Screening for chronic kidney disease (CKD)
According to national surveys, 90% of those with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are unaware they have the condition, which means a large portion of Americans are in the dark about their kidney health. While there are risk factors for CKD, including diabetes and high blood pressure, the only way to detect CKD and measure overall kidney function is through screening for creatinine and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). If caught early, progression of kidney disease can be prevented, alleviating the health and financial burdens of CKD on both individuals and organizations.
