Chronic Kidney Disease of Multifactorial Origin (CKDmfo/CKDu): Escalating Incidence and Long-term Survival Estimates
Shehani A. Wimalawansa and Sunil J. Wimalawansa*
With the implementation of new safety laws, occupational injuries and deaths are decreasing, but the incidence of non-communicable diseases increasing, especially in agricultural communities. Careless use of agrochemicals and agro-equipment pollute the environment and, lack of protective gear continues harming farmers. A chronic kidney disease of multifactorial origin (CKDmfo; also known as CKDu) is affecting mostly male farmers in several equatorial countries, including Sri Lanka, but causative factor is not identified. The current study constructed to assess the impact of this issue on the society. Survival prediction charts were developed using series of assumptions based on the current death rate.

Ponce D*, Bertotti MZ, Zamoner W, Sasaoka SM, Balbi AL, Resende LA
Peripheral neuropathy is a well-known complication of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and occurs in approximately 60–80% of patients suffering stage 5 CKD. The frequency of peripheral neuropathy in patients with CKD has declined owing to improvements in the modalities, techniques and doses of dialysis. Thus, uraemic neuropathy can be considered to be an indicator of inadequate treatment by dialysis. It has been pointed out that uraemic neuropathy often remains mild or subclinical, and detectable only by electrophysiologic studies.
