Recipients of in-hospital nighttime dialysis experienced a 14.2 gram reduction in left ventricle thickening.
Even healthy adults show evidence of abnormal bone metabolism.
Researchers find link in the non-dialysis population.
Large South Korean study demonstrates the association in individuals with normal kidney function.
Large European study identifies ranges of phosphorus, calcium, and parathyroid hormone levels with the lowest death risk.
African-American patients, however, had significantly higher intact parathyroid hormone levels, possibly due to lower 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels.
Every 1 mg/dL increase in serum phosphorus level was linked with 36% greater odds of kidney failure among non-dialysis CKD patients.
High phosphate levels are associated with 3.3-fold increased odds of 28-day in-hospital mortality.
In a study, 45% of hemodialysis patients internationally reported skipping phosphate binder pills at least once in the prior month.
Patients with hyperphosphatemia lowered their phosphorus levels with a dietitian's guidance or cash incentive.
Boiling sliced meat in a pressure cooker filled with soft water may be a promising way for dialysis patients to reduce phosphorus intake.
Study implicates dairy products, cereals, and grains containing inorganic phosphate additives.
Among the phosphate-containing medicinal products prescribed to chronic kidney disease patients, 76% may contain absorbable phosphate.
Baseline eGFR, higher phosphorus, proteinuria, and male gender, also are associated with an elevated risk of end-stage renal disease in patients with chronic kidney disease.
Proteinuria, hyperphosphatemia, anemia linked more rapid annual decline in eGFR.
Cutting back on dietary phosphorus in addition to taking phosphate binders achieved greater decreases in serum phosphate in PD patients.
A study found that 78% of popular drinks, from flavored waters to lemonades to iced teas, contain far more phosphorus than listed in nutritional databases.
Lowest relative risk of death observed in patients with serum phosphorus and calcium levels of 4.4 mg/dL and 8.8 mg/dL, respectively.
Patients who use the supplements should have their kidney function and electrolytes monitored, researchers say.
In a study, the incidence of hyperphosphatemia, ionized hypocalcemia, and ionized hypercalcemia was 44%, 22%, and 23%, respectively.
It had a phosphorus-lowering effect similar to that of sevelamer, but had a lower pill burden.
One-third of patients who missed clinical targets for phosphorus, calcium and/or parathormone remained untreated.
Strategies to overcome motivational barriers may improve mineral bone health.
These findings underscore the need to better understand whether earlier phosphorus management influences morbidity and mortality in advanced CKD, according to researchers.
Individuals who perceived the benefits of a low-phosphorus diet and demonstrated self-efficacy were more likely to make strides against hyperphosphatemia.
Reducing dietary phosphorus is challenging, so researchers have developed a food pyramid for CKD and dialysis patients.
The findings generally support KDOQI guidelines for dialysis patients, which recommend maintaining serum phosphorus levels between 3.5 and 5.5 mg/dL.
When the kidneys are not working well, potassium levels in the blood can rise.
The medication may represent a new treatment option for dialysis patients, researchers concluded.
Investigators found that dialysis patients with serum calcium levels of 10.2 mg/dL or greater had increased risks of premature death.
