Chronic Kidney Disease
Different health behavior patterns were associated with specific clinical outcomes in patients with CKD, according to a recently published study.
“We identified three similar patterns of engagement in health behaviors among young and older adults with CKD that varied in association with clinical outcomes,” Sarah J. Schrauben, MD, of the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the Perelman School of Medicine and the division of renal, electrolyte and hypertension at the University of Pennsylvania, and colleagues wrote. “In both age groups, individuals with less healthy behavior patterns had an increased hazard of poor clinical outcomes, but differed depending on diabetes status. Identification of the health behavior patterns and barriers to health behavior engagement may help target high-risk groups for strategies to increase participation in health behaviors.”
