Research work on Chronic Kidney Diseases and Diagnosis
Journal of kidney treatment and diagnosis is a peer-reviewed, Open Access journal it covers several clinical areas of renal medicine, such as dialysis, transplantation, diabetes, anaemia, pharmacy nutrition and clinical aspects of kidney care.
Journal of Kidney Treatment and Diagnosis consists of the latest findings related to pathogenesis and treatment of kidney disease, hypertension, acid-base and electrolyte disorders, dialysis therapies, and kidney transplantation. The journal accepts manuscripts which are related to cell biology, developmental biology, genetics, immunology, pathology, the pathophysiology of renal disease and progression, clinical nephrology, dialysis, transplantation, clinical nephrology, diabetic nephropathy.
Chronic kidney disease:
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a complex disease impacting more than twenty million individuals in the United States. Progression of CKD is associated with several serious complications, including increased incidence of cardiovascular disease, hyperlipidemia, anemia and metabolic bone disease. CKD patients should be assessed for the presence of these complications and receive optimal treatment to reduce their morbidity and mortality. A multidisciplinary approach is required to accomplish this goal.
Patients with CKD present several complex management issues to health care providers. The staging system introduced in 2002 by the National Kidney Foundation is a significant accomplishment, which stratifies patients according to disease severity. In addition, the K/DOQI guidelines are an excellent tool for management of CKD and dialysis patients and recommend treatments according to disease stage. These interventions may reduce morbidity and mortality in these patients. With early identification and treatment of anemia, renal osteodystrophy, uremic malnutrition, hyperlipidemia and cardiovascular disease, primary care physicians and nephrologists together are making significant strides toward extending and improving the lives of patients with chronic renal disease.
Diagnosis of CKD is largely based on history, examination and urine dipstick combined with the measurement of the serum creatinine level (see above). It is important to differentiate CKD from acute kidney injury (AKI) because AKI can be reversible. One diagnostic clue that helps differentiate CKD from AKI is a gradual rise in serum creatinine (over several months or years) as opposed to a sudden increase in the serum creatinine (several days to weeks). In many people with CKD, previous kidney disease or other underlying diseases are already known. A significant number present with CKD of unknown cause.

On the occasion of its 2 years, Successful Journey, Journal of Kidney Treatment and Diagnosis decided to provide a partial waiver on its article processing charges to promote quality research from across the nations of the globe to encourage the latest research in the field of Infections, Diseases and Medicine. Journal of Kidney Treatment and Diagnosis also planning to release a special issue on its new approaches.
Journal of Kidney Treatment and Diagnosis publishes the manuscripts that are directly or indirectly based on variegated aspects of Articles that are submitted to our journal will undergo a double-blind peer-review process to maintain quality and the standards set for academic journals. The review process will do by our external reviewers which are double-blind. The comments will upload directly to the editorial tracking system. Later the editor will check the comments whether it is acceptable or not. The overall process will take around 21 days under with the editor. After acceptance by the editor, it will be published on the Press page. Authors can submit their manuscripts to the online submission portal.
