The New England Journal of Medicine, to their credit,has several open-access essays on the environmental crisis. A good part of the value-added from these is that they demonstrate the synergy among some important issues that aren't often considered together, and don't get a lot of attention in the corporate media.Sorenson and Gracia-Trebenino discuss an epidemic that is largely ignored in the United States. Agricultural workers in tropical climates are experiencing radical increases in the incidence of chronic kidney disease and renal failure. While the cause is not fully understood, it appears to be linked to rising tempe...
ConclusionsAmong individuals with CKD, single measurements of cFGF-23 improve prediction of risks for all-cause mortality and HF admission but not CV mortality, ESRD, or atherosclerotic events. Future studies should evaluate the predictive utility of repeated cFGF-23 testing.
ConclusionSLE is associated with a higher risk of in-hospital mortality and a borderline significant higher risk of prolonged hospitalization after AMI.

TMAO is positively assocaited with different metabolic diseases such as diabetes, chronic kidney disease, and atherosclerosis.We used microarray to analyze the genes regulated by TMAO treatment in primary rat hepatocytes to further understand the mechanistic view of TMAO action.

The Wound Ischemia foot Infection (WIfI) classification has gained widespread acceptance in the vascular community as a method of categorizing disease severity in patients with chronic limb-threatening ischemia (CLTI). The original WIfI system is based on a Delphi consensus model, which relies on an iterative process of consensus amongst experts, but is not necessarily data driven. Twelve experts were selected in the formation of the initial WIfI model. The WIfI classification was initially developed in a cohort of CLTI patients not undergoing revascularization, but since then has been extrapolated to predict outcomes of m...
Introduction: Calciphylaxis is characterized by calcification of the small and medium caliber vessels of the dermis and subcutaneous cellular tissue. It is more common in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) on dialysis, but is also described in patients with other risk factors such as secondary hyperparathyroidism, heart failure (HF), diabetes mellitus type 2 (DM-2), hypercoagulable states and drugs such as warfarin. The mortality rate is high, with sepsis being the most frequent complication.

The primary meal planning goal for diabetes includes maintaining consistency in the amount of carbohydrate consumed at meals. Coupled with the restrictions required for renal disease, this meal plan does require ongoing education from a registered dietitian nutritionist with experience with diabetic kidney disease (DKD). Diet changes are dictated by the laboratory values, specifically serum phosphorus and serum potassium. Each organization stipulates slightly different recommendations for these nutrients.
Conclusions: Iron sucrose but not ferric carboxymaltose, results in complement activation possibly via the lectin and alternative pathway partially mediating oxidative stress but not inflammation.
