BACKGROUND The predictors of arterial stiffness across the spectrum of renal function are unclear. These predictors were investigated across a wide range of estimated glomerular filtration rates (eGFR). METHODS Carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (PWV; an index of arterial stiffness) was measured in 264 subjects with chronic kidney disease (CKD) stages 3-5 from three nephrology clinics ('lower GFR group'). PWV was also measured in 149 subjects without previously recognized CKD ('higher GFR… CONTINUE READING
