Early identification of individuals at elevated risk of developing chronic kidney disease (CKD) could improve clinical care through enhanced surveillance and better management of underlying health conditions.

Diabetic nephropathy is a leading cause of chronic kidney disease and dialysis. We know that a good diabetes control slows the progression of kidney disease, but the risk of hypoglycemia is greater in...
Diabetes mellitus is a risk factor for the development and progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, the association of prediabetes with adverse kidney outcomes is uncertain.
The assessment of sodium intake is difficult due to low accuracy of dietary records and to the inconvenience of 24-h urine collections. Therefore, equations based on spot urine samples have been propo...
According to the Chronic Kidney Disease Prognosis Consortium (CKD-PC), 1 in 4 patients age ≥ 65 in North America has some form of chronic kidney disease (CKD), while 3 in 100 will progress to kidney...
AKI is associated with increased risk of death, prolonged length of stay and development of de-novo chronic kidney disease. The aim of our study is the development and validation of prediction models ...
The study was based on the clinical trial BCA-01 (NCT01368640) "Generation of prediction equations to analyze body composition of adults based on Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA)" an...
Patients in the earlier stages of Chronic kidney disease (CKD) are at risk both for the development of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) (define by the requirement for dialysis or kidney tran...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate which clinical and laboratory factors are associated with major adverse cardiovascular event (MACE) in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients on dia...
Simplified methods to estimate lean body mass (LBM), an important nutritional measure representing muscle mass and somatic protein, are lacking in non-dialyzed patients with chronic kidney...
Kidney function in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) is tending to decline over a time which is clearly demonstrated in clinical studies. Taking into account that renal impairment is ...
Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level for more than three months. Chronic kidney insufficiency is classified by five stages according to the decline in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE and the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA). The most severe form is the end-stage renal disease (CHRONIC KIDNEY FAILURE). (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002)
The end-stage of CHRONIC RENAL INSUFFICIENCY. It is characterized by the severe irreversible kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and the reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002). These patients generally require HEMODIALYSIS or KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.
Decalcification of bone or abnormal bone development due to chronic KIDNEY DISEASES, in which 1,25-DIHYDROXYVITAMIN D3 synthesis by the kidneys is impaired, leading to reduced negative feedback on PARATHYROID HORMONE. The resulting SECONDARY HYPERPARATHYROIDISM eventually leads to bone disorders.
Analyses for a specific enzyme activity, or of the level of a specific enzyme that is used to assess health and disease risk, for early detection of disease or disease prediction, diagnosis, and change in disease status.
Abnormal enlargement or swelling of a KIDNEY due to dilation of the KIDNEY CALICES and the KIDNEY PELVIS. It is often associated with obstruction of the URETER or chronic kidney diseases that prevents normal drainage of urine into the URINARY BLADDER.
Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
