We confirmed that level of cellular prion protein (PrPC) in serum was decreased and mitochondria function of CKD-derived hMSCs (CKD-hMSCs) was impaired in patients with CKD. We proved that trea...

Authors: Mutluay R, Konca Değertekin C, Işıktaş Sayılar E, Derici Ü, Gültekin S, Gönen S, Arınsoy ST, Sindel MŞ Abstract Background/aim: Fetuin-A, a circulating inhibitor of calcification, is a marker of inflammatory-nutritional state. We evaluated the association between serum fetuin-A levels and vascular calcification, intima-media thickness, and nutritional and inflammatory markers in different stages of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Materials and methods: CKD patients were sampled for calcium-phosphate parameters and nutritional and inflammatory markers [highly sensitive C-reactive pro...

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
