Chronic Kidney Disease, CKD, is well recognized as a new silent risk factor for premature death.

Risk Factors For Kidney Disease:

  • Hypertension or High Blood Pressure.
  • Diabetes Mellitus.
  • Obesity.
  • Family history of Kidney Disease.
  • Cigarette smoking.
  • Previous stroke or a heart attack.
  • The age over 60.

Screening for kidney disease leads to early detection. Early intervention reduces the risk for progression to end-stage renal disease, ESRD, and the need for dialysis or kidney transplant.

A simple blood test, Creatinine to calculate GFR, Glomerular Filtration Rate, and a simple urine test for Albumin, will give the answer.
