End-Stage Renal Disease Associated with Diabetes United States, 1988
End-stage renal disease (ESRD) is a major complication of diabetes and requires dialysis or transplantation for survival. The Medicare program provides reim bursement* for greater than 90% of ESRD treatment in the United States and maintains information that provides a basis for surveillance of ESRD (1). In 1987, 33,393 new cases of ESRD were reported to Medicare, of which 9482 (28.4%) were attributed to diabetes. Previous studies indicate that the age-adjusted incidence of diabetes-attributable ESRD is three to seven times higher among blacks, American Indians, and Mexican Americans than among whites (2,3). Of the 18,854 ESRD cases reported to Medicare in January-June 1988, 4535 (24.1%) were attributed to diabetes: 2577 (56.8%) to adult-onset** type, 1836 (40.5%) to juvenile type, and 122 (2.7%) unclassified. ESRD was more commonly attributed to adult-onset diabetes among blacks (62.5%), Asians (67.7%), and American Indians (78.7%) than among whites (55.8%). ESRD cases attributed to adult-onset diabetes were most frequent in older age groups (Figure 1). ESRD cases attributed to juvenile diabetes are characterized by a bimodal distribution (Figure 1). However, because many noninsulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) patients are treated with insulin, they are often misclassified in surveys as insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) patients. This may account for the apparent increase in juvenile-diabetes-related ESRD cases in older age groups. Reported by: Bur of Data Management and Strategy, Health Care Financing Administration.

Alternate Names : ESRD, Kidney Failure - End Stage, Renal Failure - End Stage Definition End-stage kidney disease is a complete or near complete failure of the kidneys to function to excrete wastes, concentrate urine, and regulate electrolytes . Also called End-stage renal disease (ESRD).
Kidney Anatomy End-stage kidney disease occurs when the kidneys are no longer able to function at a level that is necessary for day to day life. It usually occurs as chronic renal failure progresses to the point where kidney function is less than 10% of baseline. At this point, the kidney function is so low that without dialysis or kidney transplantation, complications are multiple and severe, and death will occur from accumulation of fluids and waste products in the body.

Polycystic Kidney Disease
On this page: Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a genetic disorder characterized by the growth of numerous cysts in the kidneys. The cysts are filled with fluid. PKD cysts can slowly replace much of the mass of the kidneys, reducing kidney function and leading to kidney failure. The kidneys are two organs, each about the size of a fist, located in the upper part of a person's abdomen, toward the back. The kidneys filter wastes from the blood to form urine. They also regulate amounts of certain vital substances in the body. PKD can cause cysts in the liver and problems in other organs, such as the heart and blood vessels in the brain. These complications help doctors distinguish PKD from the usually harmless "simple" cysts that often form in the kidneys in later years of life. In the United States, about 500,000 people have PKD, and it is the fourth leading cause of kidney failure. Medical professionals describe two major inherited forms of PKD and a noninherited form:
  • Autosomal dominant PKD is the most common inherited form. Symptoms usually develop between the ages of 30 and 40, but they can begin earlier, even in childhood. About 90 percent of all PKD cases are autosomal dominant PKD.

End-Stage Renal Disease is a stage of renal impairment that appears irreversible and permanent, and requires a regular course of dialysis or a kidney transplant to maintain life.
Certification Services . There are 5 types of End-Stage Renal Disease facilities that are subject to certification:
  • Renal Transplantation Center - a hospital unit which provides transplantation and other medical/surgical specialty services associated with transplantation, including inpatient dialysis. A transplantation center may also be a renal dialysis center. Renal Dialysis Center - a hospital unit which provides the full spectrum of diagnostic, therapeutic, and rehabilitative services to care for dialysis patients, including inpatient and outpatient dialysis. Renal Dialysis Facility - a unit which provides dialysis services directly (i.e., not through contracted providers).

Diabetes and high blood pressure are two diseases that cause more than 60% of all cases of end-stage renal disease in the US. Other conditions that can lead to end-stage renal disease include:

    Research End-stage renal disease in Aboriginals in New South Wales: a very different picture to the Northern Territory Alan Cass, Adrian G Gillin and John S Horvath
    Introduction Methods Results ... More articles on Aboriginal health Abstract Objectives: To compare the incidence of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) among Aboriginals in New South Wales with the incidence among Aboriginals in the Northern Territory, and to compare the patterns of ESRD among Aboriginals and non-Aboriginals in NSW.
    Design: Secondary data analysis of information from unpublished and published Australia and New Zealand Dialysis and Transplant Registry reports.
    Main outcome measures: Average annual incidence of ESRD (persons per million); form of renal replacement therapy; mortality at 31 March 1998; patient and graft survival one and five years after transplant.
    Results: Each year in NSW, 5-17 new Aboriginal patients are treated for ESRD. There was no increase in the average annual incidence of ESRD among NSW Aboriginals (118 per million in 1988-1989 and 111 per million in 1996-1997), whereas incidence in the NT increased from 255 per million to 800 per million. In NSW, ESRD was attributed to diabetes in 32% of Aboriginal patients, compared with 13% of non-Aboriginal patients ( P
    Conclusion: There is a different pattern of incidence of ESRD and of outcomes with treatment among Aboriginals in NSW compared with those in the NT. A possible explanation is that the lower incidence in NSW reflects less profound socioeconomic disadvantage and better access to primary and specialist care.

    68. Log In Problems
    Based on a comparison of drug use and disease occurrence, these findings suggest that minimizing diuretic use might help reduce ESRD incidence.

    In the United States, nearly 300,000 people are on long-term dialysis and more than 20,000 have a functioning transplanted kidney. The most common cause of ESRD in the US is diabetes . ESRD almost always follows chronic kidney failure , which may exist for 10 to 20 years or more before progression to ESRD.

    Treatment for end stage kidney failure
    BACK NEXT Chronic kidney failure often progresses from early stage (partial) to end stage (complete) failure. There is no cure for end-stage renal failure (ESRF) also known as end-stage renal disease (ESRD). The damage done to the kidneys is irreversible. Treatment at the end stage of kidney failure involves replacing the lost functions of your kidneys by dialysis or by a kidney transplant. There are two kinds of dialysis treatment, hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis . Dialysis patients:
    • manage their fluid balance by adjusting what they drink manage the substances such as calcium and other nutrients that their bodies have to deal with by watching their renal diet are tested to monitor the effectiveness of their dialysis
    Transplantation is another treatment option. You will learn about the tests used for determining if a patient is suitable for receiving a transplant, and for monitoring a transplant. Dialysis patients are monitored and/or treated by the medical team in a Dialysis center Convenient summaries are provided of:

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
    (Redirected from End-stage renal failure Chronic renal failure (CRF) is a slowly progressive loss of renal function over a period of months or years and defined as an abnormally low glomerular filtration rate , which usually determined indirectly by the creatinine level in blood serum. CRF that leads to severe illness and requires some form of renal replacement therapy (such as dialysis ) is called end-stage renal disease (ESRD).

    Renal failure
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
    Renal failure is the condition where the kidneys fail to function properly. Physiologically , renal failure is described as a decrease in the glomerular filtration rate . Clinically, this manifests in an elevated serum creatinine. It can broadly be divided into two categories: acute renal failure and chronic renal failure.
