Analysis of Glycemic Improvement in Hemodialysis Patients Based on Time in Range, Assessed by Flash Glucose Monitoring
November 7, 2021
0
0
Abstract Introduction: This study aimed to investigate the application value of “time in ranges (TIRs)” in dialysis patients with diabetes and summarize the experience of optimizing glycemic control by flash glucose monitoring (FGM) system. In this monocentric 2-week pilot study,  flash glucose monitoring was applied for 14 days in 57 type 2 diabetes mellitus medically […]

Risk prediction of COVID-19 incidence and mortality in a large multi-national hemodialysis cohort: implications for management of the pandemic in outpatient hemodialysis settings
November 7, 2021
0
0
Abstract Experiences from the first wave of the 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic can aid in the development of future preventive strategies. To date, risk prediction models for COVID-19-related incidence and outcomes in hemodialysis (HD) patients are missing. A newrisk prediction model has been invented for COVID-19 incidence and mortality among hemodialysis  patients. There were […]

Accelerometer-measured physical activity and functional behaviours among people on dialysis
November 7, 2021

0
Abstract The feasibility of wrist-worn accelerometers, and the patterns and determinants of physical activity, among people on dialysis are uncertain. People on maintenance dialysis were fitted with a wrist-worn AxivityAX3 accelerometer. Subsets also wore a 14-day electrocardiograph patch (Zio®PatchXT) and wearable cameras. Age-, sex- and season-matched UK Biobank control groups were derived for comparison. There […]

Impact of obesity on the evolution of outcomes in peritoneal dialysis patients
November 7, 2021
0
0
Abstract Some studies reveal that obesity is associated with a decrease in mortality in hemodialysis (HD) patients. However, few studies have addressed the association between body mass index (BMI) and peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. There was a longitudinal, retrospective study to evaluate the impact of obesity on peritoneal dialysis patients, using data from the Catalan […]

Long-Term Outcomes of the Flixene Vascular Graft Used for Haemodialysis
November 7, 2021
0
0
Abstract The Flixene™ vascular graft (Maquet-Atrium Medical, Hudson, NH) has emerged as a new generation synthetic graft, which allows for early needling for hemodialysis. Most studies have shown satisfactory early results. The aim of this study is to report on long-term outcomes of the Flixene graft over eight years in a cohort of patients. From […]

Difficulty in activities of daily living and falls in patients undergoing hemodialysis: A cross-sectional study with nondialysis controls
November 7, 2021
0
0
Abstract Introduction: Impaired activities of daily living (ADL) and falls are important issues in hemodialysis patients. So far, information is limited regarding self-reported difficulty with activities of daily living in hemodialysis patients. Then, we compared the degree of activities of daily living difficulty and the prevalence of fallers between hemodialysis patients and a non dialyzed […]

Patients undergoing assisted peritoneal dialysis show a better technique survival: a competing risk analysis
November 7, 2021
0
0
Abstract The aim of the study was to compare patient mortality and technique survival between patients undergoing assisted peritoneal dialysis (aPD) and self-care peritoneal dialysis (sPD). Patients who underwent peritoneal dialysis (PD) at the dialysis center of Second Affiliated Hospital of Soochow University from January 1st, 2012 to Dec 31th, 2016, were included and followed […]

Abstract The novel coronavirus, called severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), was declared a pandemic in March 2020 by the World Health Organization. Older individuals and patients with comorbid conditions such as hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, lung disease, chronic kidney disease and immunologic diseases are at higher risk of contracting this severe infection. In […]

New-Onset Diabetes after Kidney Transplantation
November 16, 2021
0
0
Abstract New-onset diabetes mellitus after transplantation (NODAT) is a frequent complication in kidney allograft recipients. It may be caused by modifiable and non-modifiable factors. The non-modifiable factors are the same that may lead to the development of type 2 diabetes in the general population, whilst the modifiable factors include perioperative stress, hepatitis C or cytomegalovirus […]

CD28null and Regulatory T Cells Are Substantially Disrupted in Patients with End-Stage Renal Disease Due to Diabetes Mellitus
November 7, 2021
0
0
Abstract End-stage renal disease (ESRD) is associated with alterations in T-cell immunity, including increased CD28null and reduced regulatory T cells (Tregs). However, whether immune disturbances are due to ESRD or primary disease is not yet clear. As diabetes mellitus is the leading cause of ESRD, we evaluated its impact on the immune profile of ESRD […]
