Book Excerpt :

The present book contains the Proceedings of a two day Symposium on Uremic Toxins organized at the University of Ghent in Belgium. A series of guest lectures, free communications and posters have been presented. An international audience of 163 scientists from 16 nationalities listened to and discussed extensively a spectrum of topics brought forward by colleagues and researchers who worked for many years in the field of Uremic Toxins. There is a striking contrast between all the new dialysis strategies available in the work to "clean" the uremic patients and the almost non-progression of our knowledge on uremic toxins in the past decade. In this sense the symposium was felt by all participants as a new start for the research in the biochemical field of the definition of uremia. If the present volume would stimulate new work in this field in order to define uremia, or identify the uremic toxins, the purpose of the organizers would be maximally fulfilled.

Book Short Summary:

Twelve-time New York Times bestselling author Mark Hyman, MD, presents his unique Pegan diet—including meal plans, recipes, and shopping lists. For decades, the diet wars have pitted advocates for the low-carb, high-fat paleo diet against advocates of the exclusively plant-based vegan diet and dozens of other diets leaving most of us bewildered and confused. For those of us on the sidelines, trying to figure out which approach is best has been nearly impossible—both extreme diets have unique benefits and drawbacks. But how can it be, we've asked desperately, that our only options are bacon and butter three times a day or endless kale salads? How do we eat to reverse disease, optimal health, longevity and performance. How do we eat to reverse climate change? There must be a better way! Fortunately, there is. With The Pegan Diet's food-is-medicine approach, Mark Hyman explains how to take the best aspects of the paleo diet (good fats, limited refined carbs, limited sugar) and combine them with the vegan diet (lots and lots of fresh, healthy veggies) to create a delicious diet that is not only good for your brain and your body, but also good for the planet. Featuring thirty recipes and plenty of infographics illustrating the concepts, The Pegan Diet offers a balanced and easy-to-follow approach to eating that will help you get, and stay, fit, healthy, focused, and happy—for life.

  • Pdf File: dietary-patterns-and-whole-plant-foods-in-aging-and-disease.pdf

Book Short Summary:

This text provides a comprehensive review of the latest research on the effects of dietary patterns and whole plant foods on general health, aging, and cardiometabolic disease risk from major prospective cohort studies and randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and their meta-analyses. The book extensively assesses, the effects of lifestyle, dietary patterns, and specific whole plant foods on the quality of aging; the impact of fiber-rich foods on colonic microbiotia and weight regulation, the effects of which influence the quality of aging; the effects of fiber-rich diets on the aging gastrointestinal tract; and the role of dietary patterns and specific whole plant foods on coronary heart disease, hypertension, chronic kidney disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes. Figures are extensively used to highlight findings and tables summarizing food composition dietary patterns and whole plant foods. Tables summarizing meta-analyses and representative cohort studies and RCTs provide state-of-the-art coverage of the important effect of dietary patterns and whole plant foods on aging and cardiometabolic diseases. Dietary Patterns and Whole Plant Foods in Aging and Disease will serve as a very useful, state -of -the-art resource for dietitians, physicians, nurses, food industry scientists, researchers, naturopathic doctors, educators and their students interested in the role of dietary patterns and specific whole plant foods on aging and disease. The probability of healthy aging and disease prevention is significantly improved by 70% when individuals and populations follow a healthy lifestyle. Healthy lifestyle choices include adhering to a healthy dietary pattern, increasing physical activity most days of the week, achieving and maintaining lean body weight and waist size, and the cessation of smoking. It is estimated that 90% or more of those in westernized populations are on track for unhealthy aging and increased cardiometabolic disease risk, especially with the obesity pandemic associated with relatively poor diet quality and sedentary lifestyles. Healthy dietary patterns significantly lower risk of all-cause mortality and chronic disease incidence compared to Western dietary patterns. Since healthy whole and minimally processed plant foods vary widely in their nutrient and phytochemical compositions, their overall benefit in aging and disease may vary depending on the specific whole plant foods consumed.

  • Pdf File: chronic-kidney-disease.pdf

Book Short Summary:

This book provides a comprehensive and systematic review of the latest findings in a wide spectrum of clinically important aspects of chronic kidney disease (CKD), focusing on clinical diagnosis and therapeutics. CKD is a global health problem with a rising morbidity and mortality. The last decade has seen significant improvements in determining the incidence, prevalence, and complications of CKD, mainly thanks to the definitions of CKD developed by the National Kidney Foundation’s Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative (K/DOQI). However, increased recognition of CKD has led to awareness of the limitations of its clinical diagnosis and treatment, which are essential to patients’ wellbeing. This book is of particular value not only to nephrologists, but also to general practitioners and residents with an interest in CKD. It offers a well-organized exposition of the current knowledge base. Compared with previously published books on kidney disease and CKD, it has a smaller number of more concise chapters. As a result, readers can easily obtain an overview of the most important topics in CKD. We hope that practitioners will gain as much from reading this practical guide to clinical management of CKD as we have from editing it.

Book Short Summary:

This book highlights recent advances in our understanding of sarcopenia and frailty in CKD. The prevalence of sarcopenia and frailty increases substantially as CKD progresses, and experimental studies have demonstrated the pivotal role of accumulated uremic toxin in the development of muscle wasting. Further, sarcopenia and frailty are associated with falls, bone fractures, cognitive impairment, and poor survival prognoses, especially in elderly CKD patients. The syndromes are also related to the risk of end-stage kidney disease. This book provides readers with a deeper understanding of the prevention and management of sarcopenia and frailty in CKD patients to improve their renal and overall health, and suggests directions for future basic and clinical research.

Book Short Summary:

As a patient, the author, Mrs. Curtis, relates her own experience in dealing with the renal diet. Through a positive approach, she demonstrates that sometimes when you "make the best of it," the results are better than if the problem had not occurred. Fellow patients will recognize many of the author's feelings and obstacles as their own. The second edition of THE RENAL PATIENT'S GUIDE TO GOOD EATING includes many new dishes as well as nutritional information for all recipes. This should make it easier for renal patients and their dietitians to determine how these dishes can best fit into their diet plans. The analyses can be used as a guide to appropriate serving sizes for each patient's daily allowances of sodium, potassium and phosphorus. Great care has been taken to include complete nutrition information wherever possible. This cookbook is suitable for anyone. It does not separate the "dieters" from others. There will be no whispered requests for the salt shaker because the taste is there, in the form of herbs, spices, wine and other "allowed" flavorings. Especially valuable are the sections where salt is typically relied upon heavily, namely, meat, fish, poultry, sandwiches and vegetables. There are recipes ranging from appetizers to desserts, quick and simple to the more elaborate. The author provides guidelines for adjusting to a healthy heart diet, as well as to renal diets, which require more or less stringency. This book is certain to enlighten and inspire anyone with kidney disease, from the newly diagnosed to the more experienced. With this book, the doctor's answer to his patient's question "Could you give me some more ideas for meals?" can be answered with "I have just the book for you "

Book Short Summary:

Interventional cardiologists are able to perform minimally invasive procedures, such as angioplasty and stenting, due to imaging technologies that allow them to see inside the heart and blood vessels without open surgery. Such imaging often requires injection of contrast media, which are generally safe, but for some patients with drug sensitivities or compromised kidney function, contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) can result. CIN is a major complication that can increase in-hospital mortality. This issue of Interventional Cardiology Clinica addresses the management, treatment, and prevention of renal complications in the catheterization laboratory.
