Researchers predict that chronic kidney disease (CKD) will increase substantially in prevalence in the United States in large part because of a growing problem with obesity.

In 2009-2010, 35.9% of adults aged 20 years and older were obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Another 33.3% are overweight but not obese.
