Serum prolactin level and inflammation in chronic kidney disease
Author(s): Dr. Syed Iftekhar Husain
Abstract: Chronic kidney disease is identified by a blood test for creatinine, which is a breakdown product of muscle metabolism. Higher levels of creatinine indicate a lower glomerular filtration rate and as a result a decreased capability of the kidneys to excrete waste products. Creatinine levels may be normal in the early stages of CKD, and the condition is discovered if urinalysis (testing of a urine sample) shows the kidney is allowing the loss of protein or red blood cells into the urine. The study has planned in Shri Ramkrishna Institute of Medical Sciences & Sanaka Hospitals. The 25 patients diagnosed with chronic kidney disease were enrolled in to the study. The age group of the patients are from 30-70 years. Out of 25 study cases stage III CKD patients are 2 this are having creatinine clearance of 30-60 ml/min. 10 patients who are in Stage IV of CKD were having the creatinine clearance of 15-30 ml/min. The Stage V CKD patients are 13 having creatine clearance of Less than 15 ml/min. In the enrolled study group patients there are 13 patients are having positive serum prolactin observation and 12 patients were negative for the serum prolactin. Form the present study it can be concluded that results of above-mentioned studies are in line with our study basal serum levels of hormone prolactin remained elevated in more than 50% of CKD patients.
