  • Hypothesis: Weight loss attained through either lifestyle modification or surgical intervention will result in amelioration of endothelial dysfunction, inflammation, insulin resistance and an increase in High Molecular Weight (HMW) adiponectin levels that then mediate the improvement in urinary protein excretion and renal function among obese CKD patients.

  • The greater the specific refractive increment d n /d c (difference in refractive indices of solution and solvent per unit concentration), the greater the level of solution scattering and the lower the molecular weight that shall be determined with a given precision. (astm.org)

  • In the proposed pilot study, the investigators will analyze if kidney function stabilizes after weight loss interventions in obese kidney disease patients and the mechanisms that might mediate this beneficial effect. (clinicaltrials.gov)
