Abstract

PURPOSE: We examined an occurrence of the lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) within the chronic kidney disease (CKD) comparatively analyzed implications with components of the CKD.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
We surveyed eighty-two CKD patients who were over than 50-year-old, micturated upward of 1,000cc a day. The check list concerned with the LUTS consists of International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS), quality of life, volume of prostate, maximal flow rate and residual urine volume and we evaluated GFR, serum creatinine, prevalence period, causative disease and diabetes. We analyzed correlations between the CKD and components of the LUTS and examined an aspect of LUTS concerned with the degree of CKD, prevalence period and diabetes. A control group composed of twenty-eight male adults who visited to the general medical examination center and they were examined by the same checklist.
RESULTS
The group of CKD is significantly worse than the control group over the whole items of LUTS beside the volume of prostate; they were on the average 57.3+/-3.8 years old, 17.1+/-2.3 of IPSS, 3.8+/-1.2 of quality of life, 12.6+/-3.2ml/sec of maximal flow rate and 38.9+/-4.3ml of residual urine, 25.9+/-3.4g of prostate in the group of CKD. Furthermore, a group of patients who had suffered from the CKD for over than 3 years and combined with diabetes is significantly worse than control group.
CONCLUSIONS
The study revealed that a number of CKD have LUTS and they seem to be influenced by prevalence period, stage and causative disease of CKD rather than the volume of prostate.
