Anthropometry-based Body Fat Percentage Predicts High hs-CRP in Chronic Kidney Disease Patients

BACKGROUND: Obesity is an important cardiovascular risk factor and associated with low grade inflammation in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. This study aims to assess the association between body fat with serum high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) level in CKD patients. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was performed in 71 CKD  patients.  Anthropometric  measurements  included body weight, height, body mass index (BMI), body fat percentage (BFP), skinfold thickness (SKF) of triceps and biceps were performed by trained physician. BFP was calculated using Kwok’s Formula and hs-CRP was measured by Particle enhanced Turbidimetry.

Could Complete Blood Count Parameters and Non-fasting Cholesterol Profile Describe Inflammation and Oxidative Stress in Chronic Kidney Disease?

BACKGROUND: Establishment of inexpensive clinical laboratory tests to evaluate inflammation and oxidative stress is urgently needed in the limited resources settings. This study aims to investigate the potential of complete blood count (CBC) parameters and non-fasting cholesterol profile parameters to describe inflammation and oxidative stress in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. METHODS: Measurement of CBC, non-fasting cholesterol profile, high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) and malondialdehyde (MDA) were performed in 71 CKD patients grouped into hemodialysis (HD) and non-hemodialysis (non-HD). Correlation analysis were performed to assess the potential of CBC and cholesterol profile to describe the level of hs-CRP and MDA.

The Effect of a Low Protein Diet on the Expression of IL-6, TNF-α and TGF-β in the Kidney Tissue of Mice Model

ABSTRACT Introduction: High prevalence of malnutrition has impact that often causes problems in body organs. Various reports suggest an association between malnutrition and chronic kidney failure. However, the effect of malnutrition on the immunological status of the kidney has not been identified. Objective: to identify the effect malnutrition on the immunological status of the kidney.

Statin Pada Penyakit Ginjal Kronik

PENDAHULUAN Penyakit Ginjal Kronik (PGK), yang ditandai dengan kelainan fungsi ginjal atau albuminuria selama setidaknya 3 bulan, berhubungan dengan peningkatan risiko penyakit kardiovaskular (PKV). PGK seringkali merupakan komplikasi dari hipertensi dan diabetes, dimana keduanya merupakan faktor risiko PKV.

Asidosis Metabolik pada Penyakit Ginjal Kronis

Rumah Ginjal - Abstrak Asidosis metabolik bisa merupakan komplikasi umum yang terkait dengan hilangnya fungsi ginjal secara progresif. Bentuknya bisa berupa asidosis metabolik dengan nonanion gap atau asidosis metabolik dengan anion gap tinggi atau juga campuran. Berkurangnya kemampuan ginjal untuk mempertahankan homeostasis asam-basa menghasilkan akumulasi asam, menyebabkan berbagai komplikasi seperti penurunan status gizi seperti penyusutan otot-hipoalbuminemia, inflamasi, penyakit tulang uremik dan kaitannya dengan peningkatan mortalitas.
