    Background: Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a major cause of chronic kidney disease. Control of hypertension and the use of angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEI) and/or angiotensin II receptor blockers especially in those with proteinuria have been shown to protect against chronic kidney...

    Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) acutely declines with the introduction of renin-angiotensin system inhibition. This response is functional, not anatomical, and varies with volume status. The reduction in GFR with renin-angiotensin system inhibition may serve as a biomeasure of future...

    Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) was used for analysis of kidney disease prevalence in the United States. The study investigated on prevalence, associated disorders, and kidney disease awareness in an Italian population sample. Data were collected on serum creatinine, other laboratory...

    Background and Purpose: Although considered standard of care for symptomatic urolithiasis, few data are available that evaluate the effects of multiple ureteroscopies (URS) with laser lithotripsies on long-term renal function. We investigated this relationship in a population with preexisting...

    Background/Aims: Serum cortisol level is elevated in patients with essential hypertension. We aimed at investigating the association of serum cortisol levels with parameters of renal function in essential hypertension.
