           Patients
    • Authors: nephuser
      Abstract: Guest Contributor Jessica Coleman, MD As a practicing nephrologist, I often see chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients with hyperkalemia—defined as a serum potassium level >5.0 mEq/L. That is not surprising given that the prevalence of hyperkalemia among patients with CKD is considerably higher than in the general population—40% to 50% versus 2% to 3%.1 These ...The post The Case for a Paradigm Shift in the Management Hyperkalemia for CKD Patients appeared first on Nephrology Times.

    • Authors: nephuser
      Abstract: I still remember the excitement expressed by our company’s first client that purchased new, smaller home dialysis machines nearly 20 years ago. While the machines were expensive and would require patients to receive more frequent treatments, the patients’ quality of life would improve significantly, according to the company’s sales representative. Instead of being tied to ...The post From the Field: More Frequent Dialysis Appears Dead for Now appeared first on Nephrology Times.

  • Study Protocol: The ACT (Active Care after Transplantation) Trial
    • Authors: nephuser
      Abstract: Individuals who have undergone renal transplantation often experience low physical activity, reduced physical fitness, and reduced physical functioning. In the early stages of chronic kidney disease, patients have declines in levels of physical activity; at progression to end-stage renal disease (ESRD), physical activity levels have further declined in the majority of patients. Patients with ESRD ...The post Study Protocol: The ACT (Active Care after Transplantation) Trial appeared first on Nephrology Times.

  • Everolimus Exposure Combined with Low Dose Tacrolimus for Efficacy and
           Safety
    • Authors: nephuser
      Abstract: Immunosuppressive agents are key in ensuring long-term graft survival in renal transplant recipients. Clinicians seek to achieve a balance between a low rate of acute rejections and avoidance of toxicities related to immunosuppression. The mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) inhibitors bind to the immunophilin FKBP12, blocking the activity of mTOR, a serine threonine protein kinase ...The post Everolimus Exposure Combined with Low Dose Tacrolimus for Efficacy and Safety appeared first on Nephrology Times.

  • KDIGO CKD Referral Guidelines: Feasibility of Adherence
    • Authors: nephuser
      Abstract: Early referral of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) to specialist nephrology care is associated with benefits that include reduced mortality at 3 months to 5 years of follow-up, reduced costs, reduced length of stay among hospitalized patients, increased quality of life, and earlier placement of preferred dialysis access. One objective of the US Office ...The post KDIGO CKD Referral Guidelines: Feasibility of Adherence appeared first on Nephrology Times.
