KDIGO clinical practice guidelines for the management of blood pressure in chronic kidney disease
The Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) 2021 clinical practice guideline for the management of blood pressure in chronic kidney disease (CKD) represents an update to the 2012 KDIGO guideline. The scope includes topics such as optimal blood pressure targets, lifestyle interventions, and antihypertensive therapies in CKD patients not receiving dialysis, including special populations such as kidney transplant recipients and children.
The goal of the guideline is to serve as a useful resource for clinicians and patients by providing actionable recommendations with useful infographics based on a formal systematic review.
The guideline provides a chapter dedicated to proper blood pressure measurement, plus states recommendations for treatment of high blood pressure in CKD according to albumin-creatinine ratio (ACR) levels, which can be obtained via ACR point-of-care testing. Specifically, it provides recommendations for treatment initiation in this patient group, with renin-angiotensin-system inhibitors (RASI), where moderate to severe albuminuria is present.

The Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KIDGO) 2022 clinical practice guidelines are based on a systematic review of evidence and aim to assist health care professionals with their decision making for people with diabetes and chronic kidney disease (CKD). The authors highlight that by 2045, 784 million people are estimated to have diabetes globally, of whom ≥40% will develop CKD, potentially leading to kidney failure requiring dialysis or ...

The objective of this longitudinal cohort study was to determine the prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and associated risk factors in a rural South African population. The authors note that infectious and non-communicable disease are a substantial risk for CKD in Africa, but that heterogeneity in assessment and diagnostic criteria hamper the interpretation of prevalence.

The objective of this cross-sectional, primary care analysis in adults with chronic kidney disease (CKD) was to investigate the association between albuminuria testing and the likelihood of receiving nephrology care. The authors note that measurement of both estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and albuminuria (urine albumin-creatinine ratio) are necessary for effective risk stratification for CKD, but that albuminuria testing remains wide...
