Acute Kidney Injury Differential Diagnoses

Diagnostic Considerations Although acute kidney injury (AKI) is a potentially reversible condition, it can occur in patients with chronic renal failure. Every effort should be made to identify reversibility, even if improvement in renal function is marginal. The best way to identify reversibility is by tracking the rate of deterioration of renal function. If there is an acceleration of the rate at which the patient’s renal function is worsening, the cause should be sought and treated. Differentials to consider in AKI include the following: Urine output in differential diagnosis Changes in urine output generally correlate poorly with changes in the glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Approximately 50-60% of all causes of AKI are nonoliguric. However, the identification of anuria, oliguria, and nonoliguria may be useful in the differential diagnosis of AKI, as follows: Anuria (< 100 mL/day) - Urinary tract obstruction, renal artery obstruction, rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis, bilateral diffuse renal cortical necrosis Nonoliguria (>400 mL/day) - Acute interstitial nephritis, acute glomerulonephritis, partial obstructive nephropathy, nephrotoxic and ischemic ATN, radiocontrast- Continue reading >>

    The majority of people in the sub-reddit think that calories are more important than foods that cause insulin spike and if you think otherwise you get down-voted in to v/keto. Whats the point of changing your diet to get into ketosis if you think you won't lose weight unless you restrict your calories? That sub is now an extension of r/nutrition.

    Before reddit permanently banned me (I can't even make an account anymore), I was downvoted a lot on /r/keto for pointing out that exercise has a negligible effect on weight loss, and I was also downvoted into oblivion anytime I told any diabetic (type 1 or 2) to work closely with their Dr when going on a keto diet because there are risks associated with it (especially for type 1 diabetics because they don't produce insulin... which is why they go into ketoacidosis!). That reddit keto sub is also getting filled up with "fat acceptance" types which is counter productive to weight loss.

    I mean you should still watch your calories if you are having trouble with your weight, or not hitting goals you set out for yourself. Switching to a keto diet can only help so much, so why not make the most out of it.

  • What Is Really Causing Diabetes?

    The recent film What the Health raised the question as to whether sugar or other carbohydrates cause diabetes. The notion is understandable. Blood sugar levels are high in diabetes, so a common idea has held that eating sugar somehow triggers the disease process. However, the major diabetes organizations take a different view. The American Diabetes Association1 and Diabetes UK2 have labelled this notion a “myth,” as has the Joslin Diabetes Ce ...
