Iron supplementation associates with low mortality in pre-dialyzed advanced chronic kidney disease patients receiving erythropoiesis-stimulating agents: a nationwide database analysis

Background A risk/benefit analysis of iron supplementation in pre-dialysis advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients has not been conducted. We aim to assess the effectiveness and the safety of iron supplementation in patients with CKD Stage 5 who have not yet received dialysis (CKD 5 ND).

Introduction and Aims: Psychiatric and neurological disorders are highly prevalent in the dialysis population. We postulated that because the presence of serious psychiatric and neurological disorders may have a negative impact on patient self-care, these conditions may be associated with higher rates of vascular access (VA) infections. Methods: DOPPS phase 4 (2009-2011...

CKD GENERAL AND CLINICAL EPIDEMIOLOGY 1

Introduction and Aims: In hemodialysis (HD) patients low pre-HD serum sodium (SNa+) and high Na+ gradients have been associated with higher mortality. Increased pre-HD SNa+ variability has been linked to mortality, while stable SNa+ levels are associated with better survival. Here we investigated the joint relationship of SNa+ variability (expressed as standard deviation, SD) and...
