RESUMO

Introduction: Given the increasing prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in tuberculosis (TB) endemic areas, a merging of CKD and TB epidemics could have significant public health implications, especially in low to middle income countries like India, which is experiencing rapid increase in CKD prevalence. The aim of this study is to analyze the prevalence of TB in patients with CKD. Methods: A prospective study was done on 160 patients with CKD at Safdarjung Hospital, New Delhi, both with and without dialysis. The patients were investigated to detect any form of TB. Results: 22 patients showed evidence of tubercular infection (13.7%). Of these 22 subjects, 17 had extra-pulmonary and only 5 had pulmonary TB. TB infection was more prevalent among the patients on dialysis (18) than those who were not on dialysis (4). Conclusion: Therefore, we infer that TB is more common in patients of CKD and patients of CKD need to be screened for TB more so due to their over lapping signs and symptoms.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Dermatoglyphics has been used widely in fields of medicine as a non-invasive diagnostic tool and an early assessment of risk for certain medical conditions. It reflects disturbances in fetal development during early prenatal weeks 14-22 when fingerprints develop. Dermatoglyphic asymmetry has been used to measure developmental instability during a specific period of human fetal development. Thus, the present study was planned to investigate whether digital and palmar dermatoglyphics of chronic kidney disease of unknown origin (CKDu) patients in Sri Lanka are different from healthy people. METHODS: A case control study was carried out among CKDu patients (90 males, 90 females) from a CKDu endemic area and gender-matched two control groups; one group from a CKDu endemic region (90 males, 90 females) and another group from a CKDu non-endemic region (90 males, 90 females). Dermatoglyphics were obtained using photographic methods. Both qualitative and quantitative dermatoglyphic variables were defined and analyzed according to standard criteria. Both directional (DA) and fluctuating asymmetry (FA) were assessed. RESULTS: Several qualitative dermatoglyphic variables had significant association with CKDu. The triradii a1 variable was less evident in palms of CKDu cases in both genders when compared to both control groups. The FA of pattern discordance (right vs left hands) between CKDu cases and control group were significant in several digits. The FA of the ridge count was found significant in several digits, and also significant for A-B ridge count and total ridge count. CONCLUSION: Based on these results, it is proposed that the mechanisms responsible for the development of CKDu might be associated with those responsible for FA observed in CKDu patients. Accordingly, a diagnostic tool based on FA could be developed for predicting risk prior to the development of CKDu.

RESUMO

Most of the mortalities among Diabetic Nephropathy patients are cardiovascular, if we identify the risk factor, measures can be taken to prevent it. Hence an objective was set to evaluate the association between carotid artery intima media thickness (CIMT) with eGFR in patients of CKD stage III, IV and V among patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus; also, correlation with age, BMI, lipid profile. This cross-sectional, observational study was performed in 70 patients in different stages of CKD in Diabetic Patients selected by Inclusion Criteria (Diabetic nephropathy patients with stages III, IV, V and exclusion Criteria (Acute kidney injury, History of carotid surgery, Patients of MI and stroke). This study was performed in Department of Nephrology, Dhaka Medical College in collaboration with the Department of Radiology and Imaging, laboratory of Department of Biochemistry and Department of Microbiology at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (By standard method in laboratory) from 1st January 2016 to 31st December 2016. eGFR was measured by MDRD formula and the CIMT was measured using an ultrasonographic examination. The mean CIMT was 0.9±0.21mm, and 62.9% of the subjects showed IMT thickening (≥1mm). The carotid IMT elevated significantly with the stage progression of CKD (Overall eGFR mean 28.8±14.5mL/min/1.73m² in CIMT<1mm with range from 6 to 54 and 9.1±9.0mL/min/1.73m² in CIMT ≥1mm with range from 3 to 32 (p=0.001). The eGFR was significantly lower in the patients with CIMT thickening than those without CIMT thickening. eGFR was also significantly associated with CKD stages (p=0.001), serum creatinine (p=0.001), BMI (r = -0.330, p=0.005), and negatively associated with age group, duration of hypertension, smoking. However, the CIMT was not significantly different among the patients at different stages of diabetic nephropathy (r = -0.172, p=156) and age group. It has been concluded that the mean CIMT was markedly high in patients with CKD compared to normal expected value. This study showed a relationship between the CIMT and the renal parameters as eGFR and the stages of diabetic nephropathy with a confirm association between the CIMT and diabetic macroangiopathy.

RESUMO

Detection of the chronic kidney disease (CKD) progression can begin early intervention to improve the prognosis of severe non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). This bi-directional cross-sectional study evaluates the roles of fatty acid-binding protein (FABP) and retinol binding protein (RBP4), which are produced from inflamed liver, adipose tissue and immune cells, for the prediction of CKD progression in severe NAFLD. Ninety severe NAFLD patients with hypertension and proteinuria (NAFLDHTN) were enrolled and divided into CKD (n = 39) and non-CKD groups (n = 51). Among 39 NAFLDHTN patients, 18 cases were categorized as CKD progression group. In comparison with CKD stable group (n = 21), the positive correlation between fold change values of hepatic fibrotic score (KPa), urinary FABP4 or urinary RBP4 versus severity of albuminuria were noted among CKD progression group. On multivariate analysis, high body mass index (BMI, >25 kg/m), high hepatic fibrosis score (>9.5 KPa), high urinary level of vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1, >2239 µg/g cr), high urinary level of FABP4 (>115 ng/g cr) and high urinary level of RBP4 (>33.5 mg/g cr) are 5 independent predictors for progressive CKD during 24 months of follow-up. Synergetic effect was noted among these 5 risk factors for the prediction of CKD progression in NAFLDHTN patients. The in vitro experiments revealed that both FABP4 and RBP4 directly enhanced albumin-induced ER stress and apoptosis of human renal tubular epithelial cell line HK-2 cells and human podocytes cell lines. Through clinical and experimental approaches, this study revealed new 5 synergetic predictors including high BMI, hepatic fibrosis score, urinary level of VCAM-1, urinary level of FABP4 and RBP4, for the CKD progression in severe NAFLD patients with hypertension and proteinuria.

RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: Children with a solitary post-nephrectomy kidney (SNK) are at potential risk of developing kidney disease later in life. In response to the global decline in the number of nephrons, adaptive mechanisms lead to renal injury. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence and time of onset of high blood pressure (HBP), proteinuria, glomerular filtration rate (GFR) disruption and renal tubular acidosis (RTA) in children with SNK. MATERIALS AND METHODS: After obtaining the approval from our institution's ethics committee, we reviewed the medical records of patients under 18 years of age who underwent unilateral nephrectomy between January 2005 and December 2015 in three university hospitals. RESULTS: We identifi ed 43 patients, 35 (81.4%) cases of unilateral nephrectomy (UNP) were due to a non-oncologic pathology and Wilm's tumor was identified in 8 (18.6%) cases. In patients with non-oncologic disease, 9.3% developed de novo hypertension, with an average time of onset of 7.1 years, 25% developed proteinuria de novo, with an average time of onset of 2.2 years. For GFR, 21.8% presented deterioration of the GFR in an average time of 3.4 years. Ten (43.5%) patients developed some type of de novo renal injury after UNP. Patients with oncolo-gic disease developed the conditions slowly and none of them developed proteinuria. CONCLUSIONS: Taking into account the high rate of long term postoperative renal injury, it can be considered that nephrectomy does not prevent this disease. The follow-up of children with SNK requires a multidisciplinary approach and long-term surveillance to detect renal injury.

RESUMO

Background and purpose: The aim of this study was to compare ischemic stroke subtypes with the effects of risk factors, the relationship between grades of kidney disease and the severity of stroke subtypes. Methods: The current study was designed retrospectively and performed with data of patients who were hospitalised due to ischemic stroke. We included 198 subjects who were diagnosed with ischemic stroke of Grade 3 and above with chronic kidney disease. Results: In our study were reported advanced age, coronary artery disease, moderate kidney disease as the most frequent risk factors for cardioembolic etiology. Hypertension, hyperlipidemia, smoking and alcohol consumption were the most frequent risk factors for large-artery disease. Female sex and anaemia were the most frequent risk factors for small-vessel disease. Dialysis and severe kidney disease were the most frequent risk factors in unknown etiologies, while male sex, diabetes mellitus, prior stroke and mild kidney disease were the most frequent risk factors for other etiologies. National Institute of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) scores were lower for small-vessel disease compared with other etiologies. This relation was statistically significant (p=0.002). Conclusion: In order to improve the prognosis in ischemic stroke with chronic kidney disease, the risk factors have to be recognised and the treatment options must be modified according to those risk factors.

RESUMO

Renin angiotensin aldosterone system inhibitors (RAASi) and diuretics are among the most frequently prescribed anti-hypertensives. Individuals with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are particularly at risk for electrolyte disturbances and kidney injury but the appropriate use of lab monitoring following RAASi or diuretic initiation is uncertain in CKD.We describe the frequency and time interval of lab monitoring during initiation of RAASi and diuretics in CKD and assess whether close lab monitoring associates with one-year risk of emergency department (ED) visit or hospitalization.We evaluated an observational cohort of 8,217 individuals with stage 3-5 non-dialysis CKD newly prescribed a RAASi (52.3%) or diuretic (47.7%) from thirty-six primary care offices affiliated with Brigham and Women's Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital between 2009 and 2011.Overall, 3306 (40.2%) individuals did not have pre-prescription labs done within 2 weeks, and 5957 (72.5%) did not have post-prescription labs done within 2 weeks which includes 524 (6.4%) individuals without post-prescription within 1 year. Close monitoring occurred in only 1547 (20.1%) and was more likely in individuals prescribed diuretics compared to RAASi (adjusted OR 1.39; 95%CI 1.20-1.62), with CKD stage 4,5 compared with stage 3 (adjusted OR 1.47; 95%CI 1.16-1.86) and with cardiovascular disease (adjusted OR 1.42; 95%CI 1.21-1.66). Close monitoring was not associated with decreased risk of ED visit or hospitalization.Close lab monitoring during initiation of RAASi or diuretics was more common in participants with cardiovascular disease and advanced CKD suggesting physicians selected high-risk individuals for close monitoring. As nearly 80% of individuals did not receive close lab monitoring there may be value in future research on electronic physician decision tools targeted at lab monitoring.

RESUMO

This analysis provides new estimates of chronic kidney disease (CKD) prevalence - including CKD of unknown etiology (CKDu) - across ten districts most affected by CKD in Sri Lanka, including an examination of rural households' historical reliance on groundwater consumption. A carefully designed household survey provides information on whether these households self-reported having a member in the decade prior to 2018, who had been clinically diagnosed with CKD. Households were classified according to whether or not they had used groundwater (from household wells, agro-wells or springs) as their primary source for drinking or cooking for at least five years between 1999 and 2018. More than 98% of households reported having consumed groundwater as their primary source of drinking or cooking water for at least five of those years and >15% of households reported having at least one CKD-affected member in the ten-year period up to 2018, but these numbers varied across and within districts. The reported characteristics of symptomatic individuals reveal that the incidence of CKD was significantly higher among females (62%) than males (38%). In addition to CKD, about 63% of symptomatic individuals had hypertension and about one-third of them also had diabetes. About 33% of the symptomatic individuals had neither diabetes nor hypertension, where this group most closely fits commonly used definitions of CKDu. With a survey response of over 8000 households comprising as many as 30,000 individuals, these data illustrate the scale of CKD in the most-affected districts of Sri Lanka on an aggregate basis as well as revealing differences across districts and at the sub-district level.

RESUMO

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) has become a major public health problem in the USA and worldwide. A large majority of patients with CKD have mild to moderate disease and microalbuminuria. It has increasingly been noted that patients with CKD have a significantly higher risk of cardiovascular outcomes compared to patients with normal kidney function. Many studies have shown increased risk beginning at stage 3 CKD but risk has been elevated in patients with milder degrees of kidney dysfunction in some studies. This risk may be better predicted by the degree of albuminuria in the earlier stages of CKD. Data addressing interventions to improve outcomes in patients with mild to moderate CKD are scarce. In this paper, we examined data and post hoc analyses from the ORIGIN and ACCORD trials. Data indicate that intensive treatment of diabetes in patients with CKD actually may result in adverse outcomes. The mechanism by which CKD results in increased cardiovascular risk is not clear. Patients with CKD frequently have the traditional risk factors that cause cardiovascular disease and there are mechanisms that are unique to CKD that promote the development of cardiovascular disease. In this article, we describe in some detail traditional, newer and novel risk factors that play a role in the development of CKD and heart disease.

RESUMO

Introduction: The burden of chronic kidney disease (CKD) is increasing worldwide. Few studies in low and low-middle income countries have estimated the prevalence of CKD. We aimed to estimate prevalence and factors associated with CKD among medical inpatients at the largest referral hospital in Kenya. Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional study among medical inpatients at the Kenyatta National Hospital. We used systematic sampling and collected demographic information, behavioural risk factors, medical history, underlying conditions, laboratory and imaging workup using a structured questionnaire. We estimated glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in ml/min/1.73m2 classified into 5 stages; G1 (≥ 90), G2 (60-89), G3a (45-59), G3b (30-44), G4 (15-29) and G5 (<15, or treated by dialysis/renal transplant). Ethical approval was obtained from Kenyatta National Hospital-University of Nairobi Ethics and Research Committee (KNH-UoN ERC), approval number P510/09/2017. We estimated prevalence of CKD and used logistic regression to determine factors independently associated with CKD diagnosis. Results: We interviewed 306 inpatients; median age 40.0 years (IQR 24.0), 162 (52.9%) were male, 155 (50.7%) rural residents. CKD prevalence was 118 patients (38.6%, 95% CI 33.3-44.1); median age 42.5 years (IQR 28.0), 74 (62.7%) were male, 64 (54.2%) rural residents. Respondents with CKD were older than those without (difference 4.4 years, 95% CI 3.7-8.4 years, P = 0.032). Fifty-six (47.5%) of the patients had either stage G1 or G2, 17 (14.4%) had end-stage renal disease; 64 (54.2%) had haemoglobin below 10g/dl while 33 (28.0%) had sodium levels below 135 mmol/l. ). History of unexplained anaemia (aOR 1.80, 95% CI 1.02-3.19), proteinuria (aOR 5.16, 95% CI 2.09-12.74), hematuria (aOR 7.68, 95% CI 2.37-24.86); hypertension (aOR 2.71, 95% CI 1.53-4.80) and herbal medications use (aOR 1.97, 95% CI 1.07-3.64) were independently associated with CKD. Conclusion: Burden of CKD was high among this inpatient population. Haematuria and proteinuria can aid CKD diagnosis. Public awareness on health hazards of herbal medication use is necessary.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the renal function of the Brazilian adult population, according to laboratory criteria of the National Health Survey (Pesquisa Nacional de Saúde - PNS). METHODOLOGY: A descriptive study was carried out with laboratory data from the PNS, which was collected between the years 2014 and 2015. Population prevalence of the serum creatinine (CR) and estimated glomerular filtration rate (GFR) according to sociodemographic variables, were analyzed from the PNS laboratory data. RESULTS: The sample consisted of 8,535 individuals aged 18 years old or older for the study of CR and 7,457 for the study of GFR. The GFR prevalence < 60 mL/min/1.73 m2 was 6.7% (95%CI 6.0 - 7.4), higher in women (8.2% 95%CI 7.2 - 9.2) than in men (5.0% 95%CI 4.2 - 6.0) p < 0.001, and in elderly > 60 years old it was 21.4%. For the values of CR ≥ 1.3 mg/dL in men were 5.5% (95%CI 4.6 - 6.5), and in women values of CR ≥ 1.1 mg/dL were 4.6% (95%CI 4.0 - 5.4), with no diference between the genders, p = 0.140. CONCLUSION: Results from the PNS laboratory identified a higher prevalence of chronic kidney disease in the Brazilian population than that estimated in self-reported studies, with higher GFR < 60 mL/min/1.73 m2 in women, and reaching one fifth of the elderly. These tests may be useful for the purpose of identifying the disease early on and thus preventing the progression of renal damage and reduce the risk of cardiovascular events and mortality.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) among the children with hearing disorder in Hunan province, China. METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, the multi-stage cluster sampling method was used to select 1 500 children as subjects. Questionnaire surveys, physical examinations, and laboratory examinations were performed on the spot. RESULTS: Among the 1 500 children, 1 459 with complete data were included in analysis. Among the 1 459 children, 43 had CKD, with a prevalence rate of 2.95%. The <7 years group had a significantly higher prevalence rate than the 7-14 years group [5.8% (35/604) vs 0.9% (8/855); P<0.05]. Among the 43 children with CKD, 31 (72%) had proteinuria, 27 (63%) had hematuria, and 11 (26%) had a decreased glomerular filtration rate. Among the 43 children with CKD, stage 1, 2, 3a, 3b, 4, and 5 CKD accounted for 30% (13 cases), 44% (19 cases), 12% (5 cases), 7% (3 cases), 7% (3 cases), and 0% (0 case) respectively. The prevalence rate of CKD increased with the severity of hearing disorder (P<0.01). CONCLUSIONS: The prevalence rate of CKD is higher among the children with hearing disorder in Hunan province. Most children have early-stage CKD. CKD is commonly seen in preschool children. Severity of hearing disorder is associated with the prevalence of CKD.

RESUMO

Objective: To analyze diagnosis rate of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in hospitalized pediatric patients in a single center and understand pediatricians' awareness of CKD. Methods: This was a cross-sectional study. Children who were admitted to the Division of Pediatric Nephrology, Peking University First Hospital from January 1, 2008 to December 31, 2017 and met the diagnostic criteria of CKD (kidney disease: improving global outcomes 2012 guideline) were recruited. A total of 4 472 cases were enrolled. Original CKD diagnosis was collected from the home page of medical records. Actual CKD diagnosis was validated and corrected by reviewing medical records and recalculating glomerular filtration rate. The diagnosis rate and influencing factors of pediatric CKD, the distribution and etiology of actual CKD were analyzed. The comparison between groups were performed with χ(2) test. Results: In 4 472 cases, there were 3 470 cases in actual CKD stage 1, among which only 24 cases were in original CKD stage 1. There were 543 cases in actual CKD stage 2-3, among which only 181 cases were in original CKD stage 2-3. Three hundred and one cases were in actual CKD stage 4-5, including 290 cases in original CKD stage 4-5. In addition, there were 43 cases with unknown CKD stage and 115 cases with acute kidney injury. Compared to original CKD diagnosis, the diagnosis rates of CKD stage 1-5 were 0.7% (24/3 470), 16.7% (58/348), 63.1% (123/195), 90.7% (78/86) and 98.6% (212/215), respectively. The proportions of actual CKD stage 1-5 were 80.4% (3 470/4 314), 8.1% (348/4 314), 4.5% (195/4 314), 2.0% (86/4 314) and 5.0% (215/4 314). The etiology of actual CKD included primary glomerular disease (62.2%, 2 686/4 314), secondary glomerular disease (19.7%, 849/4 314), hereditary kidney disease (9.1%, 391/4 314), congenital abnormalities of the kidney and urinary tract (CAKUT) (3.1%, 135/4 314), tubulointerstitial disease (2.2%, 94/4 314) and etiology uncertain (2.1%, 89/4 314). The leading cause of end stage renal disease was etiology uncertain (31.1%, 67/215), followed by hereditary kidney disease (24.2%, 52/215), CAKUT (16.3%, 35/215) and primary glomerular disease (16.3%, 35/215). Conclusions: Among actual CKD hospitalized pediatric patients, the diagnosis rate of CKD given by physicians at discharge was relatively low, especially patients in earlier CKD stages, which reflected serious lack of physicians' awareness of CKD.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is associated with a subclinical inflammatory state, which contributes to increased mortality in CKD patients. The purpose of this study was to examine the association between chosen cytokines, such as IFN-γ, IL-10, IL-2p70, IL-6, and kidney function as well as the body composition and nutritional markers in patients with CKD and diabetes mellitus type 2. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 21 patients with diabetes mellitus type 2 and CKD stage 3b - 5, with estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) lower than 45 mL/min/1.72m2, not being treated with dialysis were included in the study. Body composition was assessed by bioimpedance spectroscopy (Body Composition Monitor - Fresenius Medical Care). RESULTS: Significant, negative correlations between lean tissue index (LTI) and IFN-γ concentrations (r = -0.52, p = 0.021) as well as IL-6 concentrations (r = -0.46, p = 0.047) were observed. Only the IL-6 levels significantly correlated with kidney function expressed by eGFR (r = -0.47, p = 0.034). We observed a significant positive correlation between IL-6 level and IFN-γ (r = 0.51, p = 0.019) as well as with high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) levels (r = 0.48, p = 0.029). The IL-10 level significantly correlated with hsCRP (r = 0.53, p = 0.015). CONCLUSION: In CKD patients with diabetes mellitus type 2 during conservative treatment, IL-6 levels were associated with kidney function expressed by eGFR. IL-6 levels and IFN-γ levels negatively correlated with the amount of muscle mass. Cytokines did not show any association with the amount of fat tissue this study.

RESUMO

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common cause of chronic liver disease worldwide and its incidence is definitely increasing. NAFLD is a metabolic disease with extensive multi-organ involvement, whose extra-hepatic manifestations include type 2 diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease, obstructive sleep apnea, chronic kidney disease, osteoporosis, and polycystic ovarian syndrome. Recently, further evidence has given attention to pathological correlations not strictly related to metabolic disease, also incorporating in this broad spectrum of systemic involvement hypothyroidism, psoriasis, male sexual dysfunction, periodontitis, and urolithiasis. The most common cause of mortality in NAFLD is represented by cardiovascular disease, followed by liver-related complications. Therefore, clinicians should learn to screen and initiate treatment for these extra-hepatic manifestations, in order to provide appropriate multidisciplinary assessments and rigorous surveillance. This review evaluates the current evidence regarding extra-hepatic associations of NAFLD, focusing on the pathogenic hypothesis and the clinical implications.

RESUMO

AIMS: Nephropathic patients show higher levels of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) and oxidized human serum albumin (HSAox) compared to healthy subjects. These two classes of compounds are formed as the result of oxidative insults; for this reason, they can be useful oxidative stress biomarkers. The present study examines the variation of AGEs and HSAox in hemodialysis (HD) patients before and after dialysis session, evaluating the impact of different dialytic techniques and filters on their removal. METHODS: A total of 50 healthy subjects (control group) and 130 HD patients were enrolled in the study. Hemodialysis patients were subdivided based on dialytic techniques: 109 in diffusive technique and 22 in convective technique. We monitored HSAox, AGEs and other laboratory parameters at early morning in healthy subjects and in HD patients before and after the dialysis procedures. RESULTS: The level of HSAox decreases after a single dialytic session (from 58.5 ± 8.8% to 41.5 ± 11.1%), but the concentration of total AGEs increases regardless of adopted dialytic techniques (from 6.8 ± 5.2 µg/ml to 9.2 ± 4.4 µg/ml). In our study, levels of HSAox and total AGEs are similar in diabetic and non-diabetic HD patients. The increase in total AGEs after dialysis was only observed using polysulfone filters but was absent with polymethacrylate filters. CONCLUSIONS: HSAox is a simple and immediate method to verify the beneficial effect of a single dialysis session on the redox imbalance, always present in HD patients. Total AGEs assayed by ELISA procedure seem to be a less reliable biomarker in this population.

RESUMO

Introduction: Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are among the most commonly prescribed drugs worldwide. However, concerns are growing about the serious adverse events and mortality linked to their long-term use. Areas covered: The authors review the main approved clinical indications and adverse events associated with PPIs, including, among others, pneumonia, Clostridium difficile infection, cardiovascular diseases, bone fractures, kidney diseases, and several nutrient deficiencies. Recent studies have reported that patients taking PPIs displayed increased mortality, linked to cardiovascular diseases, gastrointestinal malignancies, and chronic kidney diseases. Expert opinion: PPIs represent an important advance in the medical treatment of acid-related diseases. PPIs have contributed to profound reductions in hospitalizations and mortality due to upper GI complications. However, concern is growing about the wide range of potentially serious adverse events and mortality linked to chronic PPI use. Nevertheless, the level of evidence on adverse events is low; it is based on observational studies, and most findings have not been confirmed in the limited number of clinical trials available. PPI overuse and off-label prescriptions must be eradicated, but long-term PPI use for clear indications must continue, until we have stronger evidence to support claims of serious adverse events and mortality.

RESUMO

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a complex syndrome with a variety of possible etiologies and symptoms. It is characterized by high mortality and poor recovery of renal function. The incidence and mortality rates of patients with AKI in intensive care units are extremely high. It is generally accepted that early identification and prompt treatment of AKI are essential to improve outcomes. This study aimed to develop a model based on risk stratification to identify and diagnose early stage AKI for improved prognosis in critically ill patients.This was a single-center, retrospective, observational study. Based on relevant literature, we selected 13 risk factors (age, sex, hypertension, diabetes, coronary heart disease, chronic kidney disease, total bilirubin, emergency surgery, mechanical ventilation, sepsis, heart failure, cancer, and hypoalbuminemia) for AKI assessment using the Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) diagnostic criteria. Univariate and multivariate analyses were used to determine risk factors for eventual entry into the predictive model. The AKI predictive model was established using binary logistic regression, and the area under the receiver operating characteristic curve (AUROC or AUC) was used to evaluate the predictive ability of the model and to determine critical values.The AKI predictive model was established using binary logistic regression. The AUROC of the predictive model was 0.81, with a sensitivity of 69.8%, specificity of 83.4%, and positive likelihood ratio of 4.2.A predictive model for AKI in critically ill patients was established using 5 related risk factors: heart failure, chronic kidney disease, emergency surgery, sepsis, and total bilirubin; however, the predictive ability requires validation.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Anaemia is a common disorder occurring in about 33% of the global population. It is an important cardiovascular risk factor and a key indicator of some chronic complications of Diabetes Mellitus (DM). This study aimed to determine the burden of anaemia and its correlation with some clinical and biochemical parameters among patients with DM attending a tertiary health facility in Zaria, Northwestern Nigeria. SUBJECTS, MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a case-control study in which 168 participants were enrolled (84 DM patients, 84 controls). It was conducted in the Endocrinology and Metabolic clinics of Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital, Zaria. Consenting DM patients were enrolled consecutively and subsequently, sex- and age-matched with non-diabetic controls. Data on age, gender and Haemoglobin (Hb) concentrations were collated for all study participants. Additional data on type of DM, duration of DM once diagnosis, treatment, type of treatment, history of hypertension, chronic kidney disease, peripheral neuropathy, and Fasting Blood Sugar (FBS) were collated for all cases. Data were collated and analyzed using SPSS version 21. Level of significance was set at <0.05. Ethical approval for the study was obtained from the Institutional Health Research Ethics Committee and informed consent was obtained from the all the participants. RESULTS: Females constituted 39/84(46.4%) of each arm of the study. The mean ± SD of age for both cases and controls was 53.7 ± 8.9 years. The mean ± SD duration of DM, treatment for DM and FBS were 8.4 ± 5.7 years, 5.0 ± 3.6 years and 6.1 ± 2.5mmol/L respectively. Cases had significantly lower Hb concentration compared to controls (12.1±2.2g/dl vs. 13.1 ± 1.4g/dl, t= -3.446, p = 0.001). Overall prevalence of anaemia among cases and controls was 36/84(42.9%) vs. 26/84(31.0%) Z = 1.6, p = 0.110. Among cases, haemoglobin concentration had very weak, inverse and non-statistically significant relationships with age, duration of DM diagnosis, duration of therapy and FBS levels. There was a significant relationship between anaemia on one hand and type of DM and treatment on the other. The odds of DM patients with history of CKD or uncontrolled FBS having anaemia were OR= 0.600 (95% CI 0.196, 1.836) and OR=1.755 (95% CI 0.737, 4.181) respectively. CONCLUSION: The burden of anaemia amongst patients with DM is high in Zaria, Northwestern Nigeria, and it is associated with poor glycaemic control. Hence, the need to include haematological assessment as part of routine care of patients with DM.
