Kidney International Reports announcement

It is with great pleasure that I announce the launch of ISN’s new Journal: Kidney International Reports (KI Reports). KI Reports is designed to be a sister journal of Kidney International published in open access format.

 Chronic kidney disease is now recognized to be a worldwide problem associated with significant morbidity and mortality and there is a steep increase in the number of patients reaching end-stage renal disease. In many parts of the world, the disease affects younger people without diabetes or hypertension. The costs to family and society can be enormous. Early recognition of CKD may help prevent disease progression and the subsequent decline in health and longevity. Surveillance programs for early CKD detection are beginning to be implemented in a few countries. In this article, we will focus on the challenges and successes of these programs with the hope that their eventual and widespread use will reduce the complications, deaths, disabilities, and economic burdens associated with CKD worldwide.

This presentation was given by Jai Radhakrishnan (Kidney International) at the 44th Annual Conference of the Indian Society of Nephrology (ISNCON) from 12- 15 December, 2013 Gurgaon (Dehli), India.

A presentation focusing on Edema, hyperlipidemia, hypercoagulability and proteinura reduction strategies.

The KDIGO guideline is designed to help practitioners make an informed decision on management of patients with glomerular disease. However, the care of a patient should be individualized, and in this short presentation, the workup and treatment of a patient with FSGS in the context of the KDIGO guideline is discussed.
