Looks into the close relationship between kidney failure and cardiovascular disease. Emphasis on the prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors based on estimated kidney function; Utilization of the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease equation to estimate the burden of reduced kidney function in the general population; Belief of the authors that there are major opportunities for the medical community to actively benefit patients with chronic kidney disease who often have multiple cardiovascular risk factors.
