We found that osteosarcopenic visceral obesity subjects had albumin values under the normal range (<4 gr\dl) and a higher level of azotemia (>40 mg\dl), glycemia (>110mg\dl), and FRAX (15% of risk of fractures).
Some dogs with leishmaniosis can have an impairment of renal perfusion secondary to hypovolemia or severe dehydration which would lead to an increase in SDMA concentration not associated with proteinuria or renal azotemia. Vasculitis of renal arterioles [37, 38] and myocarditis [38-41] have also been described in dogs with leishmaniosis and should be taken into account as less probable causes of decreased GFR.
Alternatively, dehydration resulting in prerenal azotemia and accumulation of uric acid may have altered systemic pH; this is supported by the presence of urate crystals in the kidney (i.e., nephric gout) which is often a result of dehydration in avian species.
A dose of 150 mg/kg b.w resulted in azotemia leading to death of the rat within a week.
It may also cause caseating granulomas and calcifications.7 Patients with brucella glomerulonephritis almost always have, proteinuria, and/or azotemia, but exact diagnosis is generally established with resolution of the clinical findings after antibiotic treatment for brucellosis.8 In case 2, microscopic haematuria, proteinuria, and increased BUN and creatinine levels were detected during the initial laboratory analysis while renal biopsy revealed acute tubulointerstitial nephritis.
Dogs with CKD in stage III present moderate azotemia with serum creatinine of 2.1-5.0mg [dl.sup.-1], and its clinical manifestations at this stage are more pronounced, requiring close monitoring and patient care (POLZIN, 2013).
En veterinaria, el tratamiento con lomustina obligo a realizar mas de 30% de interrupciones por toxicidad gastrointestinal (16%) y hepatica (13,6%), cursando con aumento de enzimas hepaticas, neutropenia, trombocitopenia y azotemia progresiva (69).
High-protein refeeding leads to hypernatremia associated with hypertonic dehydration, azotemia, and metabolic acidosis.
The tendency of the patient was to present prerenal azotemia. Moreover, partial necrosis of renal tubular epithelium may be present.
The compliance data in this study were gathered from patients who presented with azotemia and large residual urine.
[11] reported that ESKD patients with severe azotemia had greater ADC than healthy subjects, a finding that worsened with HD.
Increased BUN or creatinine can result from prerenal azotemia [19] through an inadequate kidney blood flow and a glomerular hydrostatic pressure insufficient to maintain the glomerular filtration rate [GFR] [36].
However, he also had severe azotemia at admission (BUN 53.6 mmol/L, Cr 1,230 [micro]mol/L) in contrast to his baseline values from one month earlier (Cr 115 [micro]mol/L).
