Glomerular diseases outcome at one yearin a tertiary care centre
Objectives: To determine outcome in primary and secondary glomerular diseases at one year follow up.
Methods: Study design is observational cohort, done in out-patient department, Dow Iinternational Medical College, DUHS. All information gathered on a proforma. All patients with dipstick positive proteinuria and clinical glomerular disease were included in study. Patients with no proteinuria were excluded so were patients with stage 5 CKD. Patients were followed for proteinuria and renal insufficiency at completion of one year follow up. Statistical analysis was done on SPSS version 16.
Result: Total number of patients who completed one year follow up was 173. Mean age of patients was 51.67+ 10.16 (range 15 to 75 years). Ninety two (53.2%), were males and 81(46.8%) were females, ratio being 1.1: 1.0. Mean weight of our patients was 67.43+14.13 Kg, (35 to 107 kg). Commonest cause of glomerular disease in our patient was diabetic nephropathy which was seen in 94.2% patients. Commonest associated problem with glomerular disease was hypertension seen in 66.5% of patients. Four out of 173 patients had stage 5 CKD at end of follow up at one year while quantitativ proteinuria remained same at one year follow up.
Conclusion: One year follow up is critical for patients with glomerular disease associated with stage 4 CKD as progression to end stage renal failure may be seen within one year in these patients.
