Analysis of Different Thermal Processing Methods of Foodstuffs to Optimize Protein, Calcium, and Phosphorus Content for Dialysis Patients
To analyze how different thermal processing methods affect the protein, calcium, and phosphorus content of hospital food served to dialysis patients and to generate recommendations for preparing menus that optimize nutritional content while minimizing the risk of hyperphosphatemia.
Conclusion: In PD patients, expression of peritoneal TJ proteins can be estimated from the dialysis effluent and may be used as novel peritoneal biomarkers. PMID: 31724477 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: In patients with PAD, OS was largely defined by comorbidities but not by lesion location. The background risk factors, underlying comorbidities, and event rates were different according to PAD location, suggesting that stratified treatment should be established for different patient populations.

CONCLUSIONS: This model demonstrated favorable short- and long-term clinical benefits associated with the use of ERC in patients with CKD Stage 3 and 4 with SHPT and VDI, suggesting ERC may be cost-effective from the Medicare perspective compared to paricalcitol.

This study aims to analyze the prevalence and to concentrate on the key risk factors that are responsible for hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in patients on HD visiting two dialysis centers in the city of Quetta in southwestern Pakistan. The overall incidence of HBV was found to be 16.1%, the overall incidence of HCV was found to be 43.2%, and two patients (1.6%) were found to be positive for both HBV and HCV. HIV was not found among patients seen at both hospitals during the study period. The main risk factors for development of a viral infection were the ...
Few patients who begin emergency dialysis make an early transition to home care, but those who do tend to start the procedure in a center that has programs to support the move, new research suggests.Reuters Health Information

Guarino, Nefrocenter Research Study Group: Nephrologists, Diabetologists, NursesSummaryDiabetes Mellitus (DM) is the most common cause of renal failure and ESRD all over the world, and often requires an individualized insulin treatment regimen. Malnutrition, depression-related eating behavior changes, high on-off-dialysis day-to-day glycemic variability and frequent hypoglycemic events occurring during or immediately after dialy...
CONCLUSION: Over time on dialysis, use of non-CPB increased and medication costs increased accordingly. Many patients continued to change drugs between CPBs and non-CPBs due to the restricted criteria of the health insurance. Further outcome research is necessary to evaluate the appropriateness of the clinical practice in which CPBs and non-CPBs are alternately used. . PMID: 31724531 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsA progressively positive fluid balance is associated with AKI, and de novo dialysis in patients undergoing cardiac or aortic surgery.
We examined the role of iron deficiency and inflammation in RLS in pediatric CKD.Methods:This cross-sectional study examined RLS prevalence in three groups of pediatric patients with CKD: nontransplant, nondialysis CKD (estimated GFR
We present the case of a man on continuous cycler peritoneal dialysis with disabling fatigue and moderate restless legs syndrome (RLS). Actigraphy demonstrated excessive nocturnal movement. Unattended home polysomnography, performed during his regular peritoneal dialysis, confirmed frequent nocturnal periodic limb movements with disturbed sleep. Treatment with low dose pramipexole led to improved RLS and marked improvement in his energy. Clinicians caring for patients with ESRD should have a low threshold for objective sleep assessment given that sleep disorders are common, disabling and eminently amenable to treatment.Cit...
