- Factors associated with incidence of acute kidney injury: a Japanese regional population-based cohort study, the Shizuoka study
- Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a globally critical issue. Most studies about AKI have been conducted in limited settings on perioperative or critically ill patients. We conducted a population-based cohort study using the Shizuoka Kokuho Database.
We included subjects with records of health checkup results. The factors associated with AKI and the incidence of AKI in the general Japanese population are indicated. This study generates the hypothesis that statins and physical activity habits are novel protective factors for AKI.
