Approximately 11% of U.S. adults have CKD. The condition is usually asymptomatic until its advanced stages. Most cases of CKD are associated with diabetes or hypertension. Chronic kidney disease is defined as decreased kidney function or kidney damage that persists for at least 3 months. Tests often suggested for screening that are feasible in primary care include testing the urine for protein (microalbuminuria or macroalbuminuria) and testing the blood for serum creatinine to estimate the glomerular filtration rate (eGFR).This measure assesses the number of diabetic patients who have had an eGFR test annually.
