Abstract

CKD is common and its prevalence may be increasing. It carries with it a substantial cardiovascular risk but the vast majority of patients will never require dialysis. The minority requiring further investigation or complex management should be promptly identified and referred to a nephrologist. The remaining patients require lifelong monitoring in primary care and careful attention to their cardiovascular risk factors.
