2. Urinary Protein Excretion Increases Risk of Cognitive Impairment Simple Urine Tests Could Identify Individuals at Risk

Two characteristics of kidney diseaseexcreting protein in the urine (albuminuria) and low kidney functionincrease individuals' risk of becoming confused and forgetful. To see whether these two characteristics are related or independent in their effects on cognitive decline, Manjula Kurella Tamura, MD (Stanford University) and her colleagues studied clinical data from 19,399 individuals participating in the Renal Reasons for Geographic and Racial Differences in Stroke (REGARDS) study. A total of 1,184 participants (6.1%) developed cognitive impairment over an average follow-up of 3.8 years. Individuals with albuminuria were 1.31-1.57 times more likely to develop cognitive impairment compared to individuals without albuminuria. This association was strongest for individuals with normal kidney function (eGFR ≥60 ml/min/1.73m2) and attenuated among individuals with low levels of kidney function. Conversely, low kidney function (eGFR <60 ml/min/1.73m2) was associated with a higher risk for developing cognitive impairment only among individuals without albuminuria. Surprisingly, individuals with albuminuria and normal kidney function had a higher probability for developing cognitive impairment as compared to individuals with moderate reductions in kidney function (eGFR 45-59 ml/min/1.73m2) in the absence of albuminuria. The findings indicate that the presence of protein in the urine, even in small amounts, could be a warning sign that a patient may later have difficulty thinking clearly. "The results are important because albuminuria is easily measured and potentially modifiable. Incorporating information about albuminuria along with kidney function should help clinicians identify patien
