Hyperuricaemia refers to an abnormally high concentration of uric acid in serum [1], typically defined as>7  mg/dL (416 μmol/L) in men and>6  mg/dL in women [1]. Mean serum uric acid has increased progressively over the last century in many populations and the prevalence of hyperuricemia increases with age and is higher in men than premenopausal women [1], as oestrogen increases urate excretion by the kidneys. Hyperuricaemia is usually discussed in the context of gout, but it is increasingly recognised that serum uric acid values>5.0  mg/dL (men) or 4.5 mg/dL (postmenopausal women) are clinically rele...

Conclusion A great deal of progress is being made in the matter of treating aging: in advocacy, in funding, in the research and development. It can never be enough, and it can never be fast enough, given the enormous cost in suffering and lost lives. 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...

Authors: Gupta R, Sharma KK, Soni S, Gupta N, Khedar RS Abstract Background: Hypertension is highly prevalent in India but frequency of resistant hypertension has not been well studied. Methods: We performed a registry-based study at a single center in patients with primary diagnosis of hypertension (n=3073). Details of co-morbidities, medications and blood pressure (BP) control were obtained. Patients with coronary heart disease, cerebrovascular disease and chronic kidney disease were excluded. Resistant hypertension was defined as uncontrolled hypertension (BP ≥140/90) with use of 3 drugs of which one was ...

This study examined whether self-monitoring can reduce clinic BP in patients with hypertension-related co-morbidity. METHODS: A systematic review was conducted of articles published in Medline, Embase and the Cochrane Library up to January 2018. Randomised controlled trials of self-monitoring of BP were selected and individual patient data (IPD) were requested. Contributing studies were prospectively categorised by whether they examined a low/high intensity co-intervention. Change in BP and likelihood of uncontrolled BP at 12-months were examined according to number and type of hypertension-related co-morbidity in a o...

DISCUSSION: Pregnancy in women with ESRD is complicated by increased adverse maternal and fetal outcomes, these remain high in women with kidney disease notwithstanding advances in obstetric and neonatal care. A HD condition seems to be related to worse outcomes. Preconception counseling and tight control after conception, including multidisciplinary evaluation and individualized therapy should be done.

Rationale: Patients with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) receiving maintenance dialysis experience an overall burden of physical and emotional symptoms. However, there were limited alternative treatments to dialysis. Patient concerns: A 79-year-old woman with chronic kidney disease stage 5 (CKD5) and gout had refused to be on dialysis. She also had hypoglycemia, hypertension, and heart disease. Diagnoses: The patient had received the ultrasonography, the renal biopsy and biochemical examinations, confirming the diagnosis of renal impairment, primary hypertension, and chronic nephritic syndrome with unspecified morp...
