Authors: Herrera-Añazco P, Atamari-Anahui N, Flores-Benites V Abstract We conducted a descriptive and ecological study that evaluated the relationship between the prevalence trend of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), the number of nephrologists, and the number of hemodialysis services of the Ministry of Health (MINSA). The study was based on a secondary analysis of the care provided by MINSA, the Observatory of Human Resources in Health, and the hemodialysis services registered as Health Service Providers of the Intangible Health Solidarity Fund (FISSAL, in Spanish). The adjusted prevalence of CKD ...

HernandezAbstractTurmeric extract or active component curcumin may have anti-inflammatory effects in people with chronic inflammatory diseases. The effect of turmeric or curcumin on a wide range of inflammatory markers has not been evaluated in a systematic review. We performed a systematic review of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) evaluating the effects of oral turmeric or curcumin on inflammatory markers (CRP, hsCRP, IL-1, IL-6, TNF) in patients with a wid...

The Guatemalan Foundation for Children with Kidney Diseases was established in 2003 as the first and only comprehensive pediatric nephrology program and hemodialysis unit in Guatemala. Bridge of Life (BOL) is a not-for-profit charitable organization focused on chronic kidney disease and supplied equipment, training and support during formation of the hemodialysis unit. Pediatric permanent vascular access (VA) expertise had not been established and noncuffed dialysis catheters provided almost all VA, many through subclavian vein access sites.

In conclusion, in consensus with a recent systematic review, a single bout of the 60 J/arm was the best dose/response for increased strength of the small muscles (handgrip strength). In view of the increasing i mplementation of exercise programs during hemodialysis, the current study opens a new field for PBMT for CKD patients.

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)...

AbstractBackgroundHyperphosphatemia control is a major issue in hemodialysis patients. Both sevelamer and nicotinamide are prescribed for this purpose. In addition, they exert pleiotropic effects such as an improvement of inflammatory status and potentially enhanced clearance of uremic toxins. In the present secondary analysis of the NICOREN trial, we investigated the impact of sevelamer and nicotinamide on uremic toxins, toxin precursors, and endotoxemia in chronic hemodialysis patients.MethodsCirculating uremic toxins (including phenylacetylglutamine, trimethylamine-N-oxide, p-cresyl sulfate, indoxyl sulfate, kynurenine,...
