Atrial Fibrillation combined with Chronic Kidney Disease increase risk for ESRD

Stethoscope - BSN

(Best Syndication New) - Researchers from the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and the Kaiser Permanente Northern California Division of Research, found an increased risk for kidney failure in people who have atrial fibrillation and chronic kidney disease. In general, kidney function can fail over time with the chronic condition which can lead to dialysis treatments or a kidney transplant. Kidney problems are more likely to worsen in atrial fibrillation patients who already have kidney function impairment. The study results were published in the journal Circulation.

Irregular heart rhythm is a very common type of atrial fibrillation. Patients who have atrial fibrillation along with chronic kidney disease or end stage-renal disease (ESRD) are at an increased risk for suffering from a stroke or death. The researchers wanted to understand why atrial fibrillation patients with kidney disease are more likely to have end-stage renal disease compared to those with chronic kidney disease only.

Benchmarks

The Boeing Company (NYSE:BA) weighed on the Dow Jones Industrial Average today pushing the index down 23 points, however the wider market gained value. Because there are only 30 constituents in the Dow, a three percent pull-back in the value of BA had a major influence on the index.

Stack of money - BSN

(Best Syndication News) - Researchers found that students who got financial help from their parents when attending college were more likely to graduate, but with lower grade point averages (GPAs). The study results will be published in the February issue of the American Sociological Review.

Laura T. Hamilton, a sociology professor at the University of California, Merced, studied what impact financial assistance from parents had on students’ grades and graduation rates. The good news is that parents who supported their child financially in college were best at avoiding serious academic trouble. However, at the same time earning good grades also diminished.
