A Way to Diagnose Protein Energy Wasting in Children with Kidney Disease

CHILDREN with kidney disease are vulnerable to protein energy wasting (PEW), reported an observational study from St John’s National Academy of Health Sciences, Bangalore, India.

Hospitalised Patients with COVID-19 and Kidney Disease

PATIENTS hospitalised due to COVID-19 with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) showed better outcomes than patients with non-dialysis chronic kidney disease (CKD), an observational, retrospective study from New York City, New York, USA, reported.

White Matter Damage Linked to Poor Cognitive Function

A Prescription of Aerobic Exercise for Rheumatic Disorders

EXERCISE reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease in those with rheumatic disorders. Individuals with autoimmune rheumatic diseases (ARDs), such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, are more likely to develop atherosclerosis and are thereby at a higher risk of a heart attack and other cardiovascular disorders.

A Safer Strategy for Steroid Use in Patients with Lupus

LUPUS could now be treated with a lower dose of steroids, lessening the side effects experienced by patients and improving their health long-term. The research was published by Eric Morand and the Rheumatology Group at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia, who aimed to gain insight into ways of tracking patient exposure to steroids.

Key Gut Bacteria Hungry for Green Vegetables

SULFOSUGARS from green vegetables promote important gut bacteria in humans, research from Vienna has found. The team from the Center for Microbiology and Environmental Systems Science, University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria, analysed how the gut microbes processed the plant-based, sulfur-containing sugar sulfoquinovose, a sulfonic acid derivative of glucose, which is found in greens such as lettuce, spinach, and algae; they discovered that a group of specialised gut bacteria co-operated in the utilisation of the sulfosugars to produce hydrogen sulfide.
