Air pollution can increase the risks of kidney disease

3.png

It is well known that air pollution can lead to respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, a new study shows that it may also lead to kidney damage. The study, which will be published in the magazine's Kidney disease association (JASN), calls attention to the role of air pollution in the development of kidney disease in urban areas.

Air pollution has become a serious problem in many cities in China, but its impact on individual health is unclear. The purpose of the study was to examine how airborne particles affect kidney health. A team led by Dr Fan Fan Hou (Southern Medical University, Guangzhou, China) analyzed the information of the renal biopsy of 71151 patients from 938 hospitals in 282 cities in China . These participants cover all ages.

On the whole, the possibility of developing membranous nephropathy (an immune disorder of the kidneys) ,which can lead to Renal failure, increased 13% over 11-year study, and the proportion of other major kidney conditions remained stable. The morbidity of membranous nephropathy is highest in the population areas with high levels of fine particles pollution.“

"Our main finding is that the incidence of membranous nephropathy has doubled in China over the past decades, and the study shows that the increase in prevalence is closely linked to the regional distribution of fine particulate air pollution," said Dr. Hou
