AbstractThe serum levels of hepcidin generally increase in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) due to inflammation or a decline in the glomerular filtration rate. However, the differences in the ferrokinetics among dialysis modalities are unclear. We investigated the relationship between serum levels of hepcidin and ferritin among non ‐dialyzed CKD (ND), hemodialysis (HD), and peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. We recruited 285 CKD patients (117 ND, 80 HD, and 88 PD patients) and measured the serum levels of hepcidin‐25, ferritin, hemoglobin, iron, transferrin saturation (TSAT), albumin, and high sensitivity C...

te; D Abstract BACKGROUND: The use of L-carnitine has been proposed in haemodialysis (HD) when deficiency is present to improve anaemia resistant to erythropoietin stimulating agent, intradialytic hypotension or cardiac failure. We tested the effects of L-carnitine supplementation on parameters of chronic kidney disease-mineral bone disorder. METHODS: CARNIDIAL was a randomized, double-blinded trial having included 92 incident HD subjects for a 1-year period to receive L-carnitine versus placebo. Determinant factors of C-terminal fibroblast growth factor 23 (cFGF23) and intact FGF23 were studied including Klo...

ConclusionEPO could promote VSMCs calcificationin vitro andin vivo and this effect may be achieved through the JAK2/STAT3/BMP-2 axis and NF- κB pathway.

Understanding the physiology of the kidney and the pathophysiology of common complications of chronic kidney disease (CKD) is essential. The rise of CKD across the United States demands that nurses be prepared to care for these patients. Cardiovascular complications, anemia, and bone formation issues are the most common complications. Approximately 30 million people (15% of adults) are reported to have CKD. By 2020 there will be a 14.4% increase in the prevalence of CKD, and by 2030, the increase will be up by 16.7%. Nurses are integral to providing care that can slow or halt the progression of CKD.

Authors: Orozco-González CN, Cortés-Sanabria L, Márquez-Herrera RM, Núñez-Murillo GK Abstract Pica is an individual entity in the patient with chronic kidney disease (CKD), which phenomenon has not been widely studied despite the high reported prevalence. Moreover, pica complications (anemia, altered electrolytes, poor absorption of micro and macronutrients and malnutrition) could be exacerbated in CKD and limit the quality of renal replacement therapy. The intake of non-caloric and non-nutritional substances could be harmful and cause effects on satiety and metabolic / electrolyt...

ConclusionsRecurrent AKI is a common occurrence after a hospitalization complicated by AKI. Based on routinely available patient characteristics, our findings could facilitate identification of the subgroup of patients with AKI who may benefit from more intensive follow-up to potentially avoid recurrent AKI episodes.

ConclusionsThis study was the first to examine anemia in this group of patients. Costs were significantly higher among anemic patients compared with nonanemic patients; patients with higher CKD stage 5 fared less well than did those in lower stages. This information suggests the need to increase detection, prevention, and early treatment of anemia when managing T2DM patients, particularly those with CKD.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewWe will review non-renal-related mechanisms of fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) pathophysiology.Recent FindingsFGF23 production and metabolism may be affected by many bone, mineral, and kidney factors. However, it has recently been demonstrated that other factors, such as iron status, erythropoietin, and inflammation, also affect FGF23 production and metabolism. As these non-mineral factors are especially relevant in the setting of chronic kidney disease (CKD), they may represent emerging determinants of CKD-associated elevated FGF23 levels. Moreover, FGF23 itself may promote anemia and inflamma...
