The effect of D-chiro-inositol on renal protection in diabetic mice.
Aging Fan C, Zhang D et. al.

Apr 20th, 2022 - D-Chiro-inositol (DCI) exerts a hypoglycaemic effect, participates in lipid metabolism and reduces kidney damage. In this study, we preliminarily explored the protective effect of DCI on renal injury in diabetic mice. Male db/db mice were used in ...

Cinnamaldehyde attenuates kidney senescence and injury through PI3K/Akt pathway-mediate...
Renal Failure; Xiao Q

Apr 2nd, 2022 - To prove the internal connection, we deciphered the effect of cinnamaldehyde on kidney senescence through establishing animal and cell models. In vivo, a rat senescence model was constructed using D-galactose (D-gal), and the modeled rats were fur...

Celecoxib has Preventive and Therapeutic Benefits against Nephrotoxicity Caused by Gent...
Drug Research; Abd-Eldayem AM, Dahpy MA et. al.

Apr 1st, 2022 - It's crucial to comprehend the impact of oxidative stress and pro-inflammatory cytokines in the gentamicin-induced kidney injury mechanism. Celecoxib was administered orally either before or after intraperitoneal therapy with gentamicin in mice. T...

Prognostic impact of blood urea nitrogen/creatinine ratio changes in patients with acut...
Clinical Neurology and Neurosurgery; Jiang WF, Deng ML

Mar 18th, 2022 - Blood urea nitrogen (BUN)/creatinine (Cr) ratio was an independent predictor of stroke-in-evolution (SIE) among patients who had suffered an acute ischemic stroke. We investigated the association of changes in BUN/Cr on stroke outcome during hospi...

Disentangling the association between kidney function and atrial fibrillation: a bidire...
International Journal of Cardiology; Geurts S, van der Burgh AC et. al.

Mar 13th, 2022 - The potential bidirectional causal association between kidney function and atrial fibrillation (AF) remains unclear. We conducted a bidirectional two-sample Mendelian randomization (MR) analysis. From multiple genome-wide association studies (GWAS...

Fast Five Quiz: Is Your Knowledge of Chronic Kidney Disease Sufficient?

Apr 20th, 2018 - Testing in patients with CKD typically includes a complete blood count (CBC), basic metabolic panel, and urinalysis, with calculation of renal function. Normochromic normocytic anemia is commonly seen in CKD. Other underlying causes of anemia shou...

BUN increase tracks with upper GI bleeding outcomes
Jim Kling

Apr 7th, 2017 - In patients with acute nonvariceal upper GI bleeding (UGIB), increased blood urea nitrogen (BUN) levels at 24 hours were associated with worse outcomes. The marker, already proven useful in acute pancreatitis, could help physicians determine a pat.

Fast Five Quiz: Are You Prepared to Confront Seasonal Affective Disorder?

Nov 23rd, 2016 - No diagnostic laboratory tests are available, but focused laboratory studies may be useful to exclude potential medical illnesses. These laboratory studies include the following: Complete blood cell (CBC) count Thyroid-stimulating hormone Vitamin ...

Renal Failure Risk Is Key in Albumin for Spontaneous Bacterial Peritonitis
M. Alexander Otto

Jun 4th, 2012 - SAN DIEGO – Cirrhotics with spontaneous bacterial peritonitis probably need albumin only if their total bilirubin is above 4 mg/dL and/or their blood urea nitrogen (BUN) is above 30 mg/dL, according to transplant hepatologist Dr. James Burton.
