[PRESSWIRE] Parma - 12 September, 2018 -- A study, which has been published in NDT [1] today shows that caffeine consumption is associated with a lower mortality rate in CKD patients. This relationship has already been observed in the general population. Although this study shows that this association may persist if caffeine is consumed through caffeine-containing soft drinks, the president of the European Renal Nutrition Working Group, Professor Denis Fouque, recommends CKD patients not to consume these soft drinks, but to drink coffee or tea instead.

[PRESSWIRE] Copenhagen, Denmark - 25 May, 2018  -- Klotho, the Greek goddess who spins the thread of life, has become popular among nephrologists, because the genes named after her encode receptors for hormones that play critical roles in the pathophysiology of chronic kidney disease (CKD).
