The article discusses the author's views on the treatment of stage five chronic kidney disease (CKD) in patients. It presents a study called Initiating Dialysis Early and Late (IDEAL) based on estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) in patients with CKD. A chart depicting the impacts of early and late initiation of dialysis in patients with stage five CKD is also included in the article.
