Answer

The See Kidney Disease (SeeKD) targeted screening project identified a high proportion of individuals with risk factors for CKD and a high prevalence of unrecognized CKD. Participants with at least one risk factor for CKD (eg, diabetes, hypertension, vascular disease, family history of kidney problems) received a point-of-care creatinine measurement. Of the 5194 participants screened, 18.8% had unrecognized CKD (estimated GFR [eGFR] < 60 ml/min/1.73 m2); 13.8% had stage 3a CKD (eGFR 45-60 ml/min/1.73 m2). [46]
