"Our study shows that a high percentage of follow-up colonoscopies are being performed too early, resulting in use of scarce health care resources with potentially limited clinical benefit" said Thomas D Sequist MD, MPH, BWH Division of General Medicine and Primary Care, senior study author
This is an alarming result, as Prof. Carmine Zoccali, NDT Editor-in-Chief, comments: "With chronic kidney disease, a common comorbidity such as diabetes or hypertension , kidney function declines slowly, but continuously - often without any symptoms. However we now have data that shows how an early referral into nephrologic care can slow the progression of the disease and could save a patient from being dependent on dialysis for several month or even years; besides, this would save the health care systems high costs."
"Their study thus requires validation in a prospective cohort. For now, however, it provides sufficient evidence to recommend at least the continuation of statin therapy after nonamyloid ICH for at least 30 days after the initial event. Further study of this important management question is warranted."
