An estimated 14.8% of adults have chronic kidney disease (CKD).1 Diabetic kidney disease (DKD) is classified according to the presence of microalbuminuria or macroalbuminuria.2 Of the 30 million US individuals with diabetes, those who met any criteria for DKD is estimated at 26.2%. Using 2010 census data, this translates to a prevalence of approximately 8.2 million people with any DKD, including 4.6 million people with albuminuria, 1.9 million people with macroalbuminuria, 4.5 million people with reduced estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), and 0.9 million people with severely reduced eGFR.
To evaluate the characteristics of type 2 diabetes (T2DM) patients with or without chronic kidney disease (CKD) in Germany.
Hyperuricemia and gout have been linked to chronic kidney disease (CKD). Whether the increased risk of CKD in gout is due to shared risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes or heart disease, or due to gout its...
Abstract Lower extremity peripheral artery disease (PAD) affects 12% to 20% of Americans 60 years and older. The most significant risk factors for PAD are hyperlipidemia, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, chronic kidney disease, and smoking; the presence of three or more factors confers a 10-fold increase in PAD risk. Intermittent claudication is the hallmark of atherosclerotic lower extremity PAD, but only about 10% of patients with PAD experience intermittent claudication. A variety of leg symptoms that differ from classic claudication affects 50% of patients, and 40% have no leg symptoms at all. Current guidelin...
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...
(Boston University School of Medicine) For two decades, Nicaragua and El Salvador have seen increasing mortality from an unusual form of chronic kidney disease (CKD), also called Mesoamerican Nephropathy (MeN). The disease has disproportionately affected sugarcane and other agricultural workers, and appears to be unrelated to traditional kidney disease risk factors such as diabetes.
To understand the risk of hypoglycaemia during Ramadan fasting by use of CGM, as well as to observe the Glycemic control and renal functions in patients with diabetes and chronic kidney disease stage 3 (CKD -3).
ConclusionsThis review summarizes the fermentation performance of various dietary fibers using in vitro models. Both the physical and chemical structures of dietary fibers are critical factors that determine fermentation rate, short-chain fatty acid profiles and growth of different bacterial groups. Considering the potential relationship between fermentation performance and health, three principles for designing fermentable dietary fiber are proposed: slow fermentation in the colon; high butyrate and/or propionate production; and selective bacterial growth, promoting the beneficial bacteria that improve the intestinal barrier function.
CONCLUSIONS: According to the results obtained in our study, the one-stage surgical implementation of BBAVF-ST presents high permeability rates and a small number of related complications. Diabetes mellitus is a factor related to a worse surgical prognosis. Some of the biggest advantages are the greater optimisation of health resources and a shorter time in which the central venous catheter needs to remain in the body.
