Experiences of the Dietary Management of Serum Potassium in Chronic Kidney Disease: Interviews With UK Adults on Maintenance Hemodialysis

Dietary potassium restrictions in kidney disease are complex to follow and may reduce quality of life. However, details on this impact are sparse. We therefore sought to explore patients ’ perspectives on the experienced impact of following low-potassium diets, to inform clinical practice and research.

Authors: Vijayvergiya R, Kanabar K, Kaushal S, Lal A, Krishnan S Abstract A 42-year-old female with end-stage chronic kidney disease, who was on maintenance hemodialysis for the last 3 years, presented with facial and upper-limb swelling of 2-month duration. A computed tomography (CT) scan confirmed significant stenosis of the superior vena cava (SVC). Following discussion in a multidisciplinary meeting, it was proposed to perform a repeat endovascular intervention to relieve the SVC obstruction and manage the migrated stent.

Authors: Intas G, Rokana V, Stergiannis P, Chalari E, Anagnostopoulos F Abstract BACKGROUND: Chronic illnesses with high level of disability can affect not only the patients but also the main caregiver who supports them. The aim of this study was to investigate the burden and sleep disorders of family caregivers of hemodialysis patients. METHODS: This is a cross-sectional study. The sample of the study consisted of 310 family caregivers of hemodialysis patients. The tools used were the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) for sleep disorders assessment, the Zarit Burden Interview, and the Center for Epidemiolo...

CONCLUSION: Even though prebiotic RS supplementation did not influence IAA levels or AhR expression, their positive association reinforces a possible interaction between them. PMID: 32459282 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Galindo RJ, Beck RW, Scioscia MF, Umpierrez GE, Tuttle KR Abstract Glucose and insulin metabolism in patients with diabetes are profoundly altered by advanced chronic kidney disease. Risk of hypoglycemia is increased by failure of kidney gluconeogenesis, impaired insulin clearance by the kidney, defective insulin degradation due to uremia, increased erythrocyte glucose uptake during hemodialysis, impaired counter-regulatory hormone responses (cortisol, growth hormone), nutritional deprivation and variability of exposure to oral anti-hyperglycemic agents and exogenous insulin. Patients with end stage kidney...

AbstractCoronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has rapidly spread not only in China but throughout the world. Children with kidney failure (chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage 5) are at significant risk for COVID-19. In turn, a set of recommendations for the prevention and control of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and COVID-19 in pediatric hemodialysis (HD) centers and in home peritoneal dialysis (PD) settings have been proposed. The recommendations are based on the epidemiological features of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and COVID-19 disease, susceptibility factors, and preventive and control strateg...

AbstractIn this paper we present a case of a 65-year-old man, with chronic kidney insufficiency treated with hemodialysis, found dead by his wife, lying in his bed. Based on autopsy findings, toxicological analysis, the police report and circumstances of death, it was concluded that the death was suicidal and that the cause of death was hemorrhagic shock due to fatal blood loss through a small puncture wound in an arteriovenous fistula of the left forearm, inflicted by a small Swiss Army knife. Similarly to occupation-related suicides, the victim had used his knowledge about chronic kidney disease and the relatively high p...

In this study, we aimed to investigate the effect of paricalcitol and calcitriol usage on vitamin D receptor (VDR) contents of CD8+  , CD4+ lymphocytes and monocytes in stage 5d chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients.MethodsThirty-six hemodialysis patients older than 18  years of age and 19 healthy controls (group HC) without any known acute or chronic diseases were included in the study. The group of patients undergoing scheduled hemodialysis comprised three subgroups: group CL: patients on calcitriol (n: 10), group PC: patients on paricalcitol (n: 13), and group NT: patients not taking any vitamin D or ...
