BACKGROUND: Hemodialysis-associated pruritus (HAP) is often treatment-resistant, and is a serious comorbidity that adversely affects prognosis and reduces patient quality of life through sleep disruption and depression. SUMMARY: HAP can arise from a combination of several causes; accordingly, it is often resistant to treatment. HAP patients need the specific causes of their itching to be identified, with a comprehensive approach to treatment. We have implemented our own therapeutic algorithm, which covers cause specification, for HAP since June 2009...

Purpose: Hemodialysis patients commonly have impaired physical performance and mental health. We studied the effects of an intradialytic exercise program on these variables. Methods: 27 patients (33% women; 68 ± 13 years) were enrolled in a 14-week intradialytic endurance-resistance training program ('exercise' group, 40 programmed sessions per patient); 40 hemodialysis patients (28% women; 68 ± 11 years) performing no exercise during the same time length were used as controls. Endpoints included physical performance (6-min walk test [6MWT], 10-repetition sit to stand [STS-10] and handgrip strength), emotional status (Beck's depression inventory and State-Trait Anxiety Inventory), and mental and physical component scores of the short-from (SF)-12 Health Survey...

Fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) is a bone-derived protein produced mainly by osteocytes and osteoblasts and at low levels in specific parts of the brain. It has been shown to associate with mood regulation. Lithium treatment gives rise to significant elevations of serum FGF23 levels in depressive patients. High peripheral blood FGF23 levels correlated with poor cognitive performance in hemodialysis patients. However, no direct evidence demonstrates a relationship between FGF23 and mood regulation. In this study, we aimed to measure the concentration of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) FGF23 and to explore its relationship with a cluster of emotional characteristics...

Depression is more common in many medical conditions than among the general population and is associated with an increased risk of mortality. We aimed to determine whether somatic symptoms of depression were more predictive of mortality than affective and cognitive symptoms in hemodialysis patients. We conducted a prospective cohort study in which the survival outcomes of 151 subjects were followed for more than 3 years. Depression was assessed with the Taiwanese Depression Questionnaire (TDQ). Subjects with TDQ scores 19-54 (correlated with clinically significant depressive symptoms) and those with scores 15-18 had higher 3-year mortality rates than the two groups with lower scores (40...
