Diabetes Remission and Kidney Disease in Bariatric Surgery Patients

Diagnosing Acute Hepatic Porphyria with Renal Injury Biomarkers

Defects in enzymes in the heme biosynthesis pathway are associated with acute hepatic porphyria (AHP), a group of rare genetic diseases. The most common subtype of AHP is acute intermittent porphyria (AIP), associated with...
Dr. Khanna Discusses Short-term Concomitant Use of Mycophenolate Mofetil with Pegloticase in Gout

Online Education to Improve Management of Patients with Gout

Patients with gout experience considerable negative effects on health and quality of life. There are known associations between hyperuricemia and gout and declining renal function. Results of recent studies have suggested that renal dysfunction...

Frequency of Kidneys Allocated Out of Sequence

Allocation of deceased donor kidneys follows a ranked match-run list of potential recipients. The frequency of deviation by organ procurement organizations (OPOs) from the mandated match-run in exceptional circumstances is unknown. Kristen L. King and...
Prevalence of Pica in Patients on Dialysis and Associated Nutritional Status Examined

Dialysis Disequilibrium Syndrome in Patients on Hemodialysis

Patients who have missed multiple dialysis treatments, particularly those who have initiated dialysis recently, are at risk for dialysis disequilibrium syndrome (DDS), which presents as a rare neurological complication. According to Rupesh Raina, MD,...
Kidney Transplant Improves Cardiovascular Reserve, But Not For Reasons You Might Think

Excess Vitamin C and AKI in Hyperoxaluria

The causes of secondary hyperoxaluria, which can manifest as end-stage renal disease or hypothyroidism, include increased ingestion of oxalate or oxalate precursors, increased oxalate enteric absorption due to fat malabsorption, or changes in intestinal...

Risk of COVID-19 among Patients Treated with RAAS Inhibitors

Researchers have hypothesized that direct viral invasion of the kidney via angiotensin converting enzyme is a mechanism of acute kidney injury (AKI) in patients with COVID-19. There are few data available on the impact...
Association of Plasma Metabolites and Lipids with Kidney Function in Early ADPKD

Dialysis Modality and Heart Surgery Outcomes

Poor outcomes following cardiac surgery are more common among patients with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) receiving dialysis than in the non-dialysis population. However, according to Elias Bassil, MD, and colleagues, there are few data...

The Role of Intensive Cardiac Rehabilitation in Resistant Hypertension

Intradialytic Hypertension and Risk of Long-Term Mortality

Hypertension is a common comorbidity among patients receiving maintenance dialysis. Increases in systolic blood pressure from pre- to post-hemodialysis (intradialytic hypertension) occur in a...

Age-Adapted Definition of Chronic Kidney Disease

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is associated with substantial morbidity, mortality, and healthcare costs worldwide. The diagnosis of CKD in adults is based on the...

COVID May Trigger Heart Condition in Young Athletes

A heart condition, myocarditis, has been found in a number of U.S. college athletes who have had COVID-19, a new study finds. Myocarditis has also...

Measuring Risk Tolerance in Potential Living Kidney Donors

In the face of a shortage of deceased donor kidneys, coupled with the superior outcomes associated with living donor transplants, the transplant community is...
Current, Recent SARS-CoV-2 Infection May Up VTE Risk After Surgery

SARS-CoV-2 Seroprevalence in Dialysis Patients 1-Year after COVID-19 Pandemic Onset

In the United States, cases of COVID-19, hospitalizations, and deaths overwhelmed health systems. More than 25 million cases of COVID-19 and more than 500,000...

Blood Pressure Standardization is the Key to Managing BP in CKD patients

Managing blood pressure is probably the most important intervention that a nephrologist pursues in slowing kidney progression and reducing cardiovascular risk in CKD patients. The...

Biomarkers of Immune Activation and Risk of Kidney Failure

Worldwide, chronic kidney disease (CKD) affects approximately 697.5 million adults. Patients who progress from early stage CKD to kidney failure with replacement therapy (KFRT)...
