Identify and Manage Patients

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is best identified and treated early as part of comprehensive primary medical care. Goals of medical management are to: identify and treat, monitor, slow progression, and reduce and treat complications. Additional goals include providing patient education about CKD, diet, lifestyle, and preparation for renal replacement therapy (RRT).​​​​
