Based on personal experience, do you think CKD prevalence in the U.S. has increased over the past five years?
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.
