This Core Curriculum article models a person-centered approach to care for older adults with kidney disease. We provide background information on the principles of person-centered care and outline ways in which this approach contrasts with the more disease-based approaches that dominate current medical education and practice. Using hypothetical cases, we discuss 3 clinical scenarios that arise commonly when caring for older adults with kidney disease: (1) a moderate reduction in estimated glomer...

There is increasing interest in the integration of patient-reported outcomes (PROs) into health care research and clinical practice for the benefit of patients with end-stage kidney disease receiving hemodialysis. In a research setting, PROs can be used as a patient-centered primary or secondary outcome in clinical studies. In routine care, PRO data may be used to support service delivery through benchmarking and audit or inform and enhance the care of the individual patient by improving patient...

Rationale & Objective Immunoglobulin A nephropathy (IgAN) is common worldwide and has heterogeneous phenotypes. Predicting long-term outcomes and stratifying risk are important for clinical decision making and designing future clinical trials. Study Design Multicenter retrospective cohort study of 2,047 patients with IgAN. Setting & Participants Derivation and validation cohorts composed of 1,022 Chinese patients with IgAN from a single center and 1,025 patients with IgAN from 18 renal centers, ...

Rationale & Objective Annually, about 100,000 US patients face the difficult choice between the most common dialysis types, in-center hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. This study evaluated the value of a new decision aid to assist in the choice of dialysis modality. Study Design A parallel-group randomized controlled trial to test the efficacy of the decision aid on decision-making outcomes. Setting & Participants English-speaking US adults with advanced chronic kidney disease and internet a...

Rationale & Objective Hyperglycemia exacerbates the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD), but most glucose-lowering therapies do not address morbidities associated with CKD. Sodium/glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors offer potential benefits to patients with diabetes and CKD, but their effectiveness may be diminished with decreased kidney function. We aimed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of bexagliflozin, a novel SGLT2 inhibitor, in patients with type 2 diabetes and CKD. ...

Rationale & Objective There is debate on whether weight loss, a hallmark of frailty, signals higher risk for adverse outcomes among recipients of deceased donor kidney transplantation (DDKT). Study Design Retrospective cohort study. Setting & Participants Using national Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network data, we included all DDKT recipients in the United States between December 4, 2004, and December 3, 2014, who were adults (aged ≥ 18 years) when listed for DDKT. Exposures Relative p...

Rationale & Objective Evidence suggests that cardiac remodeling, including left ventricular hypertrophy and myocardial fibrosis, develops with progression of kidney disease. Few studies have examined cardiac pathology across a range of estimated glomerular filtration rates (eGFRs), which was the objective of this investigation. Study Design Population-based cross-sectional study of deceased patients undergoing autopsy. Setting & Participants 334 of 694 consecutive deceased patients undergoing au...

Rationale & Objective The discovery of sodium storage without concurrent water retention suggests the presence of an additional compartment for sodium distribution in the body. The osmoregulatory role of this compartment under hypotonic conditions is not known. Study Design Experimental interventional study. Setting & Participants Single-center study of 12 apparently healthy men. Intervention To investigate whether sodium can be released from its nonosmotic stores after a hypotonic fluid load, a...
