Abstract

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) occurs commonly in patients with cardiovascular disease. In addition, CKD is a risk factor for the development and progression of cardiovascular disease. In this advisory, we present recommendations for the detection of CKD in patients with cardiovascular disease. CKD can be reliably detected with the combined use of the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease equation to estimate glomerular filtration rate and a sensitive test to detect microalbuminuria. All patients with cardiovascular disease should be screened for evidence of kidney disease with these two determinations.
