The proportion of patients with volume depletion and renal adverse events, which are commonly of concern when treating heart failure, were comparable to placebo.
Though perioperative dialysis corrects biochemical abnormalities and fluid overload, it results in intravascular volume depletion. It is important that this state of volume depletion is corrected as early as possible by administration of intravenous fluids to ensure adequate perfusion of the graft which in turn will determine its survival.
Patients with an additional diagnosis of acute renal failure were significantly more likely to have at least one HAPI than patients without that diagnosis, OR = 2.6 (CI: 1.7-4.2), and similarly for patients with an additional diagnosis of volume depletion, OR = 2.5 (CI: 1.5-4.1).
Genital and urinary tracts infections, volume depletion and hypoglycaemia are of key concerns when using SGLT2 inhibitors.
As a consequence, volume depletion may occur in < 1% to 4%, lowering systolic blood pressure, which may result in postural hypotension and dizziness.
These authors conducted a protocol in hypertensive and normotensive patients using an intravenous infusion of 2 liters of normal (0.9%) saline and after sodium and volume depletion that was induced by a low sodium diet (10 Meq) and furosemide administration [5].
"Intravascular volume depletion increases the concentration of serum urate, and increased serum urate beyond the saturation threshold can result in crystallization," she said.
As in other trials of SGLT-2 inhibitors, canagliflozin significantly increased the risk of female and male genital mycotic infections (respective HR, 4.27 and 3.76) and was associated with osmotic diuresis (HR, 2.80), and volume depletion (HR, 1.44).
Then, of course, there is the issue of diuretic use: "Indeed, volume depletion, hypokalemia, hyperkalemia, metabolic acidosis, metabolic alkalosis, hypomagnesemia, hyponatremia, and hypernatremia are complications that may occur from diuretic use."
Volume depletion due to poor oral intake, emesis, and diarrhea contribute to pre-renal AKI (Kitai et al., 2015; Luciano & Brewster, 2014).
But as the disease process evolves, glucose-induced osmotic diuresis leads to volume depletion and secondary renal failure, thus impeding further glucose excretion [1, 3, 5].
Diagnoses included volume depletion, diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) (with initial concurrent metabolic and respiratory alkaloses), severe hyponatremia, hypokalemia, hypophosphatemia, mild to moderate hypocalcemia, and mild hypomagnesemia.
