ConclusionThe cross-sectional baseline data from the CKD-JAC study shed light on the association between LVH and risk factors in patients with decreased renal function. Further longitudinal analyses of the CKD-JAC cohort are needed to evaluate the prognostic value of LVH in CKD patients.

CONCLUSION: Validated data are of vital importance for health managers to monitor users. The population of this study is predominantly elderly, obese, requiring multi-professional care to slow the progression of the disease and decrease morbidity and mortality.

Authors: Wu PY, Huang JC, Chen SC, Chen LI Abstract Type 2 Diabetes mellitus (DM) is the leading cause of chronic kidney disease (CKD) worldwide, and is associated with an increased risk of left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy, LV systolic and diastolic dysfunctions. The aim of this study was to investigate abnormal echocardiographic findings in patients with CKD with and without DM, and identify the factors associated with these abnormalities. We enrolled 356 pre-dialysis patients with CKD (stages 3-5), including 208 with DM and 148 without DM. The structure and systolic and diastolic functions of the left ventricle ...

CONCLUSIONS: The fact that increased level of one biomarker correlated with higher values of other markers may suggest that their concentration depends on the severity of disease. The obtained results also suggest that the measurement of copeptin may support the diagnosis of cardiovascular problems in dialysis patients. PMID: 28814234 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract INTRODUCTION: Uric acid (UA), a breakdown product of purines, has been associated with mortality in different populations. Less is known about associations between hyperuricemia and mortality in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients, later undergoing hemodialysis (HD), during a long observation period. The aim of this study was to determine the impact of elevated UA levels on long-term (19.5 years) survival of CKD patients. METHODS: 120 CKD patients (49 female, 71 male) enrolled in our study were observed from their first visit at the patients' nephrology outpatient clinic (NOC). All patients later s...

Abstract In Taiwan, the prevalence of hyperlipidemia increased due to lifestyle and dietary habit changes. Low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and non-high density lipoprotein cholesterol (non-HDL-C) are all significant predicting factors of coronary artery disease in Taiwan. We recognized that lipid control is especially important in patients with existed atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases (ASCVD), including coronary artery disease (CAD), ischemic stroke and peripheral arterial disease (PAD). Because the risk of ASCVD is high in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM), chronic kidney disease (CKD) and f...

Previous Prevention of CAD Prevention is classified into primordial, primary and secondary. Primordial prevention is community level intervention to reduce risk factors and mostly not under the purview of the individual physician. Primary prevention is by controlling the risk factors. Non modifiable risk factors for CAD Age, gender, race/ethnicity and genetic predisposition or family history are considered the non modifiable risk factors for CAD. Prevalence of CAD increases as age advances and it is definitely more common in males. A strongly positive family history of premature coronary artery disease increases the r...
