Only 10 percent of non-dialysis kidney patients ever see a dietitian

(Loyola University Health System) In patients with chronic kidney disease, medical nutrition therapy can slow the progression and significantly reduce healthcare costs. But 90 percent of non-dialysis kidney disease patients never meet with a dietitian, according to a report in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Resumo A doen ça renal crônica (DRC) é complexa, exigindo múltiplas abordagens em seu tratamento. O objetivo do presente estudo foi avaliar o impacto de um programa de intervenção nutricional sobre o estado nutricional e a qualidade de vida de idosos com DRC não dialítica. Foi realizada uma coorte prospec tiva com 64 idosos, de ambos os sexos, com DRC estágio 3, atendidos em Unidade Básica de Saúde, em Diadema/SP. A intervenção nutricional consistiu em três encontros coletivos e um individual. O estado nutricional foi avaliado p...

Conservative care is argued to be a reasonable treatment alternative for dialysis in older patients with advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, comparisons are scarce and generally focus on survival o...

ConclusionsIn a group of hemodialysis patients from one centre, T-score in proximal femur, low vitamin D, low BMI, and high FRAX for major osteoporotic fracture were associated with low-trauma fractures, however, in multi-variate analysis only low BMI remained a significant predictor of fracture risk.

We describe a novel APRT mutation (chr16:88877985 G / C; c.195 C>/G; p.His54Asp) presenting with CKD without nephrolithiasis. The patient initially required dialysis, but kidney function improved with allopurinol. We reviewed APRT deficiency reported in the literature to determine the loss of kidney function in individuals with untreated APRT deficiency and its relationship to nephrolithiasis. We identified 95 individuals in whom kidney function was assessed prior to treatment. There was a bimodal distribution of kidney failure. AKI occurred frequently in childhood due to obstructing nephrolithiasis or crystalline nephr...

ABSTRACT Objective: Chronic kidney disease is characterized by progressive and irreversible loss of kidney function. The impact of this disease on oral health also presents controversial results. The aim of the study was to determine oral health conditions and oral symptoms of patients with Chronic kidney disease undergoing hemodialysis. Methods: A cross-sectional study on a population with chronic renal failure was performed. Anamnesis and oral examination, decayed, miss and filled teeth (DMFT) index, community periodontal index, simplified oral hygiene index (OHI-S) and gingival index were conducted. Data were processed ...

BurganosAbstractClassic hemodialysis only provides a limited removal of protein bound uremic toxins (PBUT) in patients with chronic kidney disease. A bioartificial kidney device, BAK, composed of a living cell monolayer of conditionally immortalized proximal tubule epithelial kidney cells (ciPTEC) cultured of hollow fiber polymeric membrane can remove protein bound uremic toxins from the blood in combination with classic hemodialysis. The development and clinical implemen...

Authors: Franco ÁO, Starosta RT, Roriz-Cruz M Abstract One of the mechanisms proposed for chronic kidney disease (CKD)-related cognitive impairment is the accumulation of uremic toxins due to the deterioration of the renal clearance function. Cognition can be categorized into five major domains according to its information processing functions: memory, attention, language, visual-spatial, and executive. We performed a review using the terms 'uric acid', 'indoxyl sulfate', 'p-cresyl sulfate', 'homocysteine', 'interleukins' and 'parathyroid hormone'. These are the compounds that were found to be strongly assoc...

Authors: Mirfatahi M, Imani H, Tabibi H, Nasrollahi A, Hedayati M Abstract INTRODUCTION: Chronic kidney disease-mineral and bone disorder is a common complication in hemodialysis patients. The present study was designed to investigate the effects of flaxseed oil, a rich source of plant omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid, on serum markers of bone formation and resorption in hemodialysis patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this randomized controlled trial, 34 hemodialysis patients were randomly assigned to either the flaxseed oil or the control group. The patients in the flaxseed oil group received 6 g/d of ...

Conclusion: A comprehensive survey of ESRD patients in a geographical area of 2 million residents identified one undiagnosed case of Fabry disease and led to the identification of 8 additional cases among his relatives. Screening protocols starting from the dialysis population and upstream extended to families of affected individuals may be an effective strategy to maximize the early identification of subjects with Fabry disease.Kidney Blood Press Res 2018;43:1344 –1351
