Medical News Today: High-potassium foods to avoid with kidney disease

People with chronic kidney disease need to avoid eating potassium-rich foods. Damaged kidneys cannot process potassium properly, which can then build up in the blood and cause weakness, fatigue, and tingling. In this article, learn which high-potassium foods to avoid with kidney disease and what to replace them with.

Contributors : Victoria L Halperin Kuhns ; Jennifer L PluznickSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Mus musculusObesity is a significant risk factor for both chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease. To better understand disease development, we sought to identify novel genes differentially expressed early in disease progression. We first confirmed that mice fed a high-fat (HF) diet exhibit early signs of renal injury including hyperfiltration. We then performed RNA-Seq using renal cortex RNA from C57BL6/J male mice fed either HF or control (Ctrl) diet. We identified 1,134 gene...

We report a case of a TAVI in an 80-year-old patient with severe AS and significant chronic kidney disease (CKD), which was carried out without the use of contrast and with minimal procedural hypotension.Pre-procedural imaging was carried out using 3D trans-esophageal echocardiography (TEE) rather than computed tomography (CT) to avoid contrast administration. The Lotus valve (Boston Scientific, Marlborough, MA, USA) was chosen due to a number of design features which minimize both the need for contrast injection and procedural hypotension during valve positioning and deployment. The procedure was carried out successfully ...

METHODS: Cross-sectional study. We included 274 patients with HIV/AIDS. CKD was defined by the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR

Authors: Morschel CF, Mafra D, Eduardo JCC Abstract Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) bind to enzyme H+/K+-ATPase and inhibit its activity in the stomach, thus decreasing the secretion of gastric acid. PPIs may trigger acute interstitial nephritis, a potentially severe adverse event commonly associated with acute kidney injury. Studies have found that prolonged use of PPIs may increase the risk of chronic kidney disease (CKD). The increase in prescription and inadequate use of this class of medication calls for studies on the effects of prolonged PPI therapy on renal function. Therefore, this review aimed to analyze re...

CONCLUSIONS: Although the lesions are mostly benign, they may increase the morbidity and mortality of these patients, so a proper diagnosis and early treatment are extremely important. PMID: 30010691 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: This is the first Italian prospective study performed with a large cohort of CKD patients over a 3-year period. Considering the multifactorial burden of diseases associated with CKD patients, the need for greater attention to CKD and related disorders is paramount.Nephron

Tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF, commonly termed ‘tenofovir’) is the antiretroviral most commonly implicated in antiretroviral-induced nephrotoxicity. As patients on successful antiretroviral therapy (ART) age, their risk for developing renal disease may increase in part because of ART itself, but more importantly, because of HIV-associated an d non-HIV-associated comorbidity. Therefore, clinicians need an approach to managing renal disease in people on TDF. TDF as a cause of acute kidney injury (AKI) or chronic kidney disease (CKD) is uncommon, and clinicians should actively exclude other causes (Box 1). In...

End-stage kidney disease is the last stage of chronic kidney disease when the kidneys stop functioning properly. Without sufficient kidney function, waste products begin to build up in a person's blood, causing a variety of symptoms. In this article, learn about the causes and treatment of end-stage kidney disease.
