A multiple logistic regression model showed CO2CP (OR = 1.17, 95% CI: 1.09-1.26), levels of uric acid (OR = 1.01, 95% CI: 1.00-1.01) and serum sodium (Na) (OR = 0.90, 95% CI: 0.82-0.99) were associated with pediatric urolithiasis. The risk of urolithiasis was increased with the F versus f allele overall (OR = 1.42; 95% CI: 1.01-2.00) and for males (OR = 1.52, 95% CI: 1.02-2.27). However, metabolic (...) levels did not differ by FokⅠ genotypes.

253. Screening for Chronic Kidney Disease in Adult Males in Vojvodina: A Cross-sectional Study (PubMed)

, based on estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and urine albumin/creatinine ratio (ACR), and exploring the determinants and awareness of CKD.This cross-sectional study included 3060 male examinees from the general population, over 18 years of age, whose eGFR and ACR were calculated, first morning urine specimen examined, arterial blood pressure measured and body mass index calculated. Standard biochemistry methods determined creatinine, urea, uric acid and glucose serum concentrations as well (...) as albumin and creatinine urine levels.Prevalence of CKD in the adult male population is 7.9%, highest in men over 65 years of age (46.7%), while in the other age groups it is 3.6-12.6%. The largest number of examinees with a positive CKD marker suffer from arterial hypertension (HTA) and diabetes mellitus (DM). Only 1.3% of examinees with eGFR<60 ml/min/1.73 m2 and/or ACR≥ 3 mg/mmol had been aware of positive CKD biomarkers.Obtained results show the prevalence of CKD in adult males is 7.9%, HTA and DM

of muscle cells leading to the release of numerous intracellular molecules, including potassium, calcium, phosphate, uric acid, and creatinine kinase. There are a number of potential etiologies, including exertion, extreme temperature changes, ischemia, infections, immobility, drugs, toxins, endocrine causes, autoimmune reactions, trauma, or genetic conditions. Findings can include myalgias, muscle weakness, or dark-colored urine, but more often include non-specific symptoms. The diagnosis is often (...) determined with an elevated creatinine kinase greater than five times the upper-limit of normal. Severe disease may result in renal failure, electrolyte derangements, liver disease, compartment syndrome, and disseminated intravascular coagulation. Treatment includes addressing the underlying etiology, as well as aggressive intravenous hydration with a goal urine output of 300 mL/h. Bicarbonate, mannitol, and loop diuretics do not possess strong evidence for improved outcomes. Renal replacement therapy

, the effect of ChondroT was evaluated on xanthine oxidase (XOD) activity in vitro. The anti-hyperuricemic effect of ChondroT was also studied in potassium oxonate (PO)-induced hyperuricemic model mice. Uric acid (UA) and XOD were evaluated in the serum, urine, and liver of the mice. In addition, we measured serum creatinine (Cr) and blood urea nitrogen (BUN) levels as well as mRNA expression of the mouse urate transporter 1 (mURAT1) to evaluate kidney function and urate excretion in hyperuricemic

pressure as a result of kidney disease could have caused a stroke, but there was no post-mortem evidence of that. A suggestion that he died of mercury poisoning is based on dubious supposition and weak evidence. My own interpretation is shown in the figure below. It is clear that Charles had repeated episodes of gout. The ulcer on his foot may have been due to that. Chronic gout, untreated, would almost certainly have led to deposits of uric acid in the kidneys and chronic renal impairment (...) bark and Goa stone were used to counteract fever, and the former might have been effective, since it contains quinine. However, most of these measures would have been ineffective or even dangerous, depending on the doses used and the frequency with which they were administered. In contrast, much could have been done today to treat Charles and to have prolonged his life considerably, and with good quality. His chronic gout would have been alleviated by medicines that increase uric acid excretion
