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.

    Some suggest race-specific cutpoints for kidney measures to define and stage chronic kidney disease (CKD), but evidence for race-specific clinical impact is limited. To address this issue, we compared hazard ratios of estimated glomerular filtration rates (eGFR) and albuminuria across races...
