Abstract

To assess the prospective association between objectively measured physical activity and kidney function over 4 years in people with Type 2 diabetes. Individuals (120 women and 206 men) participating in the ADDITION-Plus trial underwent assessment of sedentary time (SED-time), time spent in moderate-to-vigorous-intensity physical activity (MVPA) and total physical activity energy expenditure (PAEE) using a combined heart rate and movement sensor, and kidney function [estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), serum creatinine and urine albumin-to-creatinine ratio (ACR)] at baseline and after 4 years of follow-up. Multivariate regression was used to quantify the association between change in SED-time, MVPA and PAEE and kidney measures at four-year follow-up, adjusting for change in current smoking status, waist circumference, HbA1c , systolic blood pressure, triglycerides and medication usage. Over 4 years, there was a decline in eGFR values from 87.3 to 81.7 ml/min/1.73m(2) (P < 0.001); the prevalence of chronic kidney disease (eGFR < 60 ml/min/1.73m(2) ) increased from 6.1 to 13.2% (P < 0.001). There were small increases in serum creatinine (median: 81-84 μmol/l, P < 0.001) and urine ACR (median: 0.9-1.0 mg/mmol, P = 0.005). Increases in SED-time were associated with increases in serum creatinine after adjustment for MVPA and cardiovascular risk factors (β = 0.013, 95% CI: 0.001, 0.03). Conversely, increases in PAEE were associated with reductions in serum creatinine (β = -0.001, 95% CI: -0.003, -0.0001). Reducing time spent sedentary and increasing overall physical activity may offer intervention opportunities to improve kidney function among individuals with diabetes. (Clinical Trial Registry no.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 17. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 08 September 2016.
All research outputs
#828,087
of 12,481,881 outputs
Outputs from Diabetic Medicine
#140
of 2,373 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#22,169
of 239,264 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Diabetic Medicine
#5
of 45 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,481,881 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 93rd percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,373 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 6.1. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 94% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 239,264 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 90% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 45 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 88% of its contemporaries.
