dc.description.abstractMany people at risk for chronic kidney disease (CKD) do not recognize risk factors or have awareness of modifiable lifestyle changes that could prevent or slow the progression of CKD. Chronic kidney disease is a serious and irreversible condition that requires lifelong treatment of dialysis. This treatment can create barriers in everyday life and lower overall life expectancy. The purpose of this evidence based practice brief is to determine if free yearly urine albumin to creatinine ratio (uACR) tests at screening and preventive events can reduce progression of CKD by helping with early diagnosis in those with risk factors. The uACR test is one method used to measure the functionality of the kidneys which is indicative of CKD, as decreased kidney function correlates with further progression. The results of this research may reduce the rates of CKD progression by screening more people with CKD risk factors. Offering this resource gives the opportunity to diagnose and treat the disease before dialysis is required, potentially slowing its progression and reducing the need for dialysis.
