disease among chronic kidney disease patients along with diabetes and hypertension. The relationship between dyslipidemia and chronic kidney disease is reciprocal. Dyslipidemia is known to be a risk factor for chronic kidney disease and chronic kidney disease causes major alterations on lipoprotein profile, defined as the “dyslipidemic profile” of chronic kidney disease...

Abstract INTRODUCTION: During the years, while treatment strategy for diabetes mellitus has improved, the incidence of diabetes worldwide increases continuously. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is one of the major diabetic microvascular complications, and a primary cause leading to end-stage renal disease (ESRD). The progression to ESRD, affected by hyperglycemia and hypertension, is characterized by microalbuminuria and macroalbuminuria. With advances in understanding the pathogenesis of CKD in diabetic patients, many novel therapeutic targets have been proposed, and the corresponding agents are being developed cont...

ConclusionNeutropenia and prior receipt of mold-active antifungal drugs before GM assay were independently associated with GM positivity among patients with proven/probable IPA. Angioinvasive aspergillosis was less common in GM-negative IPA than in GM-positive IPA.

Conclusion: Higher fasting blood glucose is an independent risk for developing hypertension. Further studies are needed to determine if treatment for elevated blood glucose can prevent developing hypertension.
