Chronic Kidney Disease - Tests and Treatment Information



Diagnosis and Management of Chronic Kidney Disease
November 2008

Chronic kidney disease (CKD), is  defined by a reduction in the estimated glomerular filtration rate (GFR). It is increasing because of the greater prevalence of obesity and hypertension but in greater part because of improved longevity. Because GFR declines 1% per year for every year of life after the third decade, living longer means that it is possible to outlive one’s renal function and to require renal replacement therapy to stay alive. Longevity increases the risk of developing diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension, and atherosclerotic vascular disease, that have direct adverse effects on kidney function.

Increase in Creatinine Due to Use of Fenofibrate


Hypothyroid patients have increased cholesterol and tryglycerides. To manage this lipids problem, both statins and fenofibrates are used.

Nephrologie. 1999;20(1):41-4.

Fenofibrate increases blood creatinine, but does not change the glomerular filtration rate in patients with mild renal insufficiency

Nephron. 2002;92(3):536-41.

Fenofibrate increases creatininemia by increasing metabolic production of creatinine.

Weight Loss Plateau - A Normal Occurrence



Eat 1200 calories for day. As it is less than the basic metabolism energy requirement, you will lose weight.

If you are trying a weight loss idea and going on a diet and exercise plan, you may see the results initially but then you may not see any weight loss for some weeks. Various authors say it is a normal occurrence. You need to believe in the logic of your plan and you have to continue with your diet and exercise. The result can come suddenly. You can also try some other alternatives to break the routine and allow the body to give up its resistance to weight loss.

Why the plateau occurs?


The plateau occurs because of the way your body responds to your weight loss actions. It may reduce basal metabolic rate, it may increase fat creation, it may retain more water. In what ways your body responds, one does not know. But your weight loss routine will overcome the body's tricks over a longer time and weight loss will occur and you can see it once again in the measurements of weighing machine.
