The effect of increasing age on the prognosis of non-dialysis patients with chronic kidney disease receiving stable nephrology care
Kidney International, Exclusive Author Commentary  Clinical Article

De Nicola L et al. – In older patients on nephrology care, the risk of end–stage renal disease (ESRD) prevailed over mortality even when estimated glomerular filtration rate was not severely impaired. Proteinuria increases ESRD risk, while the predictive role of other modifiable risk factors was unchanged compared with younger patients.

Findings of this work help nephrologists in recognizing which outcome is most important to the elderly CKD patients they regularly see and at identifying the potential areas of further therapeutic improvement.
