OBJECTIVE To evaluate the performance of the Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) equation to estimate glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in type 2 diabetic patients with GFR >60 mL/min/1.73 m(2). RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS This was a cross-sectional study including 105 type 2 diabetic patients. GFR was measured by (51)Cr-EDTA method(More)
Aspirin is recommended as cardiovascular disease prevention in patients with diabetes mellitus. Due to the increased risk of bleeding and because of the hypothesis that there could be a worsening of microvascular complications related to aspirin, there has been observed an important underutilization of the drug. However, it is now known that aspirin is not(More)
AIMS To analyse the performances of Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) and of Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) study equations to estimate glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus with GFRs >60 ml/min and in healthy volunteers. METHODS This cross-sectional study included 111(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this paper was to compare the agreement between creatinine measured by Jaffe and enzymatic methods and their putative influence on eGFR as calculated by the CKD-EPI (Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration) equation in healthy and diabetic individuals. DESIGN AND METHODS Cross-sectional study conducted in 123 adult southern(More)
Serum creatinine measurement is a mainstay in the routine laboratory evaluation of renal function, despite of having several disadvantages. Cystatin C, on the other hand, suffers less influence of gender and muscle mass and has been proposed as a more sensitive marker for glomerular filtration rate. However, serum endogenous markers should not be used alone(More)
Resistance to thyroid hormone (RTH) is a rare autosomal dominant inherited disorder characterized by end-organ reduced sensitivity to thyroid hormone. This syndrome is caused by mutations of the thyroid hormone receptor (TR) β gene, and its clinical presentation is quite variable. Goiter is reported to be the most common finding. A close association of TRβ(More)
BACKGROUND The Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) equation seems to correct the overdiagnosis of chronic kidney disease (CKD) provided by Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) equation. However, this point has not been tested in some ethnic groups. This study investigated the performance of MDRD and CKD-EPI equations in South(More)
Remarkable clinical trials, like the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) and United Kingdom Prospective Diabetes Study (UKPDS), have established that HbA1c is the cornerstone to predict the development of chronic vascular complications in diabetic subjects [1,2]. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommends HbA1c measurements at least(More)
The concomitant use of angiotensinconverting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) and aspirin is recommended for any diabetic patient with microalbuminuria or macroalbuminuria because these drugs result in renal and cardiovascular benefits (1,2). However, a putative pharmacological interaction between these drugs is plausible, through their opposite effects on(More)
