More than 8 million US adults have CKD, the majority of whom have stage 3 CKD. More than 500,000 have end stage renal disease (ESRD). The risk of death, cardiovascular events, and hospitalization, all increase as kidney function declines. The most common cause of kidney failure in the United States is diabetes followed by high blood pressure.
