Diabetes - clinical

Introduction and Aims: Obesity and metabolic syndrome (MET-S) are associated with an increased prevalence of kidney disease. Despite being a major metabolically active organ surprisingly little is known about renal substrate preferences in the fasting state and whether this substrate preference is affected during insulin stimulation or altered by insulin resistance. Methods: To ...

Electrolyte disorders / Nephrolithiasis

Introduction and Aims: Less than 1% of patients who are coming to the emergency department are hypernatremic, but this situation is associated with a rate of mortality ranging from 40 to 60%. Few studies have evaluated the medical practices related to the hypernatremia. The aim of this study is the evaluation of the management of hypernatremia in the emergency department. Methods: ...

ACID BASE, ION DISORDERS, LITHISASIS

Introduction and Aims: Hyperkalaemia is a risk factor for mortality in patients with cardiovascular disease and chronic kidney disease (CKD) (Goyal, 2012; Torlen, 2012) and limits use of renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibitors (RAASi) in these patients. Sodium (or calcium) polystyrene sulfonate (SPS/CPS) has uncertain efficacy and has been associated with substantial ...

Acid-base / electrolytes / nephrolithiasis

Introduction and Aims: Osmotic demyelination syndrome (ODS) is a rare but dramatic complication that occurs in chronic hyponatraemia when sodium concentrations ([Na]) are corrected too rapidly. During the past ten years, researchers have advocated lowering the traditional limits of 12 and 18 mmol/L in 24 and 48h to minimize the risk of ODS. ERBP aimed to identify the evidence for ...

CKD LAB METHODS, PROGRESSION & RISK FACTORS 2

Introduction and Aims: Despite decades of research, our complete understanding of the determinants and natural history of CKD-ESRD progression is immature. CKD to ESRD progression is unanimously and classically depicted as a predictable, linear, progressive and time-dependent decline in renal function, ultimately leading to ESRD and the need for RRT. The National Kidney Foundation ...

PRIMARY AND SECONDARY GLOMERULONEPHRITIDES 1

Introduction and Aims: Loss of podocytes in primary glomerulopathies is crucial for glomerulosclerosis progression which leads to end-stage renal failure in such patients. The mechanism of direct replacement of injured podocytes does not exist so the only way to compensate the integrity of glomerulus is change of cells shape to cover the glomerular tuft with a smaller number of ...
