Multimorbidity in people with chronic kidney disease: implications for outcomes and treatment.
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: With ageing populations, the prevalence of multimorbidity is increasing. This review discusses recent developments in the understanding of multimorbidity in the context of chronic kidney disease (CKD). ...
High sodium intake is associated with important risk factors in a large cohort of chronic kidney disease patients.
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: An increased risk of mortality and cardiovascular disease (CVD) is observed in people with chronic kidney disease (CKD) even in early stages. Dietary sodium intake has been associated with important ...
National trends in acute kidney injury requiring dialysis in England between 1998 and 2013.
Acute kidney injury (AKI) severe enough to require dialysis is increasing and associated with high mortality, yet robust information about temporal epidemiology of AKI requiring dialysis in England is lacking. In this ...
Arterial stiffness in chronic kidney disease: an update.
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Epidemiological studies have established arterial stiffness as an important risk factor for cardiovascular events and mortality in people with chronic kidney disease (CKD) at all stages. Although much ...
Progress in risk prediction for people with chronic kidney disease.
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Chronic kidney disease is common, but the associated risk of adverse outcomes is heterogeneous and methods for risk stratification are, therefore, required. We have reviewed recent progress in developing ...
Tissue advanced glycation end product deposition after kidney transplantation.
BACKGROUND: Tissue advanced glycation end products (AGEs) accumulate in chronic kidney disease (CKD) and are a measure of cumulative metabolic stress. Measurement of tissue AGEs by skin autofluorescence (SAF) correlates ...
Skin autofluorescence and the association with renal and cardiovascular risk factors in chronic kidney disease stage 3.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Tissue advanced glycation end products (AGE) accumulation is a measure of cumulative metabolic stress. Assessment of tissue AGE by skin autofluorescence (SAF) correlates well with cardiovascular ...
Chronic kidney disease in general populations and primary care: diagnostic and therapeutic considerations.
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The majority of people with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are managed by primary care physicians and nurses, but much of the initial research on CKD care was based in secondary care. The purpose of this ...
Tissue-advanced glycation end product concentration in dialysis patients.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Tissue-advanced glycation end products (AGE) are a measure of cumulative metabolic stress. Assessment of tissue AGE by skin autofluoresence (AF) correlates well with cardiovascular outcomes in ...
International Criteria for Acute Kidney Injury: Advantages and Remaining Challenges.
Nicholas Selby and colleagues describe how the definition of acute kidney injury brings opportunities and challenges in identifying patients at higher risk of adverse outcomes.
