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 ...
An unusual case of severe high anion gap metabolic acidosis
We present a case of high anion gap metabolic acidosis with an unusual aetiology in a 75-year-old lady with hypoglycaemia, encephalopathy and relatively preserved renal function. Full toxicology and biochemical analysis ...
Risk profile in chronic kidney disease stage 3: older versus younger patients.
BACKGROUND: The prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) increases with age, but its significance in older patients is uncertain and is regarded by some as part of 'normal aging'. Moreover, subjects ≥75 years are often ...
Use of online conductivity monitoring to study sodium mass balance in chronic haemodialysis patients: prospects for treatment individualisation.
BACKGROUND: Failure to achieve isonatric haemodialysis (HD) drives an expansion of extracellular volume leading to increased interdialytic weight gain (IDWG). This may be a causative factor in the development of HD-induced ...
