Chronic Kidney Disease: Screening
The results below represent 464,032 patients with diabetes or hypertension who do not have chronic kidney disease or end-stage renal disease. Read More About This Measure
Within the past decades there has been increasing evidence that the adverse outcomes of chronic kidney disease such as kidney failure, heart disease, and premature death can be prevented or delayed. Earlier stages of chronic kidney disease can be detected through laboratory testing. Screening asymptomatic individuals at increased risk could allow earlier detection of chronic kidney disease.
