The article presents the author's views regarding a study on an association between obesity and end-stage renal disease (ESRD). The study provides evidence that risk factors for ESRD frequently overlap with those for cardiovascular disease and adds to the growing list of adverse outcomes associated with obesity. The author insists that though obesity may be linked to ESRD, however it cannot be claimed that obesity causes renal disease. Moreover, the association between body mass index and ESRD became weaker after adjustment for diabetes and hypertension at baseline.
