A survey shows the physical and psychological distress associated with anemia due to chronic kidney disease, with 41% of patients reporting that they feel socially isolated

ADDLESTONE, England, May 23 / PRNewswire / – – More than half of the patients surveyed said that their illness determines their everyday lives

– Experts demand more understanding and better support

– Astellas Pharma Europe Ltd. today published the results of a European survey of 200 nephrologists and 203 patients with chronic kidney disease anemia. The study reveals the stress on the physical and mental health of patients caused by the disease. Over half of the patients surveyed reported that their illness determines their everyday life (57%), with 41% of the patients expressing feelings of social isolation due to their condition. Experts believe that a deeper understanding of the patient burden of chronic kidney failure anemia is needed among healthcare professionals, along with a greater focus on patient quality of life in daily routine.

Anemia is a common complication of chronic kidney disease, affecting one in five people.1 It leads to symptoms such as lack of energy, fatigue, and shortness of breath2 that can affect patients both at work and at home. The results of the survey show that the symptoms influenced the everyday life of 83% of the surveyed patients, which led to absenteeism of more than eight days per month on average. For almost half of the patients surveyed (44%), their condition meant that they had to stop working for an indefinite period of time. In addition to the work, more than two-thirds of the patients surveyed (67%) reported that they needed help around the house, which further illustrates the far-reaching effects of the anemia caused by kidney failure on the quality of life of the patients. The survey infographic provides additional insight from patients and nephrologists about the diagnosis, management, and the stress of living with anemia due to kidney disease.

Astellas appointed a team of five external experts to provide their views on the survey results. The team of experts included two senior nephrology professors (United Kingdom and Spain), a specialist renal nurse (United Kingdom), the president of a European association of renal nurses and the president of a national patient group (Spain). A detailed overview of the survey results and the assessments of the expert team can be found in the comprehensive survey report. The following key observations and actions were identified by the team of experts for future condition management:

“There is a clear need for a better understanding of what aspects of a patient’s condition affect their quality of life.” Jennifer Ann Williams, Specialized Kidney Nurse, Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board, UK.

“It’s no surprise that patients experience social isolation because of their condition. They’re tired and don’t want to go out or meet friends. They just don’t want to do anything.” Kidney Diseases (ALCER), Spain.

“It is important to consider the individual characteristics of the patient when it comes to the effects of anemia on everyday life.” Professor José Portolés Pérez, nephrologist at the University Hospital Puerta de Hierro de Majadahonda, Spain.

Together, these findings from patients, nephrologists and experts show that nephrologists need a better understanding of the psychological and physical stress on patients caused by anemia in renal insufficiency and that the patient’s quality of life needs to be given greater consideration in the treatment of the disease.

“At Astellas, tomorrow’s change is the ethos that guides everything we do. We recognize that addressing unmet needs is often best achieved in collaboration with others. This survey is just one of the initiatives we are engaged in with patient groups and professional organizations work to provide value to people with chronic kidney disease, their loved ones and the healthcare professionals who treat their condition. ” Gino Ciotti, Medical Director for Medical Affairs, Nephrology, Astellas.

About chronic kidney disease and anemia

Renal insufficiency is characterized by a progressive loss of kidney function, which is caused by damage to the kidneys as a result of symptoms such as high blood pressure, diabetes or immune-regulated inflammatory conditions.3 One in ten people worldwide lives with chronic kidney disease.4 In Europe, one in eight people lives with it chronic kidney disease.4 According to data from the United Kingdom, every fifth patient with chronic kidney disease has anemia. In people with the most severe kidney disease (stage 5 kidney failure), this rate increases to every second patient.1 Globally, it is forecast that chronic kidney disease will be the fifth leading cause of premature death by 2040.5 It is a critical health problem worldwide, the one brings great and growing unmet medical needs with it.

Anemia is a common complication of chronic kidney failure, 6 resulting from the failure of the kidneys to produce erythropoietin, decreased oxygen uptake, and increased hepzidine and iron deficiency due to chronic inflammation. This is related to significant morbidity and mortality in both dialysis and non-dialysis patients, increasing in both incidence and severity as kidney disease progresses.7 Anemia in kidney disease increases the risk of adverse effects on the cardiovascular system, deteriorating kidney outcome and can have a negative impact on patients’ quality of life.8-10

PiS without a majority. What about Solidarna Polska and the Understanding?

There is a crisis in the ruling coalition. A conflict between PiS and Solidarna Polska broke out after the vote on the amendment to the Animal Protection Act. Ziobro’s deputies voted “against” the so-called Five for animals, and on Friday, there was a series of statements by activists from both parties, which indicate that the coalition negotiations have been broken. The decision on the future of the ZP will probably be made today, at a meeting of the PiS leadership.

Meanwhile, as the new IBRiS poll for “Rp” shows, if the coalition breaks up and early elections are held, Solidarna Polska and the Agreement by Jarosław Gowin have no chance of getting into the Sejm on their own.

Without Agreement and SP, with a minority government

The survey was carried out on Saturday, September 19, so immediately after the crisis in the ruling coalition.

So how would the Poles vote? Law and Justice would invariably get the most votes – 36 percent. votes, and Solidarna Polska and the Agreement would receive 1.4 percent each. votes.

If the elections were held next Sunday, the Civic Coalition could count on 21.8 percent. votes, and the next place would be taken by Szymon Hołownia’s movement – 9.2 percent. votes.

Next were the Confederation (8.2% of the vote) and the Left (6.1% of the vote) and below the election threshold – the Polish Coalition (3.4% of the vote).

In the study, as much as 12.5 percent. the respondents did not know who they would like to vote for.

Survey shows: Corona means turning away from cash – Coronavirus Vienna


57 percent still prefer bills and coins when paying.
© pixabay.com (Subject)

A survey has shown that the corona crisis is accelerating the move away from cash in Europe. Even in Austria – although they are very dependent on cash.

The Coronakrise has accelerated the move away from cash in Europe, according to an online survey by management consultant PwC Strategy &. Even Austrians, who are very fond of cash, pull out their cards a little more often. Compared to citizens from nine other countries examined, however, Austrians are still the biggest fans of notes and coins.

57 percent of Austrians prefer cash when shopping

57 percent of Austrians still prefer cash when shopping and paying for services, closely followed by Germans (56 percent). In 2018 it was 61 percent in both countries. In Europe this figure is only 36 percent, after 43 percent two years earlier. At the other end of the scale is Sweden, where at the time of the survey in August and September 2020 only 15 percent of those surveyed said cash was their favorite means of payment. In the Netherlands and France, only about one in five people prefer cash.

While 44 percent of the total of 3,500 survey participants from 12 countries said that as a result of the crisis they now paid more often by card, 15 percent do exactly the opposite: they pay more often in cash. 9 percent use their cell phone more often to pay.

Reasons to love cash have changed

According to this year’s survey, more people in Austria, 27 percent, prefer to pay in cash in order to keep an eye on their expenses (2018: 24 percent). Otherwise, the reasons for the love of cash in Austria have changed, according to PwC Strategy & in the study published on Monday. Only 35 percent of Austrians currently say that cash is often the only accepted payment method; two years ago it was 41 percent. Convenience reasons (23 after 32 percent) and security concerns (18 after 21 percent) are also no longer mentioned as often as reasons for paying in cash.

Poll: Fathers consider strong dads to be those who know how to give and receive love – Relationships – Egoiste

The results of the survey were presented by the representatives of the organization at the annual meeting of fathers on Friday.

81% of dads have indicated that a strong dad is one who knows how to give and receive love, but a fifth of fathers admit that they do not know how to show love, Inga Akmentiņa-Smildziņa, the head of “Mammamuntetiem.lv”, shared the results of the survey.

The survey revealed that the biggest challenges in raising children are the lack of time to be quality with the child, lack of patience and restraint, mother and father’s different views on raising children, as well as lack of knowledge about the child’s developmental stages and upbringing.

“I show my girls that a bearded dad also tears a tear. And they can come to me, get caught. It’s invaluable. Don’t be afraid to show love – children see that dad still loves his beautiful wife and loves after many years. their children, “said Armands Samson, the father of four daughters.

Adolescent psychotherapist Nils Sakss Konstantinovs emphasized that it is very important to show physical love to sons as well. “Brain research has shown that physical contact is important for boys. For them, the speech center develops more slowly than for girls, and physical contact – envy of dad and mom – helps boys to express their emotions in a healthy way, reduce tension,” explained the psychotherapist.

Ex-president, dad and grandfather Valdis Zatlers pointed out that it is very important to embrace a son, not just a daughter. “It’s often taboo in our culture, but it’s very, very good in family relationships. I’ve also realized that patience and the ability to listen are key. It’s not that easy, but it can be learned. It doesn’t matter what happens to the child. During the day, it ‘s important what happens when he’ s having a hard time, “said Zatlers.

At the meeting, there was a wide-ranging discussion about the challenges of modern fathers and what a strong dad is. Actor Ģirts Liuziniks revealed that he already felt like a father at a time when they and their wife were still expecting a child. He was a great support to his wife and was present at the birth of her child. “I already felt like a dad, not waiting for the baby to be born, and only then would I become a dad,” Liuziniks added.

“It’s a fundamental feeling when you’re with friends in the woods at night and Dad was the one who took you home. When it’s bad, Dad was the one who rushed to the rescue,” Konstantinov said.

“In anticipation of Father’s Day, we have been organizing a meeting for several years, where we invite dads and experts together to highlight various difficulties related to the father’s role and the beautiful that the father’s role can give to mothers interested in their child’s life,” said Akmentiņa-Smildziņa.

The topics and problems raised in the Fathers’ Meeting and Survey will be used by the organization to bring them to the forefront of society and the media in anticipation of Father’s Day.

Father’s Day in Latvia was set as an official holiday in 2009, and it is celebrated on the second Sunday in September. Since then, the popularization and revitalization of Father’s Day as a Latvian family tradition has been undertaken by the Latvian parents’ organization “Mammamuntetiem.lv”. In order to achieve the goal, since 2013 “Mammamuntetiem.lv” in Riga organized a Father’s Day walk along Brīvības Street and a festival throughout the day in Vērmane Garden.
