From the USA: CKD Progression Risk Up With Increasing Albuminuria in Normal Range

For people with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and normoalbuminuria, the risk for CKD progression increases with higher levels of albuminuria, according to a study published online April 2 in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

Ashish Verma, M.B., B.S., from the Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine, and colleagues estimated the increase in the cumulative incidence of CKD progression with higher baseline levels of albuminuria among persons with CKD who had normoalbuminuria (<30 mg/g) in a multicenter prospective study. Data were included for 1,629 participants meeting criteria from the Chronic Renal Insufficiency Cohort study with CKD and a urine albumin-creatinine ratio (UACR) <30 mg/g.
