President Donald Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order aimed at streamlining the overburdened kidney care and transplantation system—a move meant to “bring new hope to millions of Americans suffering from kidney disease,” Trump said. The policy is intended to improve kidney care in three major ways: by emphasizing more effective and convenient treatments; making more kidneys available for transplant; and improving preventive care and education with the goal of reducing the number of people who develop end-stage renal disease by 25% by 2030. Kidney disease tends not to attract as much attention as o...

Purpose of review The population of kidney transplant recipients with advanced chronic kidney disease is growing but their outcomes are poor and care is not standardized. There has been wide variety of research in recent years on different aspects of care in failing allografts, and these research findings may help the providers in optimizing care. The purpose of the review is to outline the challenges and opportunities in management of failing allograft, and provide tools for improvement. Recent findings This review summarizes the recent research in field of failing allograft including outcomes, immunosuppression, ris...

CONCLUSIONS: Reduction of dialysate temperature may prevent IDH, but the conclusion is uncertain. Larger studies that measure important outcomes for HD patients are required to assess the effect of reduction of dialysate temperature. Six ongoing studies may provide much-needed high quality evidence in the future. PMID: 31273758 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Intervention for higher-risk participants of health checkups especially with diabetes has been started in Japan to prevent renal replacement therapy (RRT) initiation, but evidence about RRT initiation risk among checkup participants has been scarce. To estimate the incidence by risk factors, we conducted a retrospective cohort study using medical claims and checkup data of a community-based insurance scheme in Japan. Beneficiaries who participated in the checkup in 2012-2013 were included and followed up for about five years. We estimated the incidence of RRT initiation by the subject characteristics, fol...

As I begin my term as Chair of the Council on Renal Nutrition, I can ’t help but reflect on my journey to this point. I have been an registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) for over 35 years and almost 20 of those years have been in the field of Nephrology. In caring for patients across the full spectrum of this specialty, I have worked with dialysis patients, pre -transplant and post-transplant patients, kidney donors, and CKD patients. I am currently employed in a multidisciplinary Chronic Kidney Disease Clinic.

ConclusionsRenal biopsies, while not commonly performed in children with SCD, were universally abnormal. Outcomes were poor in this cohort of patients despite a variety of post-biopsy interventions. Effective early intervention to prevent chronic kidney disease (CKD) is needed to reduce morbidity and mortality in children with SCD.

(ERA-EDTA) As chronic kidney disease (CKD) progresses, the kidneys become less able to maintain a healthy balance of acids in the body. To maintain healthy acid levels, people with CKD are treated with alkaline substances such as sodium bicarbonate, also commonly used to neutralize heartburn and indigestion. The UBI study shows that sodium bicarbonate halves the risk of kidney disease progression, the likelihood of needing dialysis or transplantation) and overall mortality in people with CKD [1].
