Patients with chronic kidney disease are decimated by cardiovascular disease. Unfortunately, elevated concentration of serum troponin is commonly faced in clinical practice creating a challenge to rule out acute cardiac ischaemia in this vulnerable population. This review presents current knowlegde on analytical differences in troponin T and I measurements, their prognostic...
Authors: Qazi Arisar FA, Abid S, Shaikh PA, Awan S Abstract AIM: To evaluate the impact of sepsis and non-communicable diseases (NCDs) on the outcome of decompensated chronic liver disease (CLD) patients. METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, medical records of patients with CLD admitted to the Gastroenterology unit at the Aga Khan University Hospital were reviewed. Patients older than 18 years with decompensation of CLD (i.e., jaundice, ascites, encephalopathy, and/or upper gastrointestinal bleed) as the primary reason for admission were included, while those who were admitted for reasons other than decompen...
The recent and ongoing worldwide increase in the prevalence of obesity parallels the increase in the incidence of chronic kidney disease (CKD). This association suggests an implication of lipotoxicity in the development of kidney diseases. The increased influx of lipids into the kidney can be explained in the context of the “Adipose Tissue Expandability Hypothesis”. This hypothesis states that the adipose tissue has a limited expansion capability, which is different for each individual, and once this limit is reached, the adipose tissue cannot store any more lipids and will thus release them into the bloodstrea...
Conclusions: Higher MCV was associated with higher all-cause, cardiovascular, and infectious mortality in HD patients. Further investigation is necessary to understand the underlying nature of the observed association.Nephron

Conclusion: SCT is associated with an increased risk for CAD in African American males with CKD. The excess risk in males with SCT appears to follow the same pattern as risk in males with SCD. Larger studies are needed to confirm these findings.Am J Nephrol 2019;49:93 –102
CONCLUSION: The proportion of prehypertension and hypertension in adolescents aged 15-18 years in Indonesia is high. Hence, routine blood pressure measurement is important for early detection and prevention of kidney disease progression. PMID: 30630992 [PubMed - in process]
