Abstract

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a growing health problem in the United States. Recognition of this chronic condition is crucial to facilitate the employment of measures that can slow progression to end-stage renal disease and reduce associated disease states. Furthermore, a system to classify stages of CKD is worthwhile to permit a logical approach to therapy in these patients. We herein review and summarize clinical practice guidelines put forward by the National Kidney Foundation Working Group to aid physicians in the diagnosis and management of CKD.
