Chronic kidney disease in Korea
Ho Jun Chin, Suhnggwon Kim
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is an important problem worldwide. CKD is defined as either a glomerular filtration rate (GFR) of less than 60 mL/min/1.73 m2 body surface area (BSA) or the presence of kidney damage, most commonly assessed by the presence of albuminuria for at least three consecutive months. In Korea, the reported overall prevalence of CKD is 13.7%, and the prevalence of CKD according to stage is 2.0, 6.7, 4.8, 0.2, and 0.0% for stages 1 to 5, respectively. This review emphasizes the importance of awareness, making an early diagnosis, and an appropriate management strategy for CKD.
