Learning Problems May Accompany Kidney Disease

FRIDAY, Feb. 23, 2018 -- Chronic kidney disease may affect brain function in children and teens, especially those on dialysis, researchers say. Results of their study review suggest academic assistance may be needed in specific areas, including...

Conclusion: A comprehensive survey of ESRD patients in a geographical area of 2 million residents identified one undiagnosed case of Fabry disease and led to the identification of 8 additional cases among his relatives. Screening protocols starting from the dialysis population and upstream extended to families of affected individuals may be an effective strategy to maximize the early identification of subjects with Fabry disease.Kidney Blood Press Res 2018;43:1344 –1351

Abstract Since the inception of hemodialysis (HD) for patients with chronic kidney disease, the "perfect" dialysis prescription has remained elusive. Part of this may relate to the heterogeneity among populations, individual patients, and differences in access to health provision. The optimal balance between dialysis frequency and duration to achieve reductions in patient morbidity and mortality continues to be debated. The concept of dialysis adequacy originated from a post hoc mathematical analysis of the National Cooperative Study and has evolved to become a way of calculating dialysis dose and standa...

Trace elements, which have a crucial role in metabolism and enzymatic pathways, are not routinely monitored in the blood of pediatric patients with chronic kidney disease. The present study was carried out to determine the serum levels of copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), selenium (Se), and lead (Pb) in children with ESRD who were currently receiving conservative management or were on long-term hemodialysis or continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis.

Broad adoption of electronic health record (EHR) systems has facilitated acute kidney injury (AKI) research in 2 ways. First, the detection of AKI based on changes in serum creatinine has largely replaced the sensitive but nonspecific administrative coding of AKI that predominated in earlier studies. Second, the ability to implement real-time AKI interventions such as alerts and best-practice advisories has emerged as a promising tool to fight against the harmful sequela of AKI, which include short-term adverse outcomes as well as progression to chronic kidney disease, dialysis, and death. In this review, we discuss the cu...

This study aims to investigate the effect of Bim on the early diagnosis and prognosis of the elderly uremia with gastrointestinal nutrition combined with dialysis. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Elderly patients with uremia in our hospital were selected and divided into parenteral nutrition group, enteral nutrition group, and regular treatment group. Healthy volunteers were chosen as the control group. Blood oxygen free radicals were tested by flow cytometry. Blood immune function parameter C-reactive protein and IL-6 levels were determined by Western blot. Bim expression in blood was evaluated by RT-PCR and Western blot. Corre...

Purpose of review Small-molecule inhibitors of prolyl hydroxylase domain enzymes (PHD inhibitors) are novel renal anemia therapies that increase endogenous erythropoietin (EPO) production by stabilizing hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF). This review summarizes recent findings and future perspectives of PHD inhibitors (HIF stabilizers) in chronic kidney disease (CKD)-associated anemia. Recent findings Clinical trials have demonstrated that HIF stabilizers effectively increase hemoglobin levels of both nondialysis and dialysis CKD patients without causing serious adverse effects. HIF stabilizers not only restore EPO produc...
