  • uremic
  • Uremia (uremic syndrome) is a serious complication of chronic kidney disease and acute kidney injury (which used to be known as acute renal failure). (uwhealth.org)
  • To define more clearly the factors involved in carbohydrate metabolism in uremia, we studied blood glucose, plasma insulin, and plasma growth hormone responses after the intravenous injections of 25 g of glucose in 17 uremic patients and compared the results with those in 14 normal subjects and 16 patients with maturity-onset diabetes mellitus.

  • uric acid
  • Serum uric acid levels were determined by specific and non-specific methods in uraemia in order to investigate the correlation between non-specific chromogen and serum urea level. (bmj.com)
  • Nephrology
  • Chronic uremia induces permeability changes, increased nitric oxide synthase expression, and structural modifications in the peritoneum," Journal of the American Society of Nephrology , vol. 12, no. 10, pp. 2146-2157, 2001. (hindawi.com)
  • diseased kidney
  • There is substantial clinical and experimental evidence that this abnormality in intestinal absorption of calcium is secondary to uremia per se and to reduced ability of the diseased kidney to synthesize 1,25 (OH) 2 vitamin D 3 (2-5). (springer.com)
  • histological
  • Based on histological analyses of aortic root sections, uremia increased the medial area, while there was no difference in the content of elastic fibers or collagen in the aortic media. (lu.se)
  • Gastroduodenal mucosa in uraemia: endoscopic and histological correlation and prevalence of helicobacter-like organisms. (bmj.com)
  • medial
  • Conclusions Uremia modulates the phenotype of aortic SMCs as determined by mRNA/miRNA expression, an increased medial area, and decreased aortic contractility. (lu.se)
  • occur
  • Spontaneous bleeding can occur with severe uremia and may include gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding, spontaneous subdural hematomas, increased bleeding from any underlying disorder, or bleeding associated with trauma. (medscape.com)
  • nephrectomy
  • Germfree rats were used in 3 experiments to study the effects of the microbial flora on survival time after acute uremia produced by a one-stage bilateral nephrectomy. (rupress.org)
  • Germfree rats, limited-flora rats, and conventionalized rats (all maintained continuously in isolators) were subjected to nephrectomy or to sham nephrectomy, deprived of food and water until they died, respectively, of uremia or of starvation, and their survival times compared. (rupress.org)
  • Methods Moderate uremia was induced by 5/6 nephrectomy in apolipoprotein E knockout (ApoE -/- ) and wildtype C57Bl/6 mice. (lu.se)
  • inflammation
  • A high interindividual variability in IL-10 production leads to distinct patient groups who can or cannot effectively limit the uremia- and dialysis-induced inflammation. (ebscohost.com)
  • investigate
  • The aim of this study was to investigate whether uremia per se modulates the phenotype of aortic SMCs in vivo. (lu.se)
  • Results
  • Results Induction of moderate uremia in ApoE -/- mice increased atherosclerosis in the aortic arch en face 1.6 fold (p = 0.04) and induced. (lu.se)
