Article
Full-text available
Background Systemic inflammation is related to chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. Elevated peripheral leukocyte count may be a herald of increased systemic inflammation and subclinical disease. Inflammation plays an important role in renal progression. The pattern of total and differential leukocyte count in CKD is not well understood. Besides,...
Article
Background Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a global burden in the world. Low protein diet (LPD) recommendation is suggested in CKD patients to avoid or defer dialysis initiation and slow down CKD progression. However, nutritional imbalance and protein energy wasting represent key worries. The amino acid-based metabolic profile may provide a sensiti...

Background Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of mortality in hemodialysis patients and is associated with chronic inflammation. Elevation of uremic toxins, particular protein-bound uremic toxins, is a possible cause of hyper-inflammation in hemodialysis patients. But the association between uremic toxins and inflammatory markers in hemodi...

The prevalence of coronary vasospasm and also the factors associated with coronary vasospasm in CKD is still unclear. In this cross-sectional study of 859 consecutive CKD patients with angina pectoris received coronary catheterization, we evaluated the factors associated with coronary vasospasm. Patients with vasospasm were older and had higher per...

Chronic musculoskeletal (MS) pain is common in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) undergoing haemodialysis. However, epidemiological data for chronic MS pain and factors associated with chronic MS pain in patients with early- or late-stage CKD who are not undergoing dialysis are limited. A cross-sectional study to evaluate the prevalence of...
Article
Objective: Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) who are undergoing maintenance hemodialysis have a higher prevalence of depression than the general population. The underlying cause of this association is unknown, but may be related to accumulation of uremic toxins. Little is known about the association of accumulation of uremic toxins and de...
Article

Objective: The incidence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) is on the rise. CKD patients are at high risk of cardiovascular (CVD) and all-cause mortality. CKD patients have several endocrine disorders, including low levels of dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEA-S). In the general population, low levels of DHEA-S are associated with high CVD and all-...

Higher cardiovascular mortality has been noted in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). CKD patients are also known to have impaired energy expenditure but the role of energy expenditure in cardiovascular disease is not yet known. Furthermore, the association between cold dialysis (CD) and clinical outcomes in hemodialysis patients is unclear...
Article
It has been suggested that atopic dermatitis (AD) is associated with impaired delta-6 desaturase activity and the subsequent altered composition of n-6 essential fatty acids (EFAs). To investigate whether n-6 EFA deficiency accounts for AD by affecting transepidermal water loss or the immune response. Serum levels of n-6 EFAs were measured using ga...
