    Managing RAAS-Inhibitor-Associated Hyperkalemia in Patients with CKD – A Balancing Act

    Managing RAAS-Inhibitor-Associated Hyperkalemia in Patients with CKD – A Balancing Act

    Hyperkalemia is a common electrolyte disorder in patients with CKD that can be exacerbated by renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) inhibitors. While hyperkalemia poses potential risks to patients with CKD, the potentially negative impact of discontinuing RAAS inhibitor therapy on long-term renal and cardiovascular outcomes in CKD patients is unclear.

    The Generic Levothyroxine Conundrum

    The Generic Levothyroxine Conundrum

    Would you be willing to pay three times more for a brand-name levothyroxine product than a generic equivalent? Clinical practice guidelines recommend against switching between products.

    Level Up! An Abstinence Game for Smoking Cessation

    Level Up! An Abstinence Game for Smoking Cessation

    Smoking remains a habit for many people, even among those who are motivated to quit. Historically, most smoking cessation interventions have targeted individuals who are ready to quit smoking in the next 30 days, overlooking those who are not yet ready to quit.  Perhaps an abstinence game, Take a Break, can move people in pre-contemplation and contemplation toward quitting.
