Patterns and predictors of depression treatment among adults with chronic kidney disease and depression in ambulatory care settings in the United States

ConclusionsDepression treatment was recorded in approximately half of US ambulatory care visits involving adults with CKD and depression from 2014 to 2015. Further research is warranted to determine how to appropriately manage treatment of depression in adults with CKD.

Authors: Gupta S, Patil NM, Karishetti M, Tekkalaki BV Abstract Background: Prognosis and associated complications of chronic kidney disease (CKD) may result in psychological distress and mood disorders especially depression. Prevalence and clinical correlates of depression in CKD patients in the Indian context are not well studied and established. Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study included 84 CKD patients. The diagnosis was made based on the diagnostic and statistical manual, 4th edition criteria; psychiatric disorders were ruled out through the mini-neuropsychiatric interview. Montgomery-Asber...

BackgroundSickle cell disease (SCD) is a monogenetic disorder, with 300,000 to 400,000 infants born annually with the disease around the world (Kato et al, Nat Rev Dis Primers 2018). SCD is a progressively debilitating and life-threatening disease characterized by hemolytic anemia, painful vaso-occlusive events (VOEs) and persistent vasculopathy that result in significant morbidity, poor quality of life and early mortality. There is significant heterogeneity in clinical manifestations of SCD, given that vaso-occlusion and hemolysis-associated endothelial dysfunction may manifest in any tissue or organ. Severely affected pa...

Background: Sickle-cell disease (SCD) has been identified as a major public health problem by the World Health Organization (WHO) and is one of the most common hematological genetic diseases. In United States, there are approximately 100,000 admissions per year attributed to SCD. Our objective is to provide nationally representative rates for unplanned 30-day readmissions in SCD patients as well as identify reasons for, characteristics and predictors of these readmissions.Methods: We performed retrospective analysis using the 2013 Nationwide Readmissions Database (NRD) of the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) ...

AbstractThe EUROASPIRE surveys (EUROpean Action on Secondary Prevention through Intervention to Reduce Events) demonstrated that most European coronary patients fail to achieve lifestyle, risk factor and therapeutic targets. Here we report on the 2-year incidence of hard cardiovascular (CV) endpoints in the EUROASPIRE IV cohort. EUROASPIRE IV (2012 –2013) was a large cross-sectional study undertaken at 78 centres from selected geographical areas in 24 European countries. Patients were interviewed and examined at least 6 months following hospitalization for a coronary event or procedure. Fatal and non-fatal CV ev...

In a case-control study of over 5600 adults from Taiwan published in this month's Journal of Cardiac Failure, Liu and colleagues observed that individuals diagnosed with HF within the past two years were at significantly elevated risk for suicide, even when accounting for physical problems, psychiatric illness, and other suicide risk factors.1 Furthermore, diabetes mellitus, chronic kidney disease, cerebrovascular disease, and cancer were associated with an increased risk of suicide in adjusted analyses.
