Latest Hyperphosphatemia News
In a 2-phased trial, hyperphosphatemia and is sequelae developed in a smaller proportion of patients taking activated charcoal compared with placebo recipients.
In a new study, patients with serum phosphate levels above 1.78 mmol/L at the start of peritoneal dialysis had a nearly 2-fold increased risk for death.
Study supports the hypothesis that altered tubular phosphate handling drives the increase in serum phosphate during SGLT2 inhibition.
In 2 studies, roughly a third of hemodialysis patients achieved within-range serum phosphate levels after converting to sucroferric oxyhydroxide from another phosphate binder.
In a small study of hemodialysis patients, substituting egg white for meat and fish in 3 meals per week resulted in a significant decrease in serum phosphate.
In a small study of patients on maintenance hemodialysis, phosphate binder use did not affect appetite, food intake, or malnutrition-inflammation score.
In a Japanese study, patients with the lowest serum phosphate levels at dialysis initiation had the greatest death risk.
Trial results do not support use of vitamin D receptor activators to prevent cardiovascular events in patients with end-stage renal disease and low intact parathyroid hormone levels.
Analyses demonstrated that an ABI of 1.79 correlated with radiographic evidence of calcified vessels.
In a study, patiromer lowered serum phosphate in patients with hyperkalemia and hyperphosphatemia.
In a study, 42.4% of patients with serum phosphorus of 5.6 to 7 mg/dL lowered their levels to less than 5.5 mg/dL over 2 years.
Patients who received hemodialysis 6 times per week instead of 3 showed improvements in biomarkers of mineral metabolism and left ventricular remodeling.
A new study found that 24-hour urine phosphorus is inversely related to whole-body retention, but is not related to net intestinal absorption.
In a controlled study, a high-phosphate diet increased systolic and diastolic blood pressure and pulse rate in people with normal renal function.
Highest vs lowest quartile of serum phosphorus is independently associated with a nearly 3-fold increased risk of diabetic nephropathy progression.
