Renal osteodystrophy and clinical outcomes: data from the Brazilian Registry of Bone Biopsies - REBRABO.

CONCLUSION: Hospitalization or death was not influenced by the type of RO, Al accumulation, or TMV classification. An elevated prevalence of osteoporosis and Al accumulation was detected. PMID: 31967202 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ABSTRACTWhether fracture prediction tools developed for the management of osteoporosis can be used in CKD is poorly known. We aimed to compare the performance of fracture prediction tools in non ‐CKD and CKD. We analyzed CARTaGENE, a population‐based survey of 40‐ to 69‐year‐old individuals recruited between 2009 and 2010. Renal function was assessed using baseline creatinine and categorized according to KDIGO guidelines (non‐CKD, stage 2, stage 3). Individuals without creatinin e measurements or with advanced CKD (stage 4 or 5; prevalence

Conclusion The measurement of FGF21 and FGF23 may be useful for evaluating CKD and its complications. Using serum endocrine FGFs as biomarkers for age-related conditions may help prevent elderly patients from entering a bedridden state. PMID: 32009088 [PubMed - in process]

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...

Mrs. D is an 89-year-old African American woman who has moved into the nursing home directly from her home. Her husband became ill and could no longer care for her. She has a history of heart failure and was seeing her cardiologist for weekly weights, but she stopped because she could no longer tolerate the outings. She has had multiple falls at home; most recently, she sustained a left wrist fracture. Her past medical history includes allergic rhinitis, arthritis, esophageal reflux, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, chronic kidney disease, a herniated cervical disc, osteoporosis, and situational depression.

Publication date: November 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 6Author(s): Pieter Evenepoel, Britt Opdebeeck, Karel David, Patrick C. D'HaesePatients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are at increased risk of osteoporosis and vascular calcification. Bone demineralization and vascular mineralization go often hand in hand in CKD, similar to as in the general population. This contradictory association is independent of aging and is commonly referred to as the “calcification paradox” or the bone-vascular axis. Various common risk factors and mechanisms have been identified. Alternativel...
