  • Kidney Markers and Cognitive Impairment: SPRINT Study Baseline Data
    • Authors: nephuser
      Abstract: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) among older adults affects as many as 26 million individuals in the United States. As the worldwide population ages, the prevalence of CKD increases, possibly reflecting the accompanying increase in cardiovascular risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes, and obesity. CKD stage 3 or 4 affects nearly 11% of individuals 60 to ...The post Kidney Markers and Cognitive Impairment: SPRINT Study Baseline Data appeared first on Nephrology Times.

  • Risk of Bone Fracture Assessed Using Modified Creatinine Index
    • Authors: nephuser
      Abstract: Individuals with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are at increased risk for bone fracture compared with the general population. Part of the reason for the increase in risk for patients with CKD is bone fragility, mediated by various complex pathologic states including CKD-mineral bone disorder and uremic osteoporosis. Previous epidemiologic studies have clarified the risk factors ...The post Risk of Bone Fracture Assessed Using Modified Creatinine Index appeared first on Nephrology Times.

  • Serum Potassium Level Varies by Race in Recent Observational Study
    • Authors: nephuser
      Abstract: Potassium is essential for maintaining normal neuromuscular functioning, preserving fluid volumes in cells, and regulating blood pH. Out of normal range potassium levels are associated with an increased risk of all-cause and cardiovascular mortality, and cardiac arrhythmias and end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Recent studies have found that serum potassium levels are, on average, lower in ...The post Serum Potassium Level Varies by Race in Recent Observational Study appeared first on Nephrology Times.

  • MMF Effective in Maintaining Remission from Proliferative Lupus Nephritis
    • Authors: nephuser
      Abstract: In the 10 years following a diagnosis of systematic lupus erythematosus, 20% to 75% of patients experience kidney involvement. In the 1950s, 5-year survival for patients with lupus erythematosus was 90%. Lupus nephritis is now considered a chronic illness, giving ...The post MMF Effective in Maintaining Remission from Proliferative Lupus Nephritis appeared first on Nephrology Times.

  • Cost-Effectiveness of Vascular Access Referral Policies Varies by Age
    • Authors: nephuser
      Abstract: The gold standard of vascular access for hemodialysis has long been an arteriovenous fistula (AVF). Use of an AVF for hemodialysis access is associated with lower mortality and morbidity as well as higher quality of life compared with access via an arteriovenous graft (AVG) or central venous catheter (CVC). Of late, there has been debate ...The post Cost-Effectiveness of Vascular Access Referral Policies Varies by Age appeared first on Nephrology Times.

  • Determining the Burden of Acute Kidney Injury Using Large Databases
    • Authors: nephuser
      Abstract: In a recent review, Simon Sawhney, MBChB, University of Aberdeen United Kingdom, and Simon D. Fraser, DM, University of Southampton, United Kingdom, presented a review of recent large database studies focusing on the epidemiology of acute kidney injury (AKI); the researchers also addressed the advantages and drawbacks of using routine health data in observational research. ...The post Determining the Burden of Acute Kidney Injury Using Large Databases appeared first on Nephrology Times.

  • Risks for Adverse Events in a Population of Patients with Advanced CKD
    • Authors: nephuser
      Abstract: Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are at high risk for adverse outcomes that can include end-stage renal disease, cardiovascular events, and death. Patients with lower estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and/or higher albuminuria are generally at higher risk. However, according to Morgan E. Grams, MD, PhD, and colleagues, the absolute risks for ESRD, cardiovascular ...The post Risks for Adverse Events in a Population of Patients with Advanced CKD appeared first on Nephrology Times.

  • High Levels of Serum Triglycerides Associated with Incidence and
           Progression of CKD
    • Authors: nephuser
      Abstract: Journal of Renal Nutrition. 2107;27(6):381-394 There are few data available on the association of serum triglycerides (TGs) and consumption of alcohol with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Kazuhiko Tsuruya, MD, PhD, and colleagues conducted a longitudinal cohort study designed to examine the association of TGs and alcohol consumption with CKD in the general population. Study participants ...The post High Levels of Serum Triglycerides Associated with Incidence and Progression of CKD appeared first on Nephrology Times.

  • Patient Networks Promote Living Donor Transplantation Conversations
    • Authors: nephuser
      Abstract: New Orleans—Ideas, attitudes, and behaviors are known to spread within social networks; however, there are few available data on the structure and influence of social networks within the framework of hemodialysis clinics. Avrum Gillespie, MD, and colleagues utilized a survey and observational data to examine the role of patient hemodialysis social networks and discussions of ...The post Patient Networks Promote Living Donor Transplantation Conversations appeared first on Nephrology Times.
