CKD Management Guidance for Primary Care Health Professionals

These pages are to help interpret renal tests and give guidance about investigation and management of renal disease.

This local guidance is based on NICE guidelines ("Chronic kidney disease: National clinical guideline for early identification and management in adults and primary and secondary care").

Some management guidelines included are opinions of local physicians. New terms include eGFR (estimated glomerular filtration rate) and ACR (albumin creatinine ratio). Both terms will be reported with biochemical results for serum creatinine and urine protein respectively. Follow the links on the right-hand side for information and what to do..
