According to a study published in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology, patients with chronic kidney disease spend a longer period of time in earlier stages of the disease than in later stages and the amount of time varies with risk factors.
“This study highlights the large variations in time spent in different stages of [chronic kidney disease] CKD based on the presence (or absence) of a variety of risk factors, and the potential advantages of thinking about progression of kidney disease using a time-based approach that might be easier for patients to understand and motivate better compliance with therapy if appropriate,” Elaine Ku, MD, co-author of the study from the University of California, told Healio Nephrology.
