Introduction. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a major and growing challenge for health care systems. The prevalence rates of CKD appear to be increasing globally [1, 2] and are likely to increase further as a consequence of ageing populations and increased prevalence of Type II diabetes studies indicate that 6–% of adults in England have Stages 3–5 CKD [3–5].Cited by: If you have problems viewing PDF files, download the latest version of Adobe Reader.

They are responsible for premature death and exact a high economic price. The rate of decline in kidney function depends somewhat on the underlying disorder causing chronic kidney disease and on how well the disorder is controlled.
For example, diabetes and high blood pressure, particularly if poorly controlled, cause kidney function to decline more rapidly.

Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is the most common of all the hereditary cystic kidney diseases, with an incidence oftolive births.
Studies show that 10% of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients treated with hemodialysis in Europe and the U.S. were initially diagnosed and treated for ADPKD. Abstract. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a growing global issue, currently affecting approximately 10% of the population.
Optimal care of these patients must encompass their complex medical issues, aiming not only to delay progression of disease but also to manage symptoms and complications of their CKD and comorbidities, facilitate timely and smooth transition to renal replacement therapy.

KDIGO (Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes) recently has completed development of a series of new clinical practice guidelines that cover a broad range of topics, including acute kidney injury (AKI), glomerulonephritis, hypertension, lipids, anemia, and chronic kidney disease (CKD).1 Guideline development is “global,” but implementation is “local,” so it is common for national Cited by:.
