Factors That Impact Potential Benefit of Screening Adults for CKD Stages 1–3

Factors that impact the potential benefit of screening adults for chronic kidney disease (CKD) stages 1–3 include: (1) whether undiagnosed CKD is sufficiently prevalent in the population overall or in certain high-risk groups; (2) whether CKD is associated with significant adverse health consequences and/or health care costs; (3) whether CKD is accurately diagnosable while asymptomatic; (4) whether there are valid and reliable screening tests for CKD that are acceptable to patients and available in primary care settings; and (5) whether there are treatments for patients with CKD that improve clinically important health outcomes. Several organizations have made recommendations regarding screening for CKD.
