  • Mucocutaneous Manifestations in Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease: A Cross-sectional Study. [Journal Article]
  • IDIndian Dermatol Online J 2018 Jan-Feb; 9(1):20-26
  • Rashpa RS, Mahajan VK, … Sharma V
  • CONCLUSIONS: Xerosis, pruritus, skin pallor/pigmentary changes, nail pallor, absent lunula, nail discoloration, sparse hairs, coated tongue, xerostomia, macroglossia, and infections were the most common mucocutaneous manifestations in the studied patients irrespective of hemodialysis status. Cold and dry climates might be additional aggravators for xerosis/pruritus. Lifelong follow-up may be needed to reduce the morbidity associated with CKD/hemodialysis specific dermatoses appearing over a period.
  • A systematic review of the effects of acupuncture on xerostomia and hyposalivation. [Journal Article]
  • BCBMC Complement Altern Med 2018 Feb 13; 18(1):57
  • Assy Z, Brand HS
  • CONCLUSIONS: Insufficient evidence is available to conclude whether acupuncture is an evidence-based treatment option for xerostomia/hyposalivation. Further well-designed, larger, double blinded trials are required to determine the potential benefit of acupuncture. Sample size calculations should be performed before before initiating these studies.
