Prevalence of chronic kidney disease and decreased kidney function in the adult US population: Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.
TLDR
CKD is common and warrants improved detection and classification using standardized criteria to improve outcomes, and CCr estimates showed a steeper decline with age and were lower in non-Hispanic blacks.
The definition, classification, and prognosis of chronic kidney disease: a KDIGO Controversies Conference report.
TLDR
KDIGO has convened a workgroup to develop a global clinical practice guideline for the definition, classification, and prognosis of chronic kidney disease.
International comparison of the relationship of chronic kidney disease prevalence and ESRD risk.
TLDR
CKD prevalence in Norway was similar to that in the United States, suggesting that lower progression to ESRD rather than a smaller pool of individuals at risk accounts for the lower incidence of E SRD in Norway.
KDOQI US commentary on the 2012 KDIGO clinical practice guideline for the evaluation and management of CKD.
TLDR
A work group agreed with most of the recommendations contained in the KDIGO guidelines, particularly the recommendations regarding the definition and classification of CKD, however, there were some concerns about incorporating the cause of disease into CKD classification.
Association of kidney function with anemia: the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (1988-1994).
TLDR
Lower kidney function was associated with a lower hemoglobin level and a higher prevalence and severity of anemia below, but not above, an estimated glomerular filtration rate (GFR) of 60 mL/min per 1.73 m(2).
Multiple loci associated with indices of renal function and chronic kidney disease
TLDR
These findings provide new insights into CKD pathogenesis and underscore the importance of common genetic variants influencing renal function and disease.
Type of vascular access and survival among incident hemodialysis patients: the Choices for Healthy Outcomes in Caring for ESRD (CHOICE) Study.
TLDR
The results strongly support existing clinical practice guidelines and suggest that the use of venous catheters should be minimized to reduce the frequency of access complications and to improve patient survival, especially among male hemodialysis patients.
25-hydroxyvitamin D levels and the risk of mortality in the general population.
TLDR
The lowest quartile of 25(OH)D level (<17.8 ng/mL) is independently associated with all-cause mortality in the general population, and the adjusted models of CVD and cancer mortality revealed a higher risk, which was not statistically significant.
