Study of renal transplant patients also shows that proton pump inhibitors are associated with increased arterial stiffness.
Recipients of diabetic donor kidneys—especially diabetic recipients—are at increased risk of graft loss and death.
Recipients of AKI kidneys have patient and graft survival rates similar to those of recipients of non-AKI kidneys.
Kidney recipients who lost the most weight prior to transplantation had a 25% decreased risk versus those with the most weight gain.
Lower odds of initiating hemodialysis with artervenous fistula for black and Hispanic versus white patients.
Recipients aged 65 years and older who receive kidneys from donors in the same age group have a higher risk of death and delayed graft function.
New findings show that even patients in their 80s can benefit.
Each 1 kg/m2 increment in BMI difference between recipients and deceased donors is associated with a 6% increased risk of graft loss.
Although physical fitness is widely known to prevent cardiovascular disease, its impact on prostate cancer is less clear.
A new report combines data from 20 studies to provide definitive information.
Bicycles were not designed with male genitalia in mind, and they account for more than 4,000 genitourinary injuries each year.
These findings underscore the need to better understand whether earlier phosphorus management influences morbidity and mortality in advanced CKD, according to researchers.
Patients on maintenance hemodialysis have worse physical function than other elderly patients, study says.
CABG patients with type 1 diabetes had twice the mortality risk, while type 2 patients had a smaller but significant increased risk.
Type 2 diabetes and its associated comorbidities often require polypharmacotherapy, which may result in poor adherence to treatment.
