Factors Associated With Anthropometric Indicators of Nutritional Status in Children With Chronic Kidney Disease Undergoing Peritoneal Dialysis, Hemodialysis, and After Kidney Transplant

The objective of the study was to demonstrate that there are differences in the factors associated with anthropometric indicators of nutritional status, with particular emphasis on arm indicators, in children with end-stage kidney disease undergoing peritoneal dialysis (PD), hemodialysis (HD), and after kidney transplant (KT).

Drug store operator CVS Health (NYSE:CVS) said today it plans to expand into the dialysis market, launching a program focused on early identification of kidney disease and unveiling plans to develop a new home hemodialysis system. CVS said it will approach its entry into the dialysis market in stages, focusing on early disease identification and education, followed by the development of a home dialysis program for both hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. As part of its program, the company said it will launch a pivotal trial of a new home hemodialysis system in support of planned FDA submission, though it has not ye...

Identification of a novel UMOD mutation (c.163G>A) in a Brazilian family with autosomal dominant tubulointerstitial kidney disease. Braz J Med Biol Res. 2018 Mar 01;51(3):e6560 Authors: Lopes LB, Abreu CC, Souza CF, Guimaraes LER, Silva AA, Aguiar-Alves F, Kidd KO, Kmoch S, Bleyer AJ, Almeida JR Abstract Autosomal dominant tubulointerstitial kidney disease (ADTKD) is characterized by autosomal dominant inheritance, progressive chronic kidney disease, and a bland urinary sediment. ADTKD is most commonly caused by mutations in the UMOD gene encoding uromodulin (ADTKD-UMOD). We herein report the first ...

Chronic diseases limit daily activity and reduce health-related quality of life. End-stage renal disease (ESRD) and uremia result from untreated chronic kidney disease (CKD). The prevalence of CKD and ESRD has increased over the past several years (Okpechi et al., 2013). Renal replacement therapy is necessary for survival in patients with ESRD and includes hemodialysis (HD), peritoneal dialysis (PD), and renal transplantation. However, peritonitis is a common complication of PD, and renal allograft rejection is also common (Lafrance et al., 2012; Briggs 2001).

Abstract The relationship between frailty and chronic kidney disease in elderly population has been recognized; however, studies concentrating on frailty in predialysis patients are limited. For nephrologists, the recognition of frailty is important as it has impact on decisions on the choice of dialysis modality and sometimes on whether dialysis is indeed in the patients' best interests. Many of the tools for routine assessment of frailty are not easily applicable to those clinicians not practicing elderly care medicine. A tool needs to be simple and applicable for daily routine practice. The aim of this study wa...

Publication date: Available online 14 December 2017 Source:American Journal of Kidney Diseases Author(s): Bethany Roehm, Amanda R. Vest, Daniel E. Weiner Left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) improve survival in patients with advanced heart failure. As LVAD use increases, so do the number of patients with LVADs who also have kidney disease. However, there are only sparse data on how best to care for these patients. This review provides an overview of LVAD principles and indications, including blood pressure assessment and criteria for receipt of both destination and bridge to transplantation LVADs. Following LVAD implan...

ConclusionsIt is common for patients with CKD to experience signs and symptoms of abnormal bowel health. There is a disconnect between patient perceptions and clinical definitions of normal or abnormal bowel health. Clinical care team members must carefully obtain and clarify patient‐reported symptoms related to bowel function in order to help ensure recommendations and use of appropriate treatments.

Abstract As many as 70% to 97% of individuals with chronic kidney disease (CKD) report fatigue. Fatigue is one of the common, troubling symptoms that affects one's quality of life. This narrative review summarizes the evidence and gaps about the epidemiology, causative factors, and assessment of fatigue in individuals with CKD. Most studies are focused on the hemodialysis population, with very few focused on the peritoneal dialysis and transplant populations in which fatigue is also prevalent. Understanding fatigue and its correlates can help in assessing fatigue and in implementing interventions to alleviate fati...
