This study analyzed the prevalence, costs and economic impact of chronic kidney disease CKD in patients with T2D in a Spanish Health District using real-world data. Observational cross-sectional study in adult patients with T2D was through data extracted from the information systems of the Valencia Clínico–La Malvarrosa Health District in the year 2015. Patients were stratified with the KDIGO classification for CKD. Additionally, patients were assigned to Clinical Risk Groups (CRGs) according to multimorbidity. Direct costs of primary and specialized care, and medication were estimated. The prevalence of T2D i...

CONCLUSION: Finerenone has direct anti-fibrotic properties resulting in reduced myofibroblast and collagen deposition accompanied by a reduction in renal PAI-1 and NKD2 expression in mouse models of progressive kidney fibrosis at blood pressure-independent dosages.PMID:34515038 | DOI:10.1159/000518254

CONCLUSION: Four easy-to-use screening scores for DM and CKD are well-validated in contemporary United States and Korean populations. Prevention of DM and CKD may serve as first-step in public health, with these self-assessment tools as basic tools to help health education and disparity.PMID:34503311 | DOI:10.4093/dmj.2021.0054

Purpose of review People with T2 Diabetes (T2D) who follow a low carbohydrate diet (LCD) may increase their dietary protein intake. Dietary protein can modulate renal function so there is debate about its role in renal disease. There is concern that higher protein intakes may promote renal damage, and that LCDs themselves may impact on cardiovascular risk. We review the evidence around LCDs, renal and cardiovascular risk factors and compare to results obtained in a real-world, primary care setting. Recent findings Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a well-recognised microvascular complication of T2D caused in part ...
