AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo summarize the literature regarding alterations in bone health in patients with glomerular kidney disease and highlight areas in need of additional investigation.Recent FindingsThere is mounting evidence that children and adults with glomerular conditions, with or without compromised kidney function, comprise a distinct subgroup of patients with unique risk factors for altered bone health.SummaryPatients with glomerular kidney disease are exposed to both disease-related and treatment-related factors that affect bone structure and function. In addition to chronic kidney disease –related risk...

Sodium toxicity in peritoneal dialysis: mechanisms and "solutions". J Nephrol. 2019 Nov 16;: Authors: Borrelli S, De Nicola L, Minutolo R, Perna A, Provenzano M, Argentino G, Cabiddu G, Russo R, La Milia V, De Stefano T, Conte G, Garofalo C, Research Group of Peritoneal Dialysis of Italian Society of Nephrology Abstract The major trials in peritoneal dialysis (PD) have demonstrated that increasing peritoneal clearance of small solutes is not associated with any advantage on survival, whereas sodium and fluid overload heralds higher risk of death and technique failure. On the other hand, high...
