Denosumab is a human monoclonal antibody representing a novel therapy of osteoporosis. Contrary to always other antiosteoporotic drugs, it is not contraindicated in advanced chronic kidney disease, as its pharmacokinetic does not differ from patients with normal kidney function. However, published case reports in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients(More)
The number of patients with chronic renal failure is on the rise; these patients have a 10 to 20 times higher risk of development and progression of cardiovascular diseases. Higher cardiovascular risk in such patients cannot be satisfactorily explained by traditional risk factors defined in the Framingham study. On the contrary, a concept of reverse(More)
Renal bone disease is one of the most serious complications of chronic renal failure. Secondary hyperparathyreosis is decisive for its pathogenesis. Current prevention and treatment emphasises pathogenetic and clinical interrelationships between bone tissue involvement and cardiovascular complications (CKD-MBD, bone and venous involvement associated with(More)
We present a case of severe calciphylaxis in both thighs and calves in a patient with end-stage renal disease and advanced secondary hyperparathyroidism with successful outcome after modified therapeutic approach. The cause of calciphylaxis is multifactorial. In our case, not only severe hyperparathyroidism and mediocalcinosis, but also medication(More)
Malnutrition is a major problem in chronically ill patients. The combination of diabetes and renal insufficiency increases the risk of malnutrition, also due to dietary interventions associated with the two diseases. Resulting malnutrition intensifies inflammatory activity and further compromises nutrition intake. This results in a vicious circle which(More)
Care for diabetic patients with renal impairment and vascular damage is a typical example of care requiring inter-professional approach. Vascular damage in patients with diabetes may lead to renal disease (ischemic nephropathy, high incidence but frequently unrecognised in diabetic patients). Renal ischemia resulting from hypoperfusion due to vascular(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiovascular mortality in hemodialysis (HD) patients remains high despite improvements in HD technique such as dialysis adequacy, dialysis fluid purity, and membrane biocompatibility. Optimal fluid balance to maintain optimal hemodynamic stability during hemodialysis (HD) procedure is essential. At the present time, hemodynamic stability is(More)
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), and chronic renal failure in particular, is associated with vitamin D deficiency and with a disorder of all metabolic processes that are associated with vitamin D. Calcidiol levels are often low. At present, efforts are made to test and to pharmacologically modulate its levels and thus to contribute to greater availability of(More)
Approximately 40% of patients on dialysis have diabetes mellitus (DM). The basic characteristic of those patients are numerous associated organ complications, especially heart and artery diseases. These and other associated complications in dialysed diabetic patients have a modified pathogenetic and clinical picture and contribute to their poorer prognosis.(More)
