12 “SICK DAY” MEDICATION ADVICE: Dear Patient:If you become acutely ill, especially if you have diarrhea or vomiting, the following types of medication should be held until you are better. These drugs are good at protecting the kidney and the heart as well as for blood pressure control, but paradoxically they can be harmful if you are dehydrated.ACE-inhibitors-Ramipril (Altace) -Fosinopril (Monopril)-Enalapril (Vasotec) -Perindopril (Coversyl)-Lisinopril (Zestril) -Cilazapril (Inhibace)-Trandolopril (Mavik)Angiotensin Receptor Blockers-Telmisartan (Micardis) -Candesartan (Atacand) -Olmesartan (Olmetec)-Valsartan (Diovan) -Losartan (Cozaar)-Irbesartan (Avapro) -Eposartan (Teveten)Direct Renin Inhibitors-Aliskerin (Rasilez)Diuretics (“Water Pills”)-Furosemide (Lasix) -Indapamide (Lozide)-Hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) -Chlorthalidone-Spironolactone (Aldactone)You can restart your medications again as soon as you feel better.If your illness requires holding these medications for over a week, contact your MD.
16 Gout is a chronic and progressive disease. The progression of gout can be divided into 4 stages: asymptomatic hyperuricemia, acute flares, intercritical/ between flare periods, and advanced gout.About 5–8% of the United States population has hyperuricemia with no symptoms. This period lasts anywhere from months to lifetime. During this period, urate crystal deposition can occur. Lifestyle modification, but no therapeutic treatment is usually recommended.1,2For up to half a million patients, acute gout develops as acute flares caused by phagocytosis of MSU crystals. The acute flares lasts for hour to days and subside to a painless intercritical period. the estimated flare recurrence rate is 60% within 1 year, 78% within 2 years, and 84% within 3 years. Less than 10% will not have a recurrence over a 10-year period.3 As the disease progresses, the frequency of gout increases, and pain-free intercritical periods shorten. The acute gout flare phase lasts a decade.2Left untreated or suboptimally treated, up to Canadians progress to chronic or advanced gout. There is no pain-free intercritical periods.1References:Becker MA, Jolly M. Clinical gout and the pathogenesis of hyperuricemia. In: Koopman WJ, et al, eds. Arthritis and Allied Conditions. 15th ed.

17 The Normative Aging Study evaluated serum uric acid levels of 2,046 healthy and asymptomatic men over 14.9 years, while monitoring for the first episodes of gouty arthritisThe incidence rate of gouty arthritis was (in addition to slide information):Annual incidence: 0.1% in patients with sUA < 420 µmol/LAnnual incidence: 0.5% in patients with sUA 420–540 µmol/LAnnual Incidence: 4.9% in patients with sUA ≥ 540 µmol/L5-year cumulative incidence: 22% in patients with sUA ≥ 540 µmol/LAcronyms: sUA = serum uric acidReference:Campion EW, et al.

18 Pathophysiology of Gout: Acute Flares Common SitesFrequency:Big toe %Ankle/foot 50%Knee %Finger %Elbow/wrist 10%>1 site simult.11%The initial gout attack often occurs with explosive suddenness.Pain frequently begins in the middle of the night or early morning. Many patients will describe awakening with pain in the foot that is so intense that they are unable to support their own weight. This regularly interrupts sleep, prevents walking, and interferes with daily activities. Untreated, the initial attack will usually resolve in 3 to 14 days. Subsequent attacks tend to last longer and may involve more joints.1,2Gout can present in many areas and initial attacks do not necessarily occur in the first metatarsophalangeal joint of the great toeThe rapid onset of intense pain and tenderness, swelling, and shiny erythema associated with the acute flare is characteristic of gout. It is at this stage that gout may first be diagnosed1,2Acute gout is more likely to occur during an infectious process or other illnesses, hospitalisation and trauma3The lower extremities are believed to be more susceptible to gout attacks possibly because of their lower body temperature3It is unknown why gout attacks often strike in the middle of the nightMultiple small joints of the hands may be involved. Flares involving multiple joints in the upper extremities are a more common feature in early gout in women than in men.4As disease progresses, flares tend to ascend from lower extremities up3References:Becker MA, Jolly M.

19 sUA Levels as a Diagnostic Marker sUA levels may be normal ~50% of the time during a flareNormal sUA at the time of a flare does not rule out a gout diagnosis!!!Measure sUA after a flare resolved(may take up to 2 weeks)Laboratories often report hyperuricemia based on population normssUA levels are often normal during a flare, so measurements should be made at least 2 weeks post flareIt is important to note that patients with elevated sUA may not have acute gout flares and that patients with acute flares may not have elevated sUA. A fall in sUA level usually precedes the acute attack. This fall encourage tophus dissolutionIn the Urano study, sUA levels during the acute attack were normal in 49% of patients. The mean levels of sUA in these patients during the acute gout attack (7.5 ± 1.4 mg/dL or 450 μmol/L) were significantly lower than those in the intercritical phase (8.5 ± 0.9 mg/dL or 510 μmol/L ); p<0.0001)Clinical laboratories often define hyperuricemia as above the normal sUA range based on population norms, which can range up to μmol/L , where clinically significant hyperuricemia is an sUA >360 μmol/LIn physiologic terms, any level above 360 μmol/L is hyperuricemia, since it exceeds the soluble concentration of MSU in body fluidReferences:Urano W, et al.

20 Risk Factors and Associated Comorbidities HypertensionCardiovascular diseaseChronic kidney diseaseDiabetes mellitusDyslipidemiaMetabolic syndromeLifestyleObesity (high BMI)Diet rich in meat and seafoodHigh alcohol intakeFrequent consumption of high-fructose corn syrupMedicationsThiazide diureticsLow-dose aspirinCyclosporineNicotinic acidLevodopaDemographic FactorsAdvanced ageMalePostmenopause in womenLink between gout and higher risk of death from all causes including CVDHyperuricemia is a metabolic disorder that is associated with many comorbidities and risk factorsComorbidities: Many comorbidities have been linked to hyperuricemia and gout.1Studies are now clearly demonstrating the risk of high sUA and cardiovascular risk. Evidence is growing that hyperuricemia increases the risk of cardiovascular disease independent of traditional cardiovascular disease risks.1A systematic review and meta-analysis including 26 studies and over adults found that hyperuricemia was associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease incidence and mortality. For each 60 µmol/l increase in uric acid level, the pooled multivariate RR for CHD mortality was (95% CI ). Interestingly, this review found a more pronounced risk for CHD mortality in women than men with hyperuricemia.1Among middle-aged men, a diagnosis of gout with high sUA imparts significant independent CVD mortality risk. A 17-year follow-up of 9,105 mean aged 41–63 with above average CVD risk in MRFIT study. Unadjusted CVD death was 10.3/1000 person-years in patients with gout, a 30% increase compared to gout-free patients.2Lifestyle: large-scale studies have clearly demonstrated the relationship between lifestyle factors, hyperuricemia, and gout.3Key dietary risk factors for hyperuricemia and gout include: meat, seafood, beer, liquor, adiposity, weight gain, hypertension and diuretic use.Other putative risk factors, such as protein and purine-rich vegetables were exonerated, and interestingly a potential protective effect of dairy products was identified.A small study found that consumption of skim milk led to a 10% reduction in serum urate concentrations, while soy milk consumption led to a 10% increase in serum urate concentrations likely related to its high purine content.4Renal impairment: Many patients with gout are renally impaired and have reduced urate excretion based on age and vascular impairment due to hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and diabetes.Medications: The medications listed on this slide may increase the risk of gout by reducing net renal urate excretion5ReferencesChoi HK, et al.

21 Resolve the Acute Flare Rapidly Rapidly initiate a sufficient dose of anti-inflammatory therapyNSAIDsColchicineCorticosteroids (IA/PO/IV/IM)Consider drug limitations due to comorbiditiesEvaluate NSAIDS gastropathy riskRemember: anti-inflammatory agents do not treat the underlying cause of the diseaseBefore the chronic disease can be managed, the acute attack must first be treated with the appropriate anti-inflammatory drugPharmacotherapy for acute gout includes NSAIDs such as naproxen, celecoxib, flurbiprofen, indomethacin, and sulindac, corticosteroids such as prednisone, intra-articular triamcinolone or intra-muscular deposteroids and colchicine.Oral colchicine and/or NSAIDs are first line agents for systemic treatment of acute gout. In the absence of contraindications an NSAID is a convenient and well accepted option. (EULAR recommendation)It is important to maintain treatment for an adequate duration.References:Zhang W, et al.

22 Colchicine Effective but limited by adverse effects (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea)Clearance of colchicine is reduced in patients with CKD, increasing the risk of neuromyopathy and bone marrow supporssionAcute flare in CKD:Usual dose is 0.6 mg TID for 6 dosesReduce to 0.6 mg daily in CKD 3-5Prophylaxis:eGFR mL/min: 0.6 mg BIDeGFR mL/min: 0.6 mg once dailyeGFR mL/min: 0.6 mg every 2 dayseGFR <15 mL/min: not recommended
23 ULT = urate-lowering therapy; Gout Flares during Urate Lowering Therapy Effect of Concomitant Anti-Inflammatory ProphylaxisAnti-inflammatory prophylactic therapy is not a chronic treatment; its use is recommended for up to 6 months. It is only needed to prevent mobilization flares upon the initiation of urate-lowering therapy while sUA levels are normalizingAs urate-lowering therapy reduces the uric acid pool, urate crystals become mobile and shedding (breakdown) occurs. Mobilization and shedding causes phagocytosis to recur and therefore patient experiences flare.Mobilization flares can be indicative of an effective response to urate-lowering therapy, however, their occurrence may reduce patient compliance with the medication regimenIn this study, colchicine administration during initiation of allopurinol for chronic gouty arthritis reduced the frequency and/or severity of mobilization flares, as measured on a visual analog scale (VAS)Subjects treated with colchicine experienced fewer total flares (0.52 vs. 2.91, P =.008), fewer flares from 0 to 3 months (0.57 vs. 1.91, P =.022), fewer flares from 3-6 months (0 vs. 1.05, P =.033), less severe flares (3.64 vs. 5.08, P=.018), and fewer recurrent gout flares (P=.001)Treating patients with colchicine during initiation of allopurinol therapy for 6 months was supported by these dataAcronyms: ULT = urate-lowering therapy; BID = twice dailyReference:Borstad GC, et al.

24 Indomethacin/NSAIDsRenal impairment: NSAID use may compromise existing renal functionPatients with impaired renal function, especially those taking diuretics, and ACE-i/ARB/DRI, are at greater risk of renal toxicity.Hyperkalemia
25 NSAIDSHead-to-head comparisons have shown that NSAID efficacy/benefits in acute gout are similar, with no evidence for individual superiority.NSAID choice should be made dependent on a patient’s:concurrent medicationcomorbiditiesprior tolerabilityNSAIDs should be used with caution and even avoided in patients with peptic ulcer disease, gastritis, renal insufficiency, heart failure, liver failure, and in those receiving anticoagulation therapy.To minimize GI toxicity, NSAIDs can be co-administered with GI protectors, such as proton pump inhibitors, or COX-2 selective inhibitors can be used.It is important to maintain treatment for an adequate duration.References:Zhang W, et al.

26 PrednisonePrednisone 30 to 50 mg daily for 3-5, no taper needed but may rebound – so for severe attacks may taper over 10 to 14 daysUsually add colchicine to prevent reboundMore potent than NSAIDs
27 Just because clinically evident MSU deposits are undetectable does not mean that they are not present1Recurrent Flares5In a 2009 study, Lee et al enrolled gout patients from arthritis clinics, primary care centers, and healthcare systems in 3 major cities (n=371) to assess health-related quality of life using Short Form-36Of the patients who reported a gout diagnosis (n=298), nearly half of the patients (n=147) reported at least 3 gout flares during the past yearAbout two-thirds (n=195) reported taking anti-gout medication (allopurinol, colchicine, or both). Of those on anti-gout medication, >80% (n=159) were taking allopurinol alone or with colchicineTophi6More than a quarter of chronic gout patients may have tophi, which can lead to joint erosion and damage. Tophi are more common in longstanding disease and with sUA levels exceeding 540 µmol/L. Tophi should be considered markers of more severe disease. Patients with tophi should consequently be more aggressively treated. Patients with recurrent attacks or severe, long standing or polyarticular attacks should have radiographs of affected regions to disclose damage associated with MSU deposit although not clinically evident on physical examination.References:Yu JS, et al.

29 Patients should consider lifestyle and dietary changes to reduce their sUA, but this approach is unlikely to reduce sUA levels to a target of <360 µmol/L1Diet Items that raise sUA2Alcohol: The effect of individual alcoholic beverages on sUA levels varies: Beer and spirits confers a larger increase than wine , whereas moderate wine drinking does not increase sUA levelsSurf’N Turf: Higher levels of meat and seafood consumption are associated with higher levels of sUA due to their high purine contentFructose: Soft-drinks or food items high in fructose are associated with high levels of sUA as they increase uric acid production.Diet/Lifestyle Adjustments that lower sUA2Physical activity and weight reduction. Weight loss reduces uric acid levels. Physical activity improves cardiovascular outcomesMilk: milk and dairy products increases urinary urate excretion (uricosuric effect).Vegetables/nuts/legumes: Even purine rich vegetables do not increase the risk of gout and all offer excellent health benefits.Coffee: Caffeine is an xanthine and likely exerts its protective effect by through inhibition of xanthine oxidase. Moderate coffee drinking (<4 cups per day) may help reduce sUA.Vitamin C: Vitamin C supplements have been found to reduce serum uric acid levels and the future risk of gout in clinical trials.References:Emmerson BT.

Theses benefits include:Reduced recurrence of acute flares1-3Depletion of crystals from joints2,4Reduction in tophus size and recurrence of tophi1,2,5The study on the left retrospectively examined 267 patients with gout over 3 years. The graph above shows the relationship between the average serum urate concentration and the incidence of acute gouty arthritis more than 1 year after each patient’s first visit. Among the 81 patients in the study whose average serum urate concentrations were < 360 µmol/L, 86% had no recurrent gouty attacks during the observation period.3The study on the right involves 63 patients with tophaceous, crippling gout. Patients, as part of clinical practice in Europe, were given allopurinol), benzbromarone (uriscouric agent not available in United States) or a combination. Mean time to disappearance of tophi was 20.8 months (range 6–64 months). The lower the serum urate, the faster was the disappearance of tophi.5Dotted lines on both graphs depict goal of urate-lowering to 360 µmol/L.References:Becker MA, et al.

Treatment of Hypertension in Patients with Renovascular Disease Does not imply specific treatment choiceRenovascular diseaseCaution in the use of ACEI or ARB in bilateral renal artery stenosis or unilateral disease with solitary kidneyClose follow-up and intervention (angioplasty and stenting or surgery) should be considered for patients with: uncontrolled hypertension despite therapy with three or more drugs, or deteriorating renal function, or bilateral atherosclerotic renal artery lesions (or tight atherosclerotic stenosis in a single kidney), or recurrent episodes of flash pulmonary edema.40
41 The ups and downs of BP targets in CKD 1999: ADDED new recommendation lowering BP targets in CKD– MDRDFor patients with proteinuria that is greater than 1 g/day, target blood pressure is lower than 125/75 mm Hg (MAP 92) (GRADE C)2006: REMOVED recommendation – REIN-2. Target of 130/80 still supported based on AASK, MDRD1999 added new recommendation based on findings from MDRD suggesting that patients with MAP less than 92 and more than 1g per day of proteinuria.CHEP panel concluded that the AASK followup data was methodologically suspect based on their switch of primary outcomes from that used in the original study2010- revisiting the AASK followup data: little support for lower targets except (maybe) for those with proteinuria….Triggering revisiting of overall recommendation41

45 3 RCTs Designed to Address Whether Anemia Correction in CKD May Improve CV Morbidity and Mortality CREATE (Cardiovascular risk Reduction by Early Anemia Treatment with Epoetin beta) - CompletedDetermine the impact of early vs late anemia correction on mortality and cardiovascular morbidity in patients with CKDCHOIR (Correction of Hemoglobin and Outcomes In Renal insufficiency) – Terminated EarlyDetermine the impact of degree of anemia correction on mortality and cardiovascular morbidity in patients with CKDTREAT (Trial to Reduce Cardiovascular Events with Aranesp Therapy) - EnrollingDetermine the impact of anemia therapy (yes/no) on mortality and cardiovascular morbidity in patients with CKD and type 2 diabetes
46 ConclusionThe use of darbepoetin alfa in patients with diabetes, chronic kidney disease, and moderate anemia who were not undergoing dialysis did not reduce the risk of either of the two primary composite outcomes (either death or a cardiovascular event or death or a renal event) and was associated with an increased risk of strokeFor many persons involved in clinical decision making, this risk will outweigh the potential benefits

50 Investigation of anemia in CKD In patients with CKD and anemia ( regardless of age and CKD stage), include the following tests in initial evaluation of anemia:Complete blood count ( CBC) including Hb concentration, red cell indices, WBC count and differential and platelet countAbsolute reticulocyte countSerum ferritin levelSerum transferring saturation ( TSAT)Serum vitamin B12 and folate levels
51 Iron Studies Not Super Useful in CKD: Sensitivity and specificity of TSAT and serum ferritin (ferritin) and their combination (TSAT þ ferritin) and bone marrow iron (BM iron) to identify correctly a positive erythropoietic response (Z1- g/dl [Z10-g/l] increase in Hb [DHb]) to intravenous iron in 100 nondialysis patients with CKD (areas under the ROCs).
52 Iron Therapy in CKD Choice of FE Rx Patient TypeClinical ParametersTreatment PlanAdult CKD patients with anemia not on iron or ESA therapy- If an increase in HB concentration without ESA treatment is desired* and -TSAT is ≤30% and ferritin is ≤500µg/lWe suggest a trial of IV iron or in CKD ND patients alternatively a 1-3 month trial of oral iron therapy (2C)Adult CKD patients on ESA therapy, not receiving iron supplementation- If an increase in HB concentration** or a decrease in ESA dose is desired*** and -TSAT is ≤30% and ferritin is ≤500µg/lSelect the route of iron administration based on: The severity of iron deficiencyAvailability of venous accessResponse to prior oral iron therapySide effects with prior oral or IV iron therapyPatient complianceCost
53 We recommend using ESA therapy with great caution, if at all, in: CKD patients with active malignancy, in particular when cure is the anticipated outcome (1B)CKD patients with a history of stroke ( 1B)CKD patients with a history of malignancy (2C)
54 ESA in CKD ND Hb < 100 Hb >100 We suggest that the decision whether to initiate ESA therapy be individualized based on (2C):The rate of fall of Hb concentrationPrior response to iron therapyThe risk of needing a transfusionThe risks related to ESA therapyThe presence of symptoms attributable to anemiaWe suggest that ESA therapy not be initiated (2D)
55 ESA in CKD 5DWe suggest that ESA therapy be used to avoid having the Hb concentration fall below 90 g/l by starting ESA therapy when the hemoglobin is between g/l (2B)In general, we suggest that ESAs not be used to maintain Hb concentration above 11.5 g/dl (115 g/l) in adult patients with CKD. (2C)In all adult patients, we recommend that ESAs not be used to intentionally increase the Hb concentration above 13 g/dl (130 g/l). (1A)

71 Study OverviewIn this trial, patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease were randomly assigned to tolvaptan, a vasopressin V2- receptor antagonist, or placebo.Tolvaptan 60 to 120 mg (divided into 60 mg in the morning and 30 mg at night).Inclusion criteria included ages 18 to 50 years (mean of 40 years), estimated creatinine clearance >60 ml/min (mean 81 mL/min) and total kidney volume >750 mL (mean 1705 mL).Over 3 years, the increase in total kidney volume in the tolvaptan group was half that in the placebo group.
72 Most Common Adverse Events and Serious Adverse Events. Table 2 Most Common Adverse Events and Serious Adverse Events.Torres VE et al. N Engl J Med 2012;367:
73 ConclusionsTolvaptan, as compared with placebo, slowed the increase in total kidney volume and the decline in kidney function over a 3-year period in patients with ADPKD but was associated with a higher discontinuation rate, owing to adverse events.
