ISN-H4KH Research Abstracts Published in Kidney International Reports

In 2018, Sandra Wagner (France), Angie Aguilar-Gonzalez (Guatemala), and Amarasiri de Silva (Sri Lanka/USA) received ISN-H4KH (Hydration for Kidney Health) Grants for their respective projects.

All three recipients had their abstracts accepted for presentation at WCN’20 and, consequently, published in Kidney International Reports.

Sandra Wagner et al. investigated the association between Uosm and eGFR decline; and the risk for end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) in patients with moderate or advanced CKD.

Angie Aguilar-Gonzalez et al. evaluated the fluid intake in healthy Guatemalan children and adolescents; considering volumes and types of fluid and timing of consumption in an area of high prevalence of kidney disease of unknown cause.

Amarasiri de Silva examined whether the prevalence and progression of CKDu in patients were reduced as a result of introducing reverse osmosis (RO) water as an alternative form of drinking water and how affected people in the region perceived the changes brought about by the new source of drinking water.
