Not only do kidney disease patients have higher rates of cardiovascular events, cardiovascular disease events may increase the risk of end-stage renal disease in the general population.
A study of patients with chronic kidney disease found that regular and occasional binge drinkers had double the risk of disease progression compared with non-drinkers.
Increasing levels of fibroblast growth factor 23 in patients with chronic kidney disease are independently associated with an increased risk of requiring maintenance dialysis or a kidney transplant, a study found.
Study shows incidence rate 3 times higher than that seen in general population.
Higher risk for ESKD, death suggests closer monitoring needed, especially in first year after surgery
Absolute rate differences in complications were low between patients with kidney failure and those with normal kidney function.
Creatinine increases exceeding 10% within 2 months of initiating renin angiotensin system inhibitors were consistently associated with greater risks.
However, significant racial disparities exist and persist across all hospital subtypes
Between 1996 and 2013, approximately 21% of seniors, 27% of younger adults, and 16% of children with end-stage renal disease had hospitalizations with psychiatric diagnoses.
Heterogeneity in risk observed according to geographic region
