• Disease
  • In the United States, African Americans have approximately twice the risk of end-stage renal disease compared to white Americans, despite a similar prevalence in earlier stages of chronic kidney disease. (medicalxpress.com)
  • Microalbuminuria is a powerful predictor of renal and cardiovascular disease outcome and is associated with other, potentially modifiable, risk factors of vascular damage. (ebscohost.com)
  • The article discusses the mechanisms by which proteinuria may induce renal injury and the potential of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) to delay the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in the U.S. It is shown that interventions that reduce proteinuria delay CKD. (ebscohost.com)
  • Proteinuria predicting outcome in renal disease: Nondiabetic nephropathies (REIN). (ebscohost.com)
  • New insights into the pathogenesis and treatment of diabetic renal disease may emerge from recent advances in proteomics using high-throughput mass spectrometry (MS) of urine. (ebscohost.com)
  • Occasionally, infections, injuries and disease hamper the ability of the kidneys to perform this process, resulting in renal insufficiency. (livestrong.com)
  • The insufficiency can result from decreasing arterial blood flow to the kidneys as a consequence of renal artery disease. (livestrong.com)
  • Renal artery stenosis, a narrowing of the arteries caused by plaque formation, leads to renal artery disease. (livestrong.com)
  • Additional contributing factors include a family history of renal disease, high blood pressure and obesity. (livestrong.com)
  • mean: 41±17 ml / min per 1.73 m2) who were free of manifest arterial occlusive disease and diabetes mellitus were included in the Anti-oxidant Therapy In Chronic renal insufficiency (ATIC) study, a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The answers to your questions are a bit complicated You should also consult with a nephrologist to be sure there is no underlying renal disease. (thyroidmanager.org)
  • Specifically proteins from animal sources that are rapidly absorbed into the blood stream and are rapidly metabolized causing the release of high concentration of toxic nitrogenous waste material A high protein diet is a health concern for those suffering from renal disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • A high protein diet can lead to complications for those with renal disease and has been linked to further progression of the disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • This association suggests that a total protein intake that exceeds the recommendations may accelerate renal disease and lead to risk of protein toxicity within a diseased individual. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is well established that these physiological effects are harmful to individuals with renal disease, but research has not found these responses to be detrimental to those who are healthy and demonstrate adequate renal activity. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other features variably reported in JSRD include dysmorphic facial features, polydactyly, retinal dystrophy, chorioretinal colobomas, renal disease (cysts or juvenile nephronophthisis), hepatic fibrosis, and tongue papules or oral frenulae. (wikipedia.org)
  • glomerular
  • Briefly, GFR will be determined by calculating the glomerular clearance (Cl) from plasma concentrations (P) and renal excretions per unit of time (UxV) during infusion at a constant plasma level of the tracer (Cl=UxV/P). The result will be given as mean value of several consecutive clearances. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Moreover, is the now widespread use of estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) in lieu of serum creatinine levels creating even more confusion, especially in those with abnormalities in one but not the other indirect measure of renal function? (diabetesjournals.org)
  • kidneys
  • With the reduction of blood delivered to the kidneys for screening and purifying, excess body fluids and wastes build up, blood pressure rises and renal insufficiency follows. (livestrong.com)
  • In a healthy individual with well-functioning kidneys, there is no need for concern that an increased dietary protein intake will lead to protein toxicity and decreased renal function. (wikipedia.org)
  • Advances
  • books.google.com - Advances in Renal Insufficiency Research and Treatment: 2011 Edition is a ScholarlyPaper™ that delivers timely, authoritative, and intensively focused information about Renal Insufficiency in a compact format. (google.com)
  • The content of Advances in Renal Insufficiency Research and Treatment: 2011 Edition has been produced by the world's leading scientists, engineers, analysts, research institutions, and companies. (google.com)
  • Function
  • Some individuals who develop renal insufficiency exhibit few or mild symptoms or the deficit in kidney function is noted during a yearly physical with no obvious symptoms. (livestrong.com)
  • Currently, evidence suggests that changes in renal function that occur in response to an increased dietary protein intake are part of the normal adaptive system employed by the body to sustain homeostasis. (wikipedia.org)
  • urinary
  • It may be effective in a variety of upper and lower respiratory tract infections, renal and urinary tract infections, gastrointestinal tract infections, skin and wound infections, septicaemias, and other infections caused by sensitive organisms. (wikipedia.org)
  • mild
  • In women with mild or moderate renal insufficiency, or in combination with chronic daily use of other potassium-sparing medications (ACE inhibitors, angiotensin II receptor antagonists, potassium-sparing diuretics, heparin, aldosterone antagonists, or NSAIDs), a potassium level should be checked after two weeks of use to test for hyperkalemia. (wikipedia.org)
  • main
  • The main concern is that a high protein intake may promote further renal damage that can lead to protein toxicity. (wikipedia.org)
  • Treatment
  • Renal insufficiency would increase whole body radiation to some extent, but its effect on treatment of the residual thyroid would not necessarily be in the same direction since retention of stable iodine might tend to decrease fractional RAIU. (thyroidmanager.org)
