Background: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) remains one of the major health problems in India. Renal function steadily deteriorates as age advances and advancing age has been indicted to have adverse implications in the disease progression to end stage renal disease (ESRD). With the present study, clinico-biochemical profiling of chronic kidney disease patients in geriatric age group as well as comparison with non-elderly patients was undertaken.Methods: In this cross-sectional observational study… Expand

CLINICAL AND BIOCHEMICAL SPECTRUM OF CHRONIC KIDNEY DISEASE IN TERTIARY CARE CENTER
TLDR
The lab features which commonly seen in the study were hypocalcemia, hyponatremia , hyperkalemia, anaemia and hypoalbuminemia in significant number of patients, which needs prompt detection and correction to prevent early mortality. Expand
The incidence of end-stage renal disease in India: a population-based study.
TLDR
This study provides the first population-based ESRD incidence data from India and reveals it to be higher than previously estimated, and Diabetic nephropathy is the leading cause of E SRD. Expand
Epidemiology and risk factors of chronic kidney disease in India – results from the SEEK (Screening and Early Evaluation of Kidney Disease) study
TLDR
It should be stressed to all primary care physicians taking care of hypertensive and diabetic patients to screen for early kidney damage, as early intervention may retard the progression of kidney disease. Expand

TLDR
Patients with CKD should be considered a "very high risk" category and aggressive therapeutic intervention initiated to reduce the risk of cardiovascular events, and the main focus of treatment is the level of LDL cholesterol. Expand
Haematological Profile of Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease in Northern Bangladesh
TLDR
CKD has been defined as either a level of glomerular filtration rate (GFR)<60ml/min per 1.73m, which is accompanied in most cases by signs and symptoms of uraemia, or a need for initiation of renal replacement therapy. Expand
Hyperuricemia in Patients with Chronic Renal Failure in the General Hospital of National Reference of N’Djamena (Chad)
TLDR
The implication of hyperuricemia in chronic kidney disease has been proved in several recent studies, however, randomized studies at very long scales have to be carried out to conclude from its real impact on the prevention and treatment of Chronic kidney disease. Expand
Effects of anemia and left ventricular hypertrophy on cardiovascular disease in patients with chronic kidney disease.
TLDR
The combination of anemia and LVH in CKD identifies a high-risk population and was associated with an increased risk for both study outcomes compared with individuals with neither risk factor. Expand
What do we know about chronic kidney disease in India: first report of the Indian CKD registry
TLDR
This report confirms the emergence of diabetic nephropathy as the pre-eminent cause in India and confirms patients with CKD of unknown etiology are younger, poorer and more likely to present with advanced CKD. Expand
The frequency of hyperkalemia and its significance in chronic kidney disease.
TLDR
The risk of hyperkalemia is increased with CKD, and its occurrence increases the odds of mortality within 1 day of the event, underscore the importance of this metabolic disturbance as a threat to patient safety in CKD. Expand
ESRD patients in 2004: global overview of patient numbers, treatment modalities and associated trends.
TLDR
An alternative approach to reporting international ESRD-relevant data is pursued in the Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study (DOPPS), and an extract of the latter is supplied for use and reference by renal care specialists and healthcare administrative bodies. Expand
