Urinary Erythrocyte-Derived miRNAs: Emerging Role in IgA Nephropathy
Hematuria is one of the basic clinical manifestations of IgA nephropathy (IgAN). Isolated microscopic hematuria or microscopic hematuria combined with proteinuria is risk factor for the long-term prognosis of IgAN. Current evidence of the consequences of glomerular hematuria rests on insights from basic research on the molecular mechanisms of hemoglobin and related reactive oxygen species-induced tubular injury as well as on the clinical evidence of macroscopic hematuria –associated acute kidney injury (AKI) in IgAN. These researches may simply elucidate some effects of macroscopic hematuria but not microscopic hemat...

Suboptimal fluid intake may require enhanced release of antidiuretic hormone (ADH) or vasopressin for the maintenance of adequate hydration.
