 Kidney Disease Marks Cardiovascular Disorders

Octogenarians in America suffer from chronic kidney disease, and as a consequence face coronary heart disease too, claims a research study.

The research, published in the April 21 online issue of the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology involved examining 1028 people over the age of eighty in four different American communities that are a part of in Cardiovascular Health Study All Stars. The research team used blood serum levels of creatinine or cystatin C as the disease markers.

The results came out differently, varying from 33 to 51 per cent depending on which marker was used. Using different formulas led to different estimates and the researchers claim that there is no uniform 'gold standard' that had been developed or established.  

The fact remains that the study established that those with chronic kidney disease were 1.5 to 2 times more likely to have heart disease than those without kidney problems.

Chronic kidney disease is very definitely linked to cardiovascular problems.
