Skin autofluorescence and all-cause mortality in stage 3 CKD.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Novel markers may help to improve risk prediction in CKD. One potential candidate is tissue advanced glycation end product accumulation, a marker of cumulative metabolic stress, which can be ...
Acute kidney: improving the pathway of care for patients and across healthcare.
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is common, harmful and of global concern. There is a need to understand the pathway of the management of AKI in order to identify potential areas where care can be improved, for ...
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 ...
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 ...
Intensive Hemodialysis and Treatment Complications and Tolerability
Hemodialysis (HD) treatment can be difficult to tolerate. Common complications are intradialytic hypotension (IDH) and long time to recovery after an HD session. IDH, as defined by nadir systolic blood pressure < 90mmHg ...
Intensive Hemodialysis and Health-Related Quality of Life.
Diminished health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is common in dialysis patients and associated with increased risks for morbidity and mortality. Patients may present limitations in both physical and mental HRQoL. Poor ...
The impact of vitamin D status on the relative increase in fibroblast growth factor 23 and parathyroid hormone in chronic kidney disease.
Fibroblast growth factor (FGF) 23 is an important regulator of phosphaturia. Its serum level was found to increase before that of parathyroid hormone (PTH) in early chronic kidney disease (CKD) in some but not all previous ...
What is the value of multidisciplinary care for chronic kidney disease?
In a Persepctive, Richard Fluck and Maarten Taal discuss the potential value of implementing multidisciplinary care programs for chronic kidney disease.
The burden of comorbidity in people with chronic kidney disease stage 3: a cohort study.
BACKGROUND: Multimorbidity is a growing concern for healthcare systems, with many countries experiencing demographic transition to older population profiles. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is common but often considered in ...
