METHODS: CKD patients...

ConclusionsControlled clinical trials are needed to determine which populations may profit from more frequent potassium-monitoring and subsequent interventions, e.g., change or withdrawal of potassium-influencing drugs, in order to restore normal values and prevent cardiovascular outcomes.Registration DetailsRegistration in PROSPERO (Centre for Reviews and Dissemination University of York, York, UK): CRD42016048897 (https://www.crd.york.ac.uk/prospero/display_record.php?RecordID=48897).

We thank Dr. Labriola and Dr. Jadoul for their comments.1 We fully agree with the relevance of falls as a major risk factor of fracture in such patients.2 Falls were mentioned and included in Figure  12 as an important determinant of fractures. However, this issue was not extensively discussed because of few relevant data available in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. CKD patients, including those treated by dialysis, may have a high propensity for falls. Several factors are probably invo lved, including accelerated aging with deleterious consequences such as impaired cognitive function, neurological disorders, v...

A 44-year-old male patient presented with recurrent urinary tract infections (urine cultures negative) for 2 years. He was diagnosed as having a urethral stricture, and he underwent dilatations. However, his renal functions deteriorated, and he developed chronic kidney disease (CKD) requiring dialysis and transplantation. Pretransplant workup revealed 4 –5 leukocytes on urine examination, proteinuria (0.2 g/d), and a serum creatinine level of 6.7 mg/dl. Magnetic resonance imaging of his kidneys showed multifocal hyperintense lesions in both.

We thank Fusaro and her colleagues for their comments.1 We concur that there is a sound need for large, well-designed clinical studies to assess the prevalence, risk factors, treatment, and outcome of vertebral fractures in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). In our review,2 we did not include quantitative vertebral morphology as assessed by MorphoXpress software to quantify vertebral fractures in CKD. The assessment of vertebral fractures by quantitative vertebral morphology in patients on dialysis and renal transplant recipients resulted in the validation of the tool in osteoporotic patients of the general popula...

Authors: Haroon S, Davenport A Abstract INTRODUCTION: Only a minority of patients with chronic kidney disease treated by hemodialysis are currently treated at home. Until relatively recently, the only type of hemodialysis machine available for these patients was a slightly smaller version of the standard machines used for in-center dialysis treatments. Areas covered: There are now an alternative generation of dialysis machines specifically designed for home hemodialysis. The home dialysis patient wants a smaller machine, which is intuitive to use, easy to trouble shoot, robust and reliable, quick to set-up and put ...

AbstractBackgroundChronic kidney disease (CKD) is very common now and is associated with high overall and cardiovascular mortality. Numerous studies have reported that abdominal obesity is a risk factor for cardiovascular mortality. We investigated the link between sagittal abdominal diameter (SAD) and Framingham risk score in non-dialysis CKD patients.MethodsIn a cross-sectional study, we enrolled 307 prevalent non-dialysis CKD patients (175 males, aged 50.7  ± 17.04 years). SAD and Framingham risk score were measured.ResultsFramingham cardiovascular disease risk score was independently predicted by SAD (P

AbstractIntroductionTeneligliptin is a novel oral dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Safety and efficacy of teneligliptin have been demonstrated in clinical studies; however, data supporting its use in patients with moderate or severe renal impairment are limited. This interim analysis of a post-marketing surveillance of teneligliptin, exploRing the long-term efficacy and safety included cardiovascUlar events in patients with type 2 diaBetes treated bY teneligliptin in the real-world (RUBY), aims to verify the long-term safety and efficacy of teneligliptin in Japanese pat...

CONCLUSION: These findings suggest that DBP variability in 24-hour ABPM may be a good prognostic factor for the outcomes of CKD. Further studies are needed to determine the impact of 24-hour ABPM BPV on CKD progression and its differences from VVV.
