  1. 1. The role of fibroblast growth factor-23 in chronic kidney disease-mineral and bone disorder

    Abstract : Fibroblast growth factor-23 (FGF23) was initially identified as the causative factor of autosomal dominant hypophosphatemic rickets. Further studies confirmed that FGF23 is predominantly expressed in the osteocytes and osteoblasts of bone and that circulating FGF23 acts on the kidney to inhibit renal phosphate reabsorption and 1,25(OH)2D3 hydroxylation.

  2. 2. Effects of Hemoglobin Normalization with Epoetin in Chronic Kidney Disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Hans Furuland; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Internal medicine; Anemia; blood viscosity; cardiac output; chronic kidney disease; renal dialysis; dialysis adequacy; erythopoietin; heart rate variability; hemoglobin; hemorheology; hypertension; kidney transplantation; Kt V; left ventricular hypertrophy; Quality of Life; Invärtesmedicin; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : Anemia is common in patients with chronic kidney disease (CDK), contributes to reduced Quality of Life (QoL) and is associated with cardiovascular disease, morbidity and mortality. Epoetin raises hemoglobin (Hb) and increases QoL and physical exercise capacity. READ MORE

  3. 3. A life-course approach to chronic kidney disease risks and consequences

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro University

    Author : Per-Ola Sundin; Örebro universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Chronic kidney disease; pneumonia; grip strength; creatinine; cystatin C; adolescence; life-course epidemiology; risk factor; mortality;

    Abstract : Successful primary prevention of chronic kidney disease (CKD) relies on understanding the pathways leading to established disease, including how they extend over the life-course. Projects in this thesis examine risk factors for CKD and consequences of impaired kidney function from a life-course perspective using routinely collected health-data in Swedish registers and research cohort data from the United Kingdom.

  4. 4. Evaluation of Myocardial Function in Chronic Kidney Disease A Colour Tissue Velocity Imaging Study

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Shirley Hayashi; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiac; Kidney; Tissue; Velocity; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : In patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), overhydration, uremic toxins and left ventricular (LV) dyssynchrony are factors that may lead to LV dysfunction and conduction abnormalities and thus contribute to the high cardiac mortality. Colour tissue velocity imaging (TVI) allows a detailed quantitative analysis of cardiac function in CKD patients, opening new possibilities to evaluate longitudinal myocardial motion, rapid isovolumetric events, LV filling pressure and LV synchronicity.
