Progression of CKD
For patients with chronic kidney disease (i.e., those with estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), less than 60 mL/min/1.73m2), this calculator returns an estimated probability (expressed as a percentage or range of percentages from 0 to 100%) of having kidney failure in the next five years.
This probability may be useful for patient and provider communication, triage and management of nephrology referrals and timing of dialysis access placement and living related kidney transplant.
Two calculators are provided, one with four input variables, and one with eight input variables. Using more variables, when available, will yield a more precise estimate.
Details of risk equation development (Tangri et al, 2011) are available here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21482743.
