A high percentage of patients with chronic kidney disease have hypovitaminosis D, which is a driver of secondary hyperparathyroidism and an important factor in chronic kidney disease-mineral and bone disorder. Vitamin D deficiency (serum total 25-OH vitamin D levels < 30 ng/mL) occurs early in the course of chronic kidney disease and treatment guidelines recommend early intervention to restore 25-OH vitamin D levels as a first step to prevent/delay the onset/progression of secondary hyperparathy...

Background null Acute kidney injury is common in patients with COVID-19, however mechanisms of kidney injury remain unclear. Since cytokine storm is likely a cause of AKI and glomerular disease, we investigated the two major transcription factors, STAT3 and NF-kB, which are known to be activated by cytokines. null Methods null This is an observational study of the postmortem kidneys of 50 patients who died with COVID-19 in the Mount Sinai Hospital during the first pandemic surge. All samples wer...

BACKGROUND Early life factors influence the number of nephrons a person starts life with and a consequence of that is believed to be premature kidney ageing. Thus, we aimed to identify early life factors associated with cystatin C and creatinine-based estimated glomerular filtration (eGFR) rate equations and urine -albumin-to-creatinine ratio after a follow-up of 46-67 years. METHODS The study included 593 Swedish subjects without diabetes mellitus from the Malmo Diet Cancer Cohort. Perinatal da...

Backgrounds null Neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), a surrogate marker of systemic response to physiological stress, is used for prognosis prediction in many diseases. However, the usefulness of this marker for predicting acute kidney injury (AKI) progression is unclear. null Methods null This retrospective study was based on the Chang Gung Research Database. Patients admitted to the intensive care unit with a diagnosis of stage 1 or 2 AKI were identified. The primary outcome was a composite ...

The objective of this study was to characterize hypernatremia patients at hospital admission into clusters using an unsupervised machine learning approach and to evaluate the mortality risk among these distinct clusters. We performed consensus cluster analysis based on demographic information, principal diagnoses, comorbidities, and laboratory data among 922 hospitalized adult patients with admission serum sodium of > 145 mEq/L. We calculated the standardized difference of each variable to ident...

Background null Acute kidney injury (AKI) has serious short- and long-term consequences. The objective of the present study of a cohort of hospitalized patients with AKI was to (i) evaluate the proportion of patients with hospital-acquired (HA) AKI and community-acquired (CA) AKI, the characteristics of these patients and the AKIs, and the short-term outcomes, and (ii) determine the performance of several ICD-10 codes for identifying AKI (both CA and HA) and drug-induced AKI. null Methods null A...

Background and aims null Skeletal muscle (SM) area, as measured by abdominal CT at the level of the third lumbar vertebra (L3), has been proposed as a proxy of whole body muscle mass. However, population-specific reference values are lacking. In the present study we aimed at: (1) detecting low SM area on abdominal CT images in patients on hemodialysis by applying cut-offs derived from a group of healthy subjects, and (2) estimating the independent risk of all-cause mortality associated with low ...
