Fighting the burden of chronic kidney disease by frequent albuminuria screening in risk group patients

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a severe complication in context of various civilisation diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension, and obesity. With increasing treatment cost along the progression of CKD towards end-stage renal failure (ESRF) and the need for renal replacement therapies, CKD is not only a driver of premature mortality and diminished quality of life of affected individuals, but also puts significant burden on the society and healthcare expenditures. The early detection of kidney damage through a frequent screening of risk patients could help to fight the burden of CKD. Cost-efficient routine urinalysis data could play a vital role in providing valuable information for screening, diagnosing, and monitoring of renal disorders.
