Chronic kidney disease prevalence

per 100,000 people, 1990–2017

Info Edit

    Prevalence is defined as the number of cases of a given disease in a specified population at a designated time per 100,000 people. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is defined as a permanent loss of renal function as indicated by estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). The GBD study considers five stages of CKD as defined by degree of loss of renal function or receipt of renal replacement therapy: CKD Stage III (eGFR 30-60ml/min/1.73m^2 ), CKD Stage IV (eGFR 15-30ml/min/1.73m^2 ), CKD Stage V (eGFR <15ml/min/1.73m^2 , not on renal replacement therapy), maintenance dialysis, and renal transplantation.
