AbstractBackgroundHypothyroidism with impairment of renal function and raised creatinine phosphokinase (CPK) is described in adults and children with acquired hypothyroidism, but not in congenital hypothyroidism.Case presentationA male infant born at term weighing 3390  g was seen aged 2 months with prolonged jaundice. Examination showed somnolence, umbilical hernia, enlarged fontanelles and lower limb edema; length 55 cm (−1.5 SD), weight 5.4 kg (−0.13 SD). Biochemistry showed fT4

Phase angle (PA) determined by bioelectrical impedance analysis has been suggested to be a predictor of death in a variety of disease conditions, but its associations with outcomes have not yet been assessed in a large continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patient cohort. The aim of the present study was to examine the association of PA with risks for all-cause and cardiovascular death in patients treated with CAPD.

Abstract INTRODUCTION: Achieving sodium balance is important for peritoneal dialysis patients, as sodium excess may lead to hypertension and extracellular water expansion. We wished to determine whether greater sodium removal had adverse consequences. METHODS: We calculated 24-h urinary and peritoneal sodium losses in peritoneal dialysis patients treated by automated cyclers, when attending for peritoneal membrane and bioimpedance assessments. RESULTS: We reviewed 439 peritoneal dialysis patients, 56.7% male, average age 54.6 years, median sodium loss 110 (68-155) mmol/day. Sodium loss was strongly assoc...

This study aims to comparatively evaluate the burden, coping mechanisms, and QOL among caregivers of HD and PD undergoing and RT patients. Setting and Design: Tertiary care hospital, cross-sectional and descriptive study. Subjects and Methods: Burden, coping mechanisms, and QOL in caregivers of HD and PD undergoing and RT patients were investigated using Zarit burden interview, revised ways of coping and short-form 36 in 30 each caregivers of HD and PD undergoing and RT patients. Results: Moderate to severe burden, mild to moderate burden, and no burden were observed in the majority of caregivers of HD and PD u...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Hypertension is common in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients and associated with adverse outcomes. Besides solute clearance, PD convective clearance is used to control extracellular water (ECW) volume and sodium balance. Previous studies have reported on hypertension in PD patients treated with continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) using hypertonic glucose dialysates. However, increasing numbers of PD patients are now treated with automated peritoneal dialysis (APD) and icodextrin dialysates. As such, we wished to explore factors associated with systolic blood pressure (SBP) in a mod...

This study compared three methods: traditional PET (t-PET), mini-PET, and modified PET (mod-PET). Non-diabetic adults (n=21) who had been on peritoneal dialysis (PD) for at least three months underwent t-PET (glucose 2.5%-4 h), mini-PET (glucose 3.86%-1 h), and mod-PET (glucose 3.86%-4 h) to determine dialysate-to-plasma concentration ratio (D/P) for creatinine and dialysate-to-baseline dialysate concentration ratio (D/D0) for glucose. Agreement between methods regarding D/P creatinine and D/D0 glucose was assessed using analysis of variance (ANOVA), Pearson's correlation coefficient, and Bland-Altman analysis. D/P creatin...
