Heavy metals and pesticides in chronic kidney disease – Results from a matched case –control study from a rural population in Shivamogga district in South India

Conclusions: There was no statistical significant association between any of the studied heavy metals and CKD, although there was a significant burden of heavy metals in the studied subjects.

Conclusions: The intake of calcium, folic acid and magnesium was negatively associated with blood glucose levels in individuals in different quantiles of FPG. Appropriate prevention and treatment strategies should be developed for people with different blood glucose levels. PMID: 31983911 [PubMed]

Topal, Dayna McManusAbstractA 78 year old man developed a methicillin sensitive Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA) post-operative wound infection following an elective L2-L4 laminectomy. He was treated with surgical debridement which was to be followed by a planned 6 weeks course of cefazolin. However, two weeks post debridement, a follow-up MRI revealed an L3-L5 epidural abscess, septic arthritis and vertebral osteomyelitis prompting repeat surgical debridement. No purulence was noted, and operative cultur...

CONCLUSION: Our results indicate the potential role of immediate (5 min) or early (15 min) acquisition in replacement of standardized 240 minutes acquisition in PD patients, but this result is not confirmed in HF patients, in which the acquisition at 240 min is confirmed as the most affordable timing for image interpretation, emphasizing the different pathophysiology that underlies these two pathologies.

HIGH blood pressure is affecting seven million British people who are currently unaware they even have the health condition. The British Heart Foundation adds that most people with the condition "feel fine". So how do you recognise if you've got a high reading or not, how to measure your reading, and why can an untreated high reading be dangerous?

In this study, we investigated the genetic contribution to renal disease in Tiwi Islanders by conducting a GWAS, in which associations were tested between SNP genetic variants and single measure ACR levels. A number of nominally significantly associated SNPs were identified. These SNPs did not reach genome wide significance, probably due to the small sample size. The top eight SNPs were re-tested for association in a separately collected cohort from the same population. Four of these SNPs were significantly associated with ACR in the replication sample (p

Abstract BACKGROUND: Hematuria may indicate nondiabetic renal disease in diabetic chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, some studies have reported that hematuria is noted in diabetic nephropathy and is associated with albuminuria. Hematuria is a risk factor for end-stage renal disease in glomerulonephritis, but its prognostic value in diabetic CKD is unknown. We investigated the factors associated with hematuria and the prognostic value of hematuria in patients with diabetic CKD. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We included 1958 patients with type 2 diabetes and CKD stages 1-5, and 111 patients underwent renal biopsy. ...

In mammals, 15 members of the galectin family have been identified and classified into three subtypes according to CRD organization: prototype, tandem repeat-type and chimera-type galectins. Galectin-3 (gal-3) is the only chimera type galectin in vertebrates containing one CRD linked to a...
