Iron deficiency in chronic kidney disease patients with diabetes mellitus

Publication date: Available online 22 May 2018Source: Diabetes &Metabolic Syndrome: Clinical Research &ReviewsAuthor(s): Nicolas Roberto Robles, Juan Lucio Ramos, Edgar Chavez, Boris Gonzalez Candia, Miguel Angel Bayo, Antonio Cidoncha, Juan Lopez Gomez, Juan Jose CuberoAbstractBackgroundsIron deficiency has been studied extensively in patients with chronic kidney disease on hemodialysis therapy. However, few studies looked at iron treatment in the non-dialysis chronic kidney disease population.MethodsFive hundred and eighty patients were studied (247 were diabetic persons). Patients were divided into 4 groups: non-diabetic subjects without CKD, non-diabetic ones with GFR

This study was conducted on 1200 subjects aged>25 years. Hemoglobin from the above-mentioned subjects was detected using direct-infusion electrospray ionization-MS, and HbA1c and FPG were measured according to the manufacturer's instructions. Regression analysis was performed to estimate the correlations and interactions among HbA1c, FPG, and modified hemoglobin.ResultsMultiple modified forms (α1, α2, α3, β1, β2, and β3) of hemoglobin were observed using MS. Statistical analyses indicated that modified hemoglobin was significantly correlated with FPG (p ≤ .01). The association o...

This study compared the lipid compositions, minor components contents, oxidative stability index, and free radical scavenging capacities of walnut oils from two species in China: Juglans regia (common walnut) and Juglans sigillata (iron walnut). The results showed that iron walnut oil contained lower C16:0 (4.97–5.25 %) and special fatty acid (erucic acid). Common walnut oil provided higher tocopherols (441.03–490.32 mg/kg), phytosterols (1014.49–1211.40 mg/kg), squalene (4.41–5.21 mg/kg), and polyphenols (44.78–64.61 mg GAE/kg) and better antioxidant capacities. The walnut oil of the differen...

Konstantinou, Mario Diaz, Dionissios MantzavinosAbstractDifferent iron-containing materials (named as S1–S5) obtained through an oxidative digestion in acid media of basic oxygen furnace (BOF) slag were studied for the activation of sodium persulfate (SPS) to generate active radicals for the oxidation of propylparaben (PP), a model endocrine disruptor, in water. It was found that the materials with magnetite in its composition (S1, S...

CONCLUSIONS Anemia was more common in diabetic CKD patients. Diabetes mellitus was independently associated with iron deficiency. Surprisingly, diminished iron availability was not more frequent in diabetic patients. The physio-pathological mechanisms that could explain these findings remain to be elucidated.
