The causes may be numerous but the main ones are distal symmetric neuropathy and peripheral obliterative arteriopathy, often complicated by infection. In this review, the Authors, after having illustrated(More)
Filtration through membranes with different nominal cut-off was used for isolation of middle molecule fractions from uremic serum. Comparison was made with test substances which in gel filtration did not show a regular relationship between molecular weight and partition coefficient. The XM50 membrane (cut-off 50,000 D) showed the highest permeability to(More)
Hypertonic haemodiafiltration is a simultaneous hypertonic (delta 550, Na 275mEq/L) low volume (7.2 litres) haemofiltration and hypotonic (delta 282) short time (180') haemodialysis. Reduction of the predialysis body pool of MM (-48 per cent) and small molecules (-33 per cent) was obtained. No relationship between vascular stability and MM removal was(More)
We investigated the use, in a short period, of Humalog Mix25 (Mix25) in a twice-daily administration regimen compared to a twice-daily injection therapy with Humulin 30/70 (30/70) in diabetic patients with Italian dietary habits. We studied 33 type 2 diabetic patients aged 59.1±8.1 years, BMI 29.8±2.7 kg/m2, duration of diabetes and insulin therapy of(More)
Urines of 6 normal subjects, collected during three consecutive 12-hour periods, were examined for proteinuria and albuminuria. During the first period, subjects were kept in the upright position, and during the next two periods in the recumbent position. Both position (upright and recumbent) and the urine collection period (day or night) significantly(More)
