Limitations of IndicatorThe use of an ICD-9-CM or ICD-10-CM diagnosis code as a measure of prevalence, will underestimate the level of chronic kidney disease in the general population.
Analytical ConsiderationsIn published literature, CKD is diagnosed by ICD-9-CM or ICD-10-CM codes in alternate ways (one outpatient, two or more outpatients or one inpatient claim). Care must be taken in comparisons.
