The longevity industry is really only just getting started in the grand scheme of things: it looks vast to those of us who followed the slow, halting progress in aging research that was the state of things a decade or two ago. But it is still tiny compared to the rest of the medical industry, and it remains the case that there is a great deal of work yet to be done at all...

Abstract The Kidney Disease Quality of Life Short Form 36 (KDQOL-36) is a self-reported measure of health for patients with chronic kidney disease. Our goal was to develop an Arabic version of KDQOL-36 that is linguistically and conceptually equivalent to the original English version. We translated KDQOL-36 into formal Arabic language using forward and backward translation. To assess conceptual equivalence, we administered the Arabic and English versions simultaneously to a group of 10 bilingual patients. To assess test-re-test reliability, we administered the instrument twice to a group of 10 hemodialysis (HD) pa...

CONCLUSION: Genetic testing of presymptomatic patients for ADTKD is reasonable when requested. This study provides reassurance regarding the impact on QOL of the increased use of genetic testing to diagnose kidney disease. ADTKD has a significant impact on QOL, with depression, not anxiety, being more prevalent in affected individuals.
