Explore the latest in chronic kidney disease, including recent guidelines and advances in staging and management of the disorder.
This cohort study evaluates the association of adherence and treatment intensity with cardiovascular outcomes in patients with documented cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes without cardiovascular disease or chronic kidney disease, and chronic kidney disease without cardiovascular disease.
This before-after study examines changes in 1-year mortality among nonelderly patients initiating dialysis in states that did vs did not participate in Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act in 2014.
This study uses data from the Alberta Kidney Disease Network population database to evaluate the association of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor or angiotensin receptor blocker use with posthospitalization outcomes in patients with acute kidney injury.
This Viewpoint highlights the challenges faced by patients with end-stage renal disease who are homeless, recommends measures to determine the prevalence and outcomes of homelessness among Medicare beneficiaries with end-stage renal disease, and proposes approaches to improve outcomes through supportive housing.
This analysis of Global Burden of Disease 2016 study data and methodologies describes the change in burden of chronic kidney disease at the US state level from 2002 to 2016.
This cohort study evaluated associations of increased creatinine levels, hyperkalemia, and continuation of therapy with the risk of emergency department visits, hospitalizations, and mortality within 1 year after initiation of renin angiotensin aldosterone system inhibitor (RAASI) therapy in patients with chronic kidney disease.
This cohort study uses drug benefit claims data in Ontario, Canada, to estimate the frequency of and variation in prescription nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) use among high-risk patients with musculoskeletal disorders and hypertension, heart failure, or chronic kidney disease (CKD) and identifies characteristics associated with prescription NSAID use and its potential association with short-term, safety-related outcomes.
This cohort study uses data from the UK Health Improvement Network to examine the association of allopurinol use in patients with gout with the risk of developing chronic kidney disease stage 3 or higher.
This cluster randomized clinical trial compares clinical decision support with vs without practice facilitation to improve treatment of chronic kidney disease in primary care as measured by annualized loss of estimated glomerular filtration rate.
This cohort study compares whether the continuation vs discontinuation of statins from advanced chronic kidney disease into the dialysis therapy period is associated with improved all-cause mortality and cardiovascular mortality in US veterans.
This study uses more than 3 million records from the US national end-stage renal disease registry between 2000 and 2014 to assess the rates of lower extremity amputation among patients with end-stage renal disease who receive dialysis and whether those rates are associated with patient characteristics and comorbidities.
This large cohort study quantifies the association between metformin use and hospitalization with acidosis across the range of estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), accounting for change in eGFR stage over time.
This study characterizes the exclusion of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) in randomized clinical trials of drug treatment for bladder, breast, colorectal, lung, and prostate cancer.
This randomized clinical trial compares the effects of coaching patients with chronic kidney disease to increase vs maintain or reduce their free water intake on change in their estimated glomerular filitration rate at 12 months.
This cohort study compares use of dialysis and survival in patients with end-stage renal disease who receive care through Veterans Affairs vs Medicare.
