BACKGROUND Although many studies have suggested an association between higher uric acid (UA) and both development of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and faster decline in renal function in Stage I and II CKD, it is not clear whether this effect is consistent throughout higher CKD stages. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between baseline UA and renal outcomes in patients with established CKD (Stages III-V). METHODS We analysed data in the Swedish Renal Registry-Chronic… CONTINUE READING
