Fructose, hypertension and CKD: an update

Today, I gave grand-rounds at William Beaumont Hospital Royal Oak. I gave the fructose-uric acid lecture I gave in January of 2010.

Over the last 16 months, the science has continued to move forward without any hiccups. Additionally, data supporting direct renal toxicity of fructose and uric acid has matured. This latest version of the lecture adds a section on CKD including a summary of both randomized-controlled-trials examining allopurinol to reduce the progression of chronic kidney disease.

The lecture is available in the under the lecture tab.
