Association of Dietary Potassium Intake with the Development of Chronic Kidney Disease and Renal Function in Patients with Mildly Decreased Kidney Function: The Korean Multi-Rural Communities Cohort Study.

CONCLUSIONS Dietary potassium was associated with lower risk of CKD development and eGFR decline, and this association was observed only in hypertensives. PMID: 30733429 [PubMed - in process]

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.

Weiner, Michael V. Rocco, Michael J. Choi, Matthew R. Weir, Tara I. Chang, Rajiv Agarwal, Srinivasan BeddhuHypertension is a modifiable risk factor for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality and reduction of elevated blood pressure (BP) remains an important intervention for slowing kidney disease progression. Over the past decade, the most appropriate BP target for initiation and titration of BP-lowering medications has been an area of intense ...

Zeller, C. Vergely-VandriesseBackgroundGrowth differentiation factor 15 (GDF15) is an emerging biomarker in cardiovascular (CV) diseases. GDF15 is weakly expressed in normal condition but increased in pathological situations such as inflammation, oxidative stress, and left ventricular remodeling. Recent data suggest GDF15 as a marker in heart failure (HF).PurposeWe aimed to identify the determinants of GDF15 circulatin...

Obesity is one of the major pandemics of the 21st century. In 2013 –2014, the prevalence of obesity in the US was>35% among men and 40% among women [1]. The World Health Organization (WHO) reported that 39% of men and 39% of women were overweight, and 11% of men and 15% of women were obese in 2016. Thus, approximately 2 billion adults worldwide were overweight and, among them, more than half a billion were obese [2]. Obesity is a chronic disease adversely affecting the quality of life and is associated with many comorbidities, like hypertension, dyslipidemia, type 2 diabetes (T2DM), cardiovascular disease (CVD), n...

Conclusion: Among adolescents in a nationally representative survey, hypernatremia and hyperosmolality were associated with high SBP and decreased eGFR. These findings may support the hypothesis that an imbalance of salt and water contribute to hypertension and CKD.Nephron

WeirHypertension and chronic kidney disease (CKD) are closely interlinked pathophysiologic states, such that sustained hypertension can lead to worsening kidney function and progressive decline in kidney function can conversely lead to worsening blood pressure (BP) control. The pathophysiology of hypertension in CKD is complex and is a sequela of multiple factors, including reduced nephron mass, increased sodium retention and extracellular volume expansion, sympathetic nerv...

In patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease, empagliflozin (EMPA) decreased progression of chronic kidney disease, likely via a reduction in intraglomerular pressure. Due to prevalent comorbidities, such as hypertension and albuminuria, patients often receive other agents that alter intrarenal hemodynamics, including angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors/angiotensin receptor blockers (ACEi/ARBs), calcium channel blockers and diuretics. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs may also be used by some individuals.

In addition, association of PH with CKD etiology, its prevalence in various CKD stages, correlation between the severity of PH with CKD duration, various related biochemical parameters, and their relation to PH in CKD patients were analyzed. This cross-sectional and prospective study included 200 CKD patients. Detailed history and clinical exam...

AbstractThe World Health Organization defines overweight and obesity as the condition where excess or abnormal fat accumulation increases risks to health. The prevalence of obesity is increasing worldwide and is around 20% in ICU patients. Adipose tissue is highly metabolically active, and especially visceral adipose tissue has a deleterious adipocyte secretory profile resulting in insulin resistance and a chronic low-grade inflammatory and procoagulant state. Obesity is strongly linked with chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, dyslipidemia, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, chr...
