Midstream Urine Microbiome Diverse in Seniors With CKD

FRIDAY, May 11, 2018 -- Older adults with non-dialysis-dependent chronic kidney disease (CKD) have a diverse midstream voided urine microbiome, according to a study published online April 12 in International Urology and Nephrology. Holly Kramer,...

ConclusionAlthough the progress of medical treatment is changing rapidly, surgical treatment is still an effective way to control serum iPTH and calcium chronically for SHPT patients. Complex SHPT patients can also receive satisfied effect by surgical treatment, without apparently increasing the risk of complications.

Iron parameters have not been well characterized in pre-dialysis patients with chronic kidney disease, and it remains unclear if abnormal iron balance is associated with increased mortality. Therefore, we performed a historical cohort study using data from the Veterans Affairs Corporate Data Warehouse to evaluate the relationship between iron status and mortality. We identified a pre-dialysis chronic kidney disease cohort with at least one set of iron indices between 2006-2015. The cohort was divided into four iron groups based on the joint quartiles of serum transferrin saturation (percent) and ferritin concentration (ng/...

AbstractSecondary and tertiary hyperparathyroidism is an important problem of chronic kidney disease. Brown tumor is a benign, unusual, reactive lesion as a result of disturbed bone remodeling, from long-standing increase in parathyroid hormone level. Brown tumors may cause morbidity due to pressure symptoms on neural structures and spontaneous bone fractures. Herein, we presented a peritoneal dialysis patient with tertiary hyperparathyroidism under calcand calcitriol treatment for 4  years due to refusing of the parathyroidectomy operation. She admitted to hospital for sudden onset back pain with difficulty in gait a...

[The new adipokine zinc-α2-glycoprotein (ZAG) as a link between adipose tissue and kidney? [Czy nowa adipocytokina cynkowa α2-glikoproteina (ZAG) stanowi ogniwo między tkanką tłuszczową a nerkami?]]. Endokrynol Pol. 2019;70(2):171-189 Authors: Woźny ŁA, Morawiecka-Pietrzak M, Jaszczura M, Ziora K, Grzeszczak W Abstract Adipose tissue is currently considered not only as an energy store but also as an organ of internal secretion. Numerous adipocytokines regulating a number of human body processes are important in many disease processes, including chronic kidney disease (CKD). Nowadays,...

Recent European guidelines suggest using the kidney failure risk equation (KFRE) and mortality risk equation for kidney disease (MREK) to guide decisions on whether elderly patients with chronic kidney disease should be referred early for dialysis preparation. However, the concurrent use of the two risk equations has not been validated. To do so we evaluated 1,188 individuals over five years with estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) under 45ml/min/1.73m2 and age over 65 years from the Norwegian population based HUNT study.

N Viswanath, KT Harichandra Kumar, Satish Haridasan, Sreejith Parameswaran, PS PriyamvadaIndian Journal of Nephrology 2019 29(3):172-178 There is only limited information on the functional status (FS) of patients receiving hemodialysis (HD) from developing countries where the etiology of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and demographic profile are different. The study aims to assess the FS in patients with CKD using three validated generic instruments. A total of 116 adult patients on HD with a dialysis vintage >3 months were enrolled. FS was assessed using three generic tools – Functional Independence Measure (FIM)...

Causland FR Abstract PURPOSE: Diabetes mellitus is a risk factor for the development and progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, the association of prediabetes with adverse kidney outcomes is uncertain. METHODS: We performed a secondary analysis of the Systolic Blood Pressure Intervention Trial (SPRINT), including 9,361 participants without diabetes at baseline. We categorized participants according to fasting glucose as having impaired fasting glucose (≥100 mg/dL [(≥5.6 mmol/L]) or normoglycemia (

About 30 million people in the U.S. are estimated to have chronic kidney disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. However, with limited access to dialysis care, many patients go untreated. But a new Chicago startup aims to help. Simergent, founded in 2014 by Steve Lindo and Rick Pendergraft, is developing a home dialysis machine to deliver safe and effective automated peritoneal dialysis therapy to end stage renal disease patients. Though the product is still in the…

I seem to have lost track of advancements in dipstick technology understanding that it is well established in such areas as pregnancy testing. Home glucose testing for diabetics, of course, is growing increasingly sophisticated with the test strips beingread by a meter. A recent article indicated that this meter technology can be replaced by the camera in a smartphone for recording and analyzing dipstick color changes when screening for kidney disease (see:FDA approves smartphone camera –based dipstick product). Below is an excerpt from the article: Healthy.io, based in Tel Aviv, Israel, has obtained U...
