Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a worldwide public health problem. In the United States, the prevalence of end-stage renal disease is increasing, especially among patients older than 65 years. More than 20 million people in the United States are thought to have CKD, and this population consumes a disproportionate amount of health care resources. CKD is also associated with increased mortality, particularly from cardiovascular causes.
