(Natural News) In a new study published in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology, researchers looked at the effect these drinks had on kidney health. They found that people who regularly consumed these beverages had an increased risk of chronic kidney disease. Sugar-sweetened beverages are drinks with added sugar such as soft drinks,...

This study aims at evaluating the prevalence of left ventricular diastolic dysfunction in a group of 319 hypertensive patients with stage 3b –4–5 chronic kidney disease (according to Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes classification), compared with 216 patients with essential hypertension and normal renal function. All patients underwent echocardiographic examination. Patients on stage 1–2–3a chronic kidney disease, dialysi s treatment, or with previous manifestations of heart failure or other cardiovascular diseases were excluded. Patients with renal disease had significantly worse diastolic ...

Authors: Belmar Vega L, Galabia ER, Bada da Silva J, Bentanachs González M, Fernández Fresnedo G, Piñera Haces C, Palomar Fontanet R, Ruiz San Millán JC, de Francisco ÁLM Abstract BACKGROUND: Hyperkalaemia is a significant electrolyte imbalance in chronic kidney disease (CKD). Renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibitors (RAASi) have beneficial cardio-renal properties, although they can often cause hyperkalaemia. OBJECTIVE: To examine the prevalence of hyperkalaemia in CKD, identify factors associated with its appearance and the relationship between hyperkalaemia and mortal...

We report a case of systemic oxalosis involving the eyes and joints due to long-term use of high-dose vitamin C in a patient receiving maintenance peritoneal dialysis (PD). This 76-year-old woman with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease underwent living unrelated kidney transplantation 10 years earlier. The transplant failed 6 months before presentation, and she initiated hemodialysis therapy before transitioning to PD therapy 4 months later. During the month before presentation, the patient noted worsening arthralgias and decreased vision. Ophthalmologic examination revealed proliferative retinopathy and calcium ...

Authors: Begum S Abstract Current knowledge of normal developmental physiology and identification of specific cell types of the kidney at molecular levels enables us to generate various cells of the kidney. The generation of renal specialized cells in vitro with its correct molecular and functional implications is the urgent need for cellular therapy in chronic kidney diseases and for organ formation. Glomerular podocytes are one of the major renal cells lose its functionality to maintain glomerular blood filtration function. In vitro, many inductions or reprogramming methods have been established for podocytes dev...

Authors: Han P, Yuan C, Wang Y, Wang M, Weng W, Zhan H, Yu X, Wang T, Li Y, Yi W, Shao M, Li S, Yi T, Sun H Abstract Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is commonly characterized by proteinuria and leads to progressive glomerulosclerosis and tubulointerstitial fibrosis. Accumulating evidence implicates mitochondrial dysfunction including reactive oxygen species (ROS) overproduction in the pathogenesis of CKD. Mitochondrial function and ROS production are regulated by mitochondrial uncoupling. Niclosamide ethanolamine salt (NEN) is a mild mitochondrial uncoupler, which reduces urinary albumin excretion in mice with diabeti...

Authors: Dai S, Huang B, Zou Y, Liu Y Abstract Introduction: Dyslipidemia combined with hypertension increases the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). The current study aimed to investigate the association of dipping and non-dipping hypertension with CVD in patients with dyslipidemia. Material and methods: A total of 243 documented dyslipidemia patients with hypertension were enrolled. Clinical characteristics and clinic and 24-hour blood pressure (BP) parameters were compared between dipping and non-dipping groups based on 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring. Logistic regression analysis was perform...

Discussion: Incomplete septal cirrhosis is an uncommon cause of non-cirrhotic portal hypertension. Its definition is not well known, morphological and pathophysiological. We have not found published cases of post-RT ascites secondary to this pathology, described as possibly associated with drugs, immune alterations, infections, hypercoagulability and genetic predisposition.

CONCLUSION: Elderly patients on chronic hemodialysis have a high prevalence of cognitive deficits, especially the very elderly, but this group does not have a worse quality of life, except for functional capacity. PMID: 30897190 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
