CKD in China: Evolving Spectrum and Public Health Implications

Publication date: Available online 3 September 2019Source: American Journal of Kidney DiseasesAuthor(s): Chao Yang, Haibo Wang, Xinju Zhao, Kunihiro Matsushita, Josef Coresh, Luxia Zhang, Ming-Hui ZhaoDiabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure worldwide, whereas glomerulonephritis has been predominant in developing countries such as China. The prevalence of obesity and diabetes has increased dramatically in developing countries, substantially affecting the patterns of chronic kidney disease (CKD) observed in these regions. Using data from the Hospital Quality Monitoring System to evaluate changes in the spectrum of non–dialysis-dependent CKD in China, we have observed an increase in the percentage of patients with CKD due to diabetes, which has exceeded that of CKD due to glomerulonephritis since 2011, as well as an increase in hypertensive nephropathy and, in some regions, obstructive kidney disease (mostly associated with kidney stones). The growth of noncommunicable diseases under profound societal and environmental changes has shifted the spectrum of CKD in China toward patterns similar to those of developed countries, which will have enormous impacts on the Chinese health care system. There is much to be done regarding public health interventions, including the establishment of a national CKD surveillance system, improvement in the management of diabetes and hypertension, and enhancement of the affordability and accessibility of kidney replacement therapy.

This study aimed to delineate changes in the patterns of prolonged grief severity in widowed adults following group bereavement interventions and to identify the predictive factors impacting these patterns. We performed a secondary analysis of data from a randomized trial of 125 Chinese widowed older adults who participated in either Loss-oriented or Dual Process group bereavement interventions. Self-ratings of prolonged grief symptoms via Inventory of Complicated Grief were subjected to latent class growth analysis to identify subgroups according to symptomatic changes among baseline, post-treatment and 8-week follow-up. ...

CONCLUSION: According to the high percentage of patients diagnosed with vision-threatening DR in this study, an early diagnosis of this complication of diabetes seems to be important. Teleophthalmology enhances patient accessibility to the healthcare system, making early diagnosis of DR easier, with a high degree of satisfaction among patients and healthcare professionals.

GillAbstractThis paper examines the extent to which childhood circumstances contribute to health inequality in old age and how the contributions may vary across key dimensions of health. We link the China Health and Retirement Longitudinal Study (CHARLS) in 2013 and 2015 with its Life History Survey in 2014 to quantify health inequality due to childhood circumstances for which they have little control. We evaluate comprehensive dimensions of health ranging from cognitive health, mental ...

ConclusionsThis study provides important evidence for planners, urban designers, and policy makers on the significance of built environment, in general, and street network configuration, in particular, within home- and school-environments. One rule of thumb would be to design a well-connected street network with relatively denser connections and reduced direction changes within the neighbourhood – not only within a couple of blocks of homes and schools but also within their larger fabric (800–1600 mt buffers).
