Novel Proinflammatory Function of Renal Intercalated Cells.

Ann Nutr Metab 2018 20;72 Suppl 2:11-16. Epub 2018 Jun 20.

Background: Serious and often fatal acute kidney injury (AKI) is frequently seen after major surgery, local and remote organ damage, and sepsis. It is associated with uncontrolled inflammation, and is usually diagnosed only after the kidneys have gone through significant and often irreversible damage.

Summary: During our work involving another type of kidney disease that leads to acid-base disorders of the blood, we unexpectedly found high levels of a protein called the P2Y14 "purinergic" receptor, in specialized kidney epithelial cells called intercalated cells (ICs). Read More

Vasopressin and the Regulation of Thirst.

Authors:
Daniel G Bichet

Ann Nutr Metab 2018 20;72 Suppl 2:3-7. Epub 2018 Jun 20.

Recent experiments using optogenetic tools allow the identification and functional analysis of thirst neurons and vasopressin producing neurons. Two major advances provide a detailed anatomy of taste for water and arginine-vasopressin (AVP) release: (1) thirst and AVP release are regulated not only by the classical homeostatic, intero-sensory plasma osmolality negative feedback, but also by novel, extero-sensory, anticipatory signals. These anticipatory signals for thirst and vasopressin release converge on the same homeostatic neurons of circumventricular organs that monitor the composition of the blood; (2) acid-sensing taste receptor cells (which express polycystic kidney disease 2-like 1 protein) on the tongue that were previously suggested as the sour taste sensors also mediate taste responses to water.

Osmoregulation in Polycystic Kidney Disease: Relationship with Cystogenesis and Hypertension.

Ann Nutr Metab 2018 20;72 Suppl 2:33-38. Epub 2018 Jun 20.

Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a group of monogenetic conditions characterised by the progressive accumulation of multiple renal cysts and hypertension. One of the earliest features of PKD is a reduction in urinary concentrating capacity that impairs extracellular fluid conservation. Urinary concentrating impairment predisposes PKD patients to periods of hypohydration when fluid loss is not adequately compensated by fluid intake. Read More

Authors:
Adeera Levin

Ann Nutr Metab 2018 20;72 Suppl 2:28-32. Epub 2018 Jun 20.

Background: Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a major public health problem and is increasingly being recognized as an important driver of costs in all health care systems. The diversity of outcomes for people living with CKD is in part due to variability in biology, access to care, environmental factors, and health care system differences. The International Society of Nephrology (ISN), working in collaboration with its partners, has evolved into a philanthropic organization, from a traditional medical society, committed to a vision that sees "a future where all people have access to sustainable kidney health".

The Double Burden of Malnutrition in Countries Passing through the Economic Transition.

Ann Nutr Metab 2018 10;72 Suppl 3:47-54. Epub 2018 Apr 10.

MRC Unit The Gambia at LSHTM, Banjul, Gambia.

Undernutrition in both its acute and chronic forms (wasting and stunting) is strongly inversely correlated with the wealth of nations. Consequently, as many low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) achieve economic advancement and pass through the so-called "nutrition transition," their rates of undernutrition decline. Many countries successfully achieved the Millennium Development Goal of halving undernutrition and whole continents have been transformed in recent decades. Read More

Nutrition for the Next Generation: Older Children and Adolescents.

Ann Nutr Metab 2018 9;72 Suppl 3:56-64. Epub 2018 Apr 9.

Division of Women and Child Health, Aga Khan University, Karachi, Pakistan.

This paper reviews information on why the nutrition of older children (5-9 years) and adolescents (10-19 years) is important and the consequences that it can have over generations. Developing countries still face a high burden of undernutrition and anemia, while the burden of overweight and obesity is on the rise in both developing and developed countries. There are evidence-based interventions which can improve the nutritional status and these include interventions for a balanced and diverse diet and micronutrient supplementation, especially iron and multiple micronutrient supplementation where there is sufficient evidence to reduce anemia.

Authors:
Hania Szajewska

Ann Nutr Metab 2018 9;72 Suppl 3:13-23. Epub 2018 Apr 9.

Currently, it is impossible to think of modern healthcare that ignores evidence-based medicine (EBM), a concept which relies on 3 pillars: individual clinical expertise, the values and desires of the patient, and the best available research. However, EBM is not perfect. Clinical research is also far from being perfect. Read More

Fats in Foods: Current Evidence for Dietary Advice.

Ann Nutr Metab 2018 27;72(3):248-254. Epub 2018 Mar 27.

Experimental Nutrition (retired), Maastricht University, Maastricht, the Netherlands.

Current discussion of the importance of food fats in the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) often suffers from preconceptions, misunderstandings, insufficient knowledge, and selective reasoning. As a result, the sustained controversy about dietary fat recommendations can be contradictory and confusing. To clarify some of these issues, the International Expert Movement to Improve Dietary Fat Quality in cooperation with the International Union of Nutritional Sciences (IUNS) organized a symposium at the 21st meeting of the IUNS, October 17, 2017, Buenos Aires, Argentina, to summarize the key scientific evidence underlying the controversy on the relationship between the saturated and unsaturated fat consumption and CHD risk.

Maternal and Foetal Health Implications of Vitamin D Status during Pregnancy.

Ann Nutr Metab 2018 13;72(3):179-192. Epub 2018 Mar 13.

Gynecology Service, Virgen de la Arrixaca Hospital, Murcia, Spain.

Background: To what extent does the circulating 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25[OH]D) concentration help to meet the physiological needs of humans is an ongoing subject of debate. Remaining unexposed to the sun to reduce melanoma cancer risk, current lifestyle with less out door activities, and increasing obesity rates, which in turn increases the storage of vitamin D in the adipose tissue, are presumably factors that contribute to the substantial upsurge in the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in humans. Since evidence is lacking regarding the appropriate cut-off points to define vitamin D status during pregnancy, references used to establish the intake recommendations and vitamin D content of prenatal vitamin supplements are quite conservative.

Dietary Docosahexaenoic Acid and Arachidonic Acid in Early Life: What Is the Best Evidence for Policymakers?

Ann Nutr Metab 2018 8;72(3):210-222. Epub 2018 Mar 8.

Department of Human Health and Nutritional Sciences, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, Canada.

Background: A wealth of information on the functional roles of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and arachidonic acid (ARA) from cellular, animal, and human studies is available. Yet, there remains a lack of cohesion in policymaking for recommended dietary intakes of DHA and ARA in early life. This is predominantly driven by inconsistent findings from a relatively small number of randomised clinical trials (RCTs), which vary in design, methodology, and outcome measures, all of which were conducted in high-income countries.

Background: This analysis sets out an overview of an IUNS presentation of a European clinician's assessment of the challenges of coping with immediate critical clinical problems and how to use metabolic and a mechanistic understanding of disease when developing nutritional policies.

Summary: Critically ill malnourished children prove very sensitive to both mineral and general nutritional overload, but after careful metabolic control they can cope with a high-quality, energy-rich diet provided their initial lactase deficiency and intestinal atrophy are taken into account. Detailed intestinal perfusion studies also showed that gastroenteritis can be combatted by multiple frequent glucose/saline feeds, which has saved millions of lives. Read More
