Dr B.Preethi, Dr RR Barde, Dr Himanshu Sharma, Dr R Gupta, Dr P Dhurvey.


Abstract

Background: Hyperuricemia and left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy are prevalent in chronic
kidney disease (CKD), but the association of uric acid (UA) and left ventricular mass index
(LVMI) with renal outcomes in patients with CKD is unclear. We conducted a study to assess
whether the combination of UA and LVMI is associated with renal outcomes in patients with
CKD of stages 3-5.
Objetives: 1) To assess LVMI and uric acid in CKD patients not on renal replacement
therapy. 2) Assessment of correlation of LVMI and uric acid with renal function decline. 3)
Assessment of co-relation of LVMI and uric acid levels in hypertensive and nonhypertensive
patients.

Key words: CKD, eGFR, LVMI, Uric acid, Serum Creatinine
