Association between serum Na –Cl level and renal function decline in chronic kidney disease: results from the chronic kidney disease Japan cohort (CKD-JAC) study

This study aimed to evaluate serum Na–Cl level as a risk factor for renal function decline among patients who participated in the chronic kidney disease Japan cohort (CKD-JAC) study.MethodsThe association between low Na –Cl concentration (

In conclusion, the concept of an epigenetic clock is compelling, but caution should be taken in interpreting associations with age acceleration. Association tests of age acceleration should include age as a covariate.

This study enrolled consecutive 615 hospitalized patients with heart failure. We investigated the associations between circulating acetoacetate and clinical characteristics or prognosis in HF patients.ResultsWe divided the patients into two groups based on circulating acetoacetate levels (high group: acetoacetate ≥35 µmoL/L, n = 313; and low group: acetoacetate

AbstractBackgroundNondipping heart rate (NHR) is a condition reported to be associated with cardiovascular events and cardiovascular mortality recently. We aimed to search whether there is difference among hypertensive patients with and without chronic kidney disease (CKD) in terms of NHR pattern and the factors associated with NHR in patients with CKD.MethodsThe study included 133 hypertensive patients with normal kidney functions, 97 hypertensive patients with predialysis CKD, and 31 hypertensive hemodialysis patients. Heart rate, blood pressure and pulse wave velocity (PWV) were measured by 24-h ambulatory blood pressur...

Chronic kidney disease (CKD), defined by low estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), is common and a risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD). The risk rises with decline in eGFR and is maximal (around 20 times that of the general population) in patients with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) requiring dialysis. Conventional factors such as diabetes mellitus, hypertension, smoking and hyperlipidaemia contribute to the risk of progressive CKD and CVD. Other factors including proteinuria, left ventricular hypertrophy, impaired calcium –phosphate homeostasis (PTH, FGF-23), anaemia and inflammation, contribute to ...

Authors: Wee YH, Anpalahan M Abstract BACKGROUND: Older age has a significant association with anaemia. However, this has not been adequately investigated in the context of specific comorbidities such as type 2 diabetes mellitus(T2DM). OBJECTIVES: To investigate the role of age in normocytic anaemia(NCA) and the adverse outcomes of NCA in T2DM. METHODS: Patients with NCA, either unexplained or related to chronic kidney disease(CKD), were recruited from a diabetic clinic over six months. Anaemia was defined as a haemoglobin(Hb)

AbstractCardiovascular disease (CVD) continues to be the leading cause of death in Western civilizations, and hyperlipidemia is a well-established independent risk factor for the development of atherosclerosis and CVD progression. Many chronic kidney disease (CKD) and dialysis patients have the traditional CVD risk factors (age, obesity, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and hyperlipidemia); however, CKD and dialysis predispose patients to several non-traditional risk factors, including myocardial remodeling, hyperparathyroidism, malnutrition, bone and mineral disorders, anemia, albuminuria, inflammation, and endothelial dy...

Conclusion: Our findings describe the most reported risk factors for preventability of oral anticoagulant-induced bleedings. These factors may be useful for targeting interventions to improve pharmacovigilance activities in our regional territory and to reduce the burden of medication errors and inappropriate prescription. Introduction Oral anticoagulant therapy is widely used for the prevention of stroke and systemic embolism in patients with atrial fibrillation, or for the prevention and treatment of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism (Raj et al., 1994; Monaco et al., 2017). Oral anticoagulants can be di...

Conclusion: Almost half of the CKD participants were anemic, and the odds of anemia did not increase linearly with increasing severity of CKD. There was a marked ethnic disparity in anemia prevalence. Our study highlights the need for risk-based management of anemia among CKD patients. PMID: 30858723 [PubMed]

Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) have an increased risk of adverse cardiovascular/cerebrovascular events. The aim of this study is to clarify whether stress myocardial perfusion single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) could predict cardiovascular/cerebrovascular events. In the Gunma-CKD SPECT Study, a multicenter prospective cohort trial, 311 patients with CKD (estimated glomerular filtration rate #x3c; 60 min/mL/1.73 m2) including 50 patients on hemodialysis underwent stress99mTc-tetrofosmin SPECT for suspected ischemic heart disease and were followed for 2 years. The primary endpoint was the occurren...

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.
