    Chronic kidney disease is acknowledged as one of the most relevant disease for public health. Knowledge of epidemiology of CKD may allow public health interventions both for prevention and treatment in order to limit burden and management costs. Nefrodata is a multicentric, prospective, and obse...
  3. Economic effects of treatment of chronic kidney disease with low-protein diet.

    Journal of Renal Nutrition 24(5):313 (2014) PMID 25167997

    The most recent literature has shown extensively that a low-protein diet in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) delays the natural progression of end-stage renal disease and the necessary treatment of chronic dialysis. The aim of this study was to estimate the cost-effectiveness of a very...

  12. [Changes in the uremic population overtime: data from the Italian Registry of Dialysis and Transplantation (RIDT)].

    Giornale italiano di nefrologia : organo uffici... 29 Suppl 58:S21 (2012) PMID 23229599

    Over the last years in the industrialized countries there have been many changes in the number and characteristics of patients starting renal replacement therapy. This review reports the changes that took place in Italy, analyzing the data from the Italian Registry of Dialysis and Transplantatio...
  13. Awareness of albuminuria in an Italian population-based cohort of patients treated with hypoglycemic drugs.

    JN 25(3):325 (2012) PMID 21748718

    Albuminuria is a powerful predictor of renal and cardiovascular outcomes in type 2 diabetes and a good indicator of the evolution of renal disease. Our aim was to obtain information concerning the identification of albuminuria as well as the utilization of antihypertensive, lipid-lowering and an...
  14. Fluid and electrolyte balance after major thoracic surgery by bioimpedance and endocrine evaluation.

    European Journal of Cardio-thoracic Surgery 40(2):e71 (2011) PMID 21530295

    Weight gain with oedema development is a complication of major surgical procedures with an incidence as high as 40%. Fluid retention is not always clinically evident and it is reported despite fluid-restriction regime. The causes are several and not totally clear. We performed a prospective stud...

  16. Circulating levels and dietary intake of the advanced glycation end-product marker carboxymethyl lysine in chronic kidney disease patients on conservative predialysis therapy: a pilot study.

    Journal of Renal Nutrition 21(4):329 (2011) PMID 21193322

    Advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) are proposed to influence inflammatory pathways and cardiovascular risk in chronic kidney disease (CKD). Dietary AGEs are believed to sustain circulating levels and toxicity in this condition. We investigated this aspect in a cross-sectional pilot study mea...
