Many patients show signs of chronic kidney disease before diabetes diagnosis

(Veterans Affairs Research Communications) Many patients who will later be diagnosed with diabetes show signs of chronic kidney disease even before their diabetes diagnosis, according to a study by Veterans Affairs researchers and colleagues in Tennessee. The researchers looked at data on more than 36,000 veterans who were diagnosed with diabetes between 2003 and 2013.

Conclusion In a large US-based outpatient registry, we found that a quarter of adults with T2D had a diagnosis of HF, which was predominantly HFpEF. Although certain T2D medication use in patients with HF appeared consistent with evidence (less use of thiazolidinediones), others appeared contrary to evidence (less use of metformin and SGLT2 inhibitors).

Authors: Avinash S, Singh VP, Agarwal AK, Chatterjee S, Araya V Abstract Background: Cystatin C is a low molecular weight protein produced by all nucleated human cells, with a stable production rate. Its levels are not influenced by inflammation, infections, hepatic or renal diseases, or by dietary or constitutional factors. We compared serum cystatin C and serum creatinine based predicting equations to estimate glomerular filteration rate (GFR) in type 2 diabetes mellitus, using the staging of chronic kidney disease (CKD) defined by the National Kidney Foundation. We also explored the relationship of urine albumin...

Conclusions In this cross-sectional survey, reduced eGFR was strongly and independently associated with greater sedentary time. This risk was further heightened by the presence of diabetes and arthritis. Studies to determine causes for sedentary behavior and assess the feasibility and value of interventions to reduce sedentary time in CKD are needed.

This study is registered with, number NCT01621178. Findings Between Aug 15, 2012, and Nov 30, 2015, 577 patients were randomly assigned, 193 to dulaglutide 1·5 mg, 190 to dulaglutide 0·75 mg, and 194 to insulin glargine. The effects on HbA1c change at 26 weeks of dulaglutide 1·5 mg and 0·75 mg were non-inferior to those of insulin glargine (least squares mean [LSM] −1·2% [SE 0·1] with dulaglutide 1·5 mg [183 patients]; −1·1% [0·1] with dulaglutide 0·75 mg [180 patients]; −1·1% [0·1] with insulin glargine...

This study aimed to assess IRS2 expression in USCs of patients with diabetes mellitus, DN, and nondiabetic chronic kidney disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS: To quantify IRS2 expression, RNA was extracted from USCs of 223 individuals comprised of diabetes mellitus, DN, and nondiabetic chronic kidney disease as well as a healthy control group. The cDNA was synthesized and comparative TaqMan real-time reverse transcript polymerase chain reaction was used in the presence of beta actin gene as a reference gene for normalization, relative to the control. RESULTS: Our data showed that the USCs expression of IRS2 gene was sig...

Authors: Ruge T, Carlsson AC, Ingelsson E, Risérus U, Sundström J, Larsson A, Lind L, Ärnlöv J Abstract OBJECTIVE: Circulating levels of endostatin are elevated in many underlying conditions leading to heart failure such as hypertension, diabetes, chronic kidney disease and ischemic heart disease. Yet, the association between endostatin and the incidence of heart failure has not been reported previously in the community. DESIGN: We investigated the longitudinal association between serum endostatin levels and incident heart failure in two community-based cohorts of elderly: Prospective Inve...

This study sought to analyze the sex differences in 30-day, 1-year, and long-term net adverse clinical events (NACEs) in Chinese adult patients with STEMI after PCI. Methods: This study retrospectively analyzed 1920 consecutive STEMI patients (age ≤60 years) treated with PCI from January 01, 2006, to December 31, 2012. A propensity score analysis between males and females was performed to adjust for differences in baseline characteristics and comorbidities. The primary endpoint was the incidence of 3-year NACE. Survival curves were constructed with Kaplan-Meier estimates and compared by log-rank tests between the t...

Conclusion: SCT in these racially diverse, young adults increased both the incidence of and healthcare utilization for thromboembolism, diabetes mellitus type II, sickle cell disease, pulmonary, and chronic renal conditions. These findings suggest that clinicians treating young adults with SCT should exercise heightened surveillance for these CMC to ensure both early diagnosis and access to treatments.
