Interactions between sodium and calcium regulating systems are poorly characterized but clinically important. Parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels are increased shortly after furosemide treatment by an unknown mechanism, and this effect is blunted by the previous administration of a calcimimetic in animal studies. Here, we explored further the possible(More)
Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) is a frequent cause of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in children. Using blood oxygenation level-dependent magnetic resonance imaging (BOLD-MRI), we measured cortical and medullary oxygenation in children with CKD due to VUR and compared the results to those obtained on healthy controls. The study population comprised 37 children(More)
OBJECTIVE Diabetic nephropathy affects 30% of diabetics, and its development has been linked to poor glycemic control. Animal studies have suggested that hyperglycemia induces transient renal hypoxia and thus kidney damage, yet this has not been previously tested in humans. In this interventional study we assessed whether hyperglycemia alters renal tissue(More)
