Few studies have analysed the impact of chronic respiratory disease (CRD) on outcomes in dialysis. We therefore sought to describe patients with CRD and end-stage renal disease and their outcomes after dialysis start, compared with patients without CRD, focusing especially on causes of death, access to renal transplantation and causes of hospital admissions.

Sarcopenia, the age-related loss of muscle mass and function, frequently accompanies chronic kidney disease. The aim of this study was to clarify the prevalence and the risk factors for sarcopenia amo...
For patients with chronic lower respiratory disease, hypobaric hypoxia at a high altitude is considered a risk factor for mortality. However, the effects of residing at moderately high altitudes remai...
Estimates suggest that 20-30% of the deaths of patients with chronic kidney disease with indication to undergo dialysis occur after refusal to continue dialysis, discontinuation of dialysis or inabili...
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is an independent risk factor associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD) and incidence of chronic kidney disease (CKD). NAFLD is threatening to become a maj...
Elevated fibroblast growth factor-23 (FGF23) levels increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). We aimed to compare the effects of different dietary int...
Protein energy wasting is an independent factor associated with morbi-mortality in chronic kidney disease. Wasting is particularly common in chronic diseases of organs such as kidney disea...
Homocysteine recently gained access to the category of risk factor for the development of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease in the general population. Chronic renal failure patients, ...
To evaluate the relationships between bone mineral markers levels at dialysis start and vascular calcification progression during a 2 year follow up
The first aim of this study is to determine how often unrecognized myocardial infarction occur in patients using a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique (known as delayed enhancement ...
All patients with chronic kidney disease (stages 3, 4 and 5) and chronic dialysis patients with HCV infection attending nephrology and Hepatology OPD or getting outpatient dialysis at the ...
Therapy for the insufficient cleansing of the BLOOD by the kidneys based on dialysis and including hemodialysis, PERITONEAL DIALYSIS, and HEMODIAFILTRATION.
Statistical models which describe the relationship between a qualitative dependent variable (that is, one which can take only certain discrete values, such as the presence or absence of a disease) and an independent variable. A common application is in epidemiology for estimating an individual's risk (probability of a disease) as a function of a given risk factor.
Telephone surveys are conducted to monitor prevalence of the major behavioral risks among adults associated with premature MORBIDITY and MORTALITY. The data collected is in regard to actual behaviors, rather than on attitudes or knowledge. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) established the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) in 1984.
A subcategory of CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE. The disease is characterized by hypersecretion of mucus accompanied by a chronic (more than 3 months in 2 consecutive years) productive cough. Infectious agents are a major cause of chronic bronchitis.
An acquired disease of unknown etiology, chronic course, and tendency to recur. It is characterized by inflammation and degeneration of cartilage and can result in deformities such as floppy ear and saddle nose. Loss of cartilage in the respiratory tract can lead to respiratory obstruction.
Asthma COPD Cystic Fibrosis Pneumonia Pulmonary Medicine Respiratory Respiratory tract infections (RTIs) are any infection of the sinuses, throat, airways or lungs. They're usually caused by viruses, but they can also ...
In medicine, dialysis is a process for removing waste and excess water from the blood, and is primarily used to provide an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with renal failure. Dialysis may be used for those with an acute disturba...
