Importance Renin angiotensin aldosterone system inhibitors (RAASIs) benefit individuals with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Elevations in serum creatinine and potassium levels are common reasons for discontinuation of this therapy, but their incidence and risks are not well characterized in community practice. Objective To evaluate associations of increased creatinine levels, hyperkalemia, and therapy continuation with the risk of emergency department (ED) visits, hospitalizations, and… CONTINUE READING
