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.
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
Compared with other causes of end-stage renal disease, membranous nephropathy is associated with superior survival on dialysis and following kidney transplantation, investigators reported.
