Dyslipidemia, a known risk factor for atherosclerosis, is frequent among both adults and children with chronic kidney disease. Here, we describe the prevalence and pattern of dyslipidemia from a cross-sectional analysis of 391 children aged 1-16 years, enrolled in the multicenter Chronic Kidney Disease in Children (CKiD) study, with a median glomerular filtration rate (GFR), measured by the plasma disappearance of iohexol, of 43 ml/min per 1.73 m2. Multivariate analysis was applied to adjust for age, gender, body mass index (BMI), GFR, and the urinary protein/creatinine ratio. Proteinuria was in the nephrotic range in 44 and the BMI exceeded the 95th percentile in 57 patients of this cohort. Baseline lipid analysis found a high prevalence of hypertriglyceridemia in 126, increased non-HDL-C in 62, and reduced HDL-C in 83. Overall, 177 children had dyslipidemia, of whom 79 had combined dyslipidemia. Lower GFR was associated with higher triglycerides, lower HDL-C, and higher non-HDL-C. Nephrotic-range proteinuria was significantly associated with dyslipidemia and combined dyslipidemia. Compared with children with a GFR>50, children with a GFR<30 had significantly increased odds ratios for any dyslipidemia or for combined dyslipidemia. Hence, among children with moderate chronic kidney disease, dyslipidemia is common and is associated with lower GFR, nephrotic proteinuria, and non-renal factors including age and obesity.

    • "Therefore, the population at risk of CKD had to be determined. CKD is usually identified among the older age groups within a society; past studies have shown that CKD also occurs among younger children (Mak and Bakris 2010; Olowu 2003; Saland et al. 2010). Based on this notion, the total population was regarded as the population at risk for CKD regardless of their sex or age group. "

    ABSTRACT: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a growing problem in Nigeria, presenting challenges to the nation’s health and economy. This study presents an analysis of 442 patients with CKD referred to the renal department at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital, Nigeria between 2006 and 2009. It investigates the spatial distribution of the disease across the study area using the kernel density estimate to evaluate the spatial distribution of CKD cases within the state. It involves the analysis of the distribution of CKD cases in relation to their underlying population to determine the areas of high and low density of diagnosed CKD cases across the state. The result highlighted the spatial distribution of diagnosed CKD and also highlighted the areas of concern regarding the spatial distribution of diagnosed CKD within the state. The findings derived from this study would be helpful in the preliminary assessment needed for policy-making decisions that pertain to the strategic allocation of resources for CKD treatment within the health sector.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper the authors propose a new computational approach to calculating the refractive index of the quantum wells of a quantum well solar cell (QWSC) device. The new approach takes into consideration the presence of an electric field perpendicular to the quantum well layers. The model is based on the Modified Single Effective Oscillator (MSEO) model. This model is dependent upon three specific parametric equations. The relationships between these equations are used to generate the theoretical model. Computational analysis for a hypothetical quantum structure is performed with any discrepancies in the approach discussed.

    ABSTRACT: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is associated with multiple detrimental consequences to the cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems. The effects of CKD are even more significant when they begin in childhood as they affect growth and (neuro-) development as well. The division into stages of CKD serves as a guideline for the physician to better anticipate and treat early and later manifestations of CKD. For that matter, in adults, the National Kidney Foundation's Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative has published clinical practice guidelines, which are based on estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). There are no such explicit guidelines published for the pediatric CKD population, mostly (and thankfully) due to its small number. However, given the excellent guidelines published in the adult literature and ongoing clinical work done by dedicated pediatric nephrologists, similar guidelines for children could be extrapolated and determined. As a matter of fact, the pediatric nephrology community is anxiously anticipating the results of the ongoing Chronic Kidney Disease in Children study, which is the first multicenter, prospective, observational pediatric study of such kind. This article summarizes the adequacy of CKD stages at all ages based not only on opinions of experienced clinicians, but also on evidence provided by cross-sectional data analyses of the Chronic Kidney Disease in Children study.
