BACKGROUND Hypertension is common, and arterial pressure rhythms are impaired in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Emerging evidence suggests that consideration of excretory function together with proteinuria may provide a more holistic assessment of the extent of derangement in renal function. METHODS To evaluate the independent relationships of estimated GFR and proteinuria with the mean level of and the circadian variation in blood pressure, we evaluated 336 patients, 184 (55… CONTINUE READING
