Reporting from Denmark: Risk for Rapid Progression Explored in Patients With CKD Stage G3

Individuals with incident chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage G3 have a 14.6 percent three-year risk for rapid progression, according to a study recently published in Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation.

Anne H.S. Vestergaard, M.D., Ph.D., from Aarhus University in Denmark, and colleagues conducted a nationwide, population-based cohort study to examine the risk for rapid progression, kidney failure, hospitalization, and death among adults with incident CKD stage G3 in 2017 to 2020. Risk markers were examined by constructing a heat map showing the risk for rapid progression based on predefined markers.
