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...

CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that long-term body weight gain after maturity in normal body weight participants may be associated with the incidence of CKD, independent of current body weight. PMID: 30344194 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Heras Benito M, Fernández-Reyes Luis MJ Abstract Chronic kidney disease is common in people>65years of age. The development and improvement of dialysis techniques has allowed its generalisation to the entire population, when there is a situation of terminal nephropathy, without limit of use due to chronological age. Decision making in elderly patients with advanced chronic kidney disease is complex: in addition to renal parameters, both comorbidity and the presence of geriatric syndromes must be considered. This review addresses the management of information, the decision making of different trea...

Our patient is a 60-year-old female with a past medical history significant for diabetes mellitus type 2, smoking, anal cancer status-post transrectal excision with no evidence of recurrence or metastasis, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus and end-stage renal disease (ESRD) on hemodialysis (HD). She had progressive chronic kidney disease for approximately 25 years, ultimately starting HD 3 years prior to this evaluation. She presented to the urology department for evaluation prior to kidney transplantation.

This study aims to elucidate 1-year clinical outcomes using this technique for patients with stage 4 or 5 advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD). Research has proven that imaging-guided percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) reduces contrast volume significantly; however, only short-term clinical benefits have been reported. Minimum-contrast (MINICON) studies are based on the registry design pattern to enroll PCI results in patients with advanced CKD stage 4 or 5 comorbid with coronary artery disease. We excluded cases of emergency PCI or maintenance dialysis from this study. In this study, we compared the intravascular u...

Publication date: November 2018Source: American Journal of Kidney Diseases, Volume 72, Issue 5Author(s): L. Parker Gregg, S. Susan HedayatiPatients with non–dialysis-dependent chronic kidney disease (NDD-CKD) are 10 times more likely to die of cardiovascular (CV) diseases than the general population, and dialysis-dependent patients are at even higher risk. Although traditional CV risk factors are highly prevalent in individuals with CKD, these patients were often excluded from studies targeting modification of these risks. Although treatment of hypertension is beneficial in CKD, the best target blood pressure has not...

This article describes CKD-related disparities linked to a variety of clinical, socioeconomic, and cultural factors, as well as to select social determinants of health that are defined by social positioning and often by race within the United States. Our advancing understanding of these issues has led to improvements in patient outcomes and is narrowing the gap in disparities across most aspects of CKD and CKD risk factors. There are also extensive data indicating similar improvements in quality measures for patients on dialysis therapy. This article also reviews the state of CKD in African Americans from a population pers...

Wasting has been associated with increased cardiovascular and all-cause mortality in chronic kidney disease (CKD). We investigated whether serum zinc-alpha2-glycoprotein (ZAG), a potent cachectic and lipid-mobilizing factor that is increased in patients with CKD, predicts clinical outcomes in patients on chronic hemodialysis. We quantified serum ZAG at baseline in a prospective cohort of 252 patients undergoing maintenance hemodialysis. Serum ZAG concentrations were inversely associated with serum albumin, creatinine, and triglycerides and, conversely, positively associated with age.

AbstractPatients with chronic renal failure are more susceptible to infections due to acquired immunodeficiency caused by uremia. Parasitic infections are one of the significant causes of morbidity and mortality in those patients, So we aimed to assess the prevalence ofCryptosporidium spp. and other protozoan infections in patients undergoing hemodialysis in Qena Governorate, Upper Egypt. The present study took place in Qena University Hospitals, Egypt. Participants were 150 Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)  patients undergoing hemodialysis, and 50 healthy individuals. After questionnaire, three consecutive stool samples ...
