Background: A non-dipper blood pressure (BP) pattern is very common in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients and affects the progression and development of cardiovascular disease. However, data on the reversed dipper BP pattern on target-organ damage in Chinese CKD patients are lacking. Methods: A total of 540 CKD patients were enrolled. Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM), clinical BP, ultrasonographic assessment and other clinical data were collected. Univariate and multivariate analyses were used to ascertain the relationship between ABPM results and clinical parameters. Results: A total of 21.9% CKD patients had a reversed dipper BP pattern, 42% of patients had a non-dipper BP pattern and 36.1% of patients had a dipper BP pattern. Patients with reversed dipper BP pattern had the worst renal function and most severe cardiovascular damages among these CKD patients (p<0.05). The estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and left ventricular mass index (LVMI) correlated significantly with the rate of decline of nocturnal BP. A reversed dipper BP pattern was an independent factor affecting kidney damage and left ventricular hypertrophy. Age, lower hemoglobin level, higher 24-h systolic BP from ABPM, and higher serum phosphate levels were independent associated with a reversed dipper BP pattern after multivariate logistic regression analyses. Conclusion: The reversed dipper BP pattern is closely related to severe renal damage and cardiovascular injuries in CKD patients, and special attention should be given to these CKD patients.

    Background: Although the prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) is 10-14%, several prospective studies note a low rate of progression to end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in stages 3 and 4. A correct classification of risk of progression, based on demonstrated predictive factors, would allow...

    Background: Multiple solutes are retained in uremia, but it is currently unclear which solutes are toxic. Small studies suggest that protein-bound solutes, such as p-cresol sulfate and indoxyl sulfate and intracellular solutes, such as methylamine (MMA) and dimethylamine (DMA), may be toxic. Our...

    Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is defined as either kidney damage or an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) of less than 60 mLmin 1.73 m2 for more than 3 months. Kidney damage is defined as pathological abnormalities or markers of damage, including abnormalities in blood or urine tests or...

    There are a lack of studies about elderly patients with chronic renal failure (CRF). We studied 22 patients, aged 64 to 74 years, who were diagnosed with hypertensive nephropathy (HN), defined as a diastolic blood pressure (DBP) < 95 mm Hg and a basal creatinine clearance (CCr) of 52 ± 6...

    The effects of diltiazem (DTZ) treatment on blood pressure, renal function and renal hemodynamics over a six week period of therapy were evaluated in 14 adult patients with mild to moderate hypertension. Their creatinine clearances were 64 to 153 ml/min. After a week of treatment with placebo,...
