BACKGROUND The rate of decline in kidney function is a powerful predictor of cardiovascular risk in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Serum phosphate and increased arterial stiffness are associated with elevated cardiovascular risk in CKD and the general population. We sought to determine whether serum phosphate and markers of arterial stiffness predict progression of renal dysfunction in patients with early CKD. METHODS Two hundred and twenty-five patients with Stage II-IV CKD were… CONTINUE READING
