Dietary inflammatory index and its association with renal function and progression of chronic kidney disease

While evidence exists for an association between the dietary inflammatory index (DII) and cardiovascular diseases, the relation between DII and chronic kidney disease (CKD) is not known.

Conclusion: HD presented a more adverse impact on oral health than PD, particularly periodontal disease and oral Candida colonization; however, this impact on oral health appears to be reduced or ameliorated when patients change from HD to PD therapy.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewOlder adults often live with chronic disease including diabetes and its complications. In this review, we examine the complexity and heterogeneity of older adults with diabetes and chronic kidney disease, explore the nuances in their diabetes-related monitoring, and discuss their best diabetes management.Recent FindingsAlthough there remains an overall lack of studies in older adults with diabetes and chronic kidney disease, recent reports have highlighted their vulnerabilities. These individuals face an increased risk of cognitive impairment and dementia, frailty, dysglycemia, polypharmacy, declin...

AbstractThe aim of the study was to determine the clinical and biochemical characteristics especially cystatin C and the association of angiotensin type I receptor (AT1R) gene polymorphism with normoalbuminuric chronic kidney disease (NACKD) among South Indian type 2 diabetes (T2DM) population.Material and methodsThe study comprised of 308 (M:F 190:118) subjects with T2DM categorized into three groups. Group I: T2DM patients without albuminuria (NA) and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR)>  90 ml/min/1.73m2 (n = 110); group II: T2DM patients with albuminuric chronic kidney disease (CKD) with eGFR

Approximately 500 monogenic causes of chronic kidney disease (CKD) have been identified, mainly in pediatric populations. The frequency of monogenic causes among adults with CKD has been less extensively studied. To determine the likelihood of detecting monogenic causes of CKD in adults presenting to nephrology services in Ireland, we conducted whole exome sequencing (WES) in a multi-centre cohort of 114 families including 138 affected individuals with CKD. Affected adults were recruited from 78 families with a positive family history, 16 families with extra-renal features, and 20 families with neither a family history nor...
