2 Kidney Early Evaluation Program TM

3 10 Year Anniversary

4 KEEP Objectives KEEP Objectives Identify those at risk for CKD using inclusion criteria: Hypertension and/or Diabetes or family history of HTN, DM or CKD in first order relatives. Encourage participants at risk to seek further medical evaluation. Develop a referral network, such as free health clinics, for the uninsured identified as being at risk for CKD. Develop a referral network of specialists for patients identified as being at risk for kidney disease.

5 KEEP Objectives To empower individuals to prevent or delay the onset of CKD or renal failure through education and appropriate disease management!

6 Chronic Kidney Disease is a Public Health Problem! Rate of Kidney Disease Jumps by 30%

7 Chronic Kidney Disease is a Public Health Problem! The devastating consequences of CKD are End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), which requires dialysis or transplantation, or leads to cardiovascular disease & death.


9 CKD is a Public Health Problem Worldwide! Early screening, diagnosis, and treatment should delay or prevent ESRD. 26 Million Americans have CKD. Most dont know it. 73 Million Americans have HTN and/or DM. CKD is a worldwide public health problem.

10 KDOQI CKD Evaluation, Classification and Stratification (2002) Defined 2 independent criteria for CKD: Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) <60 ml/min per 1.73m2 for 3 months Presence of kidney damage [structural/functional/pathological abnormality; markers (i.e., albuminuria)] for 3 months Classified CKD by severity according to GFR Provided a common language for kidney disease that would: Facilitate new research Provide clinicians with a stage-specific clinical action plan Provide a framework for developing a public health approach toward resolution

11 KDOQI CKD Evaluation, Classification and Stratification (2002)

12 Concerns with KDOQI Definition and Classification (2002) New information on albuminuria and GFR and their association with mortality has become available since publication of the KDOQI CKD definition and staging. Increased recognition of limitations of the CKD definition and classification initiated debate that: Reflects changing knowledge Provides opportunities for improvement

13 Definition of CKD Identical to 2002

14 Classification of CKD It is recommended that CKD be classified by: Cause GFR category Albuminuria category Referred to as CGA Staging Represents a revision of the previous CKD guidelines, which included staging only by level of GFR

15 New Albuminuria Emphasis Most Family Physicians perform some type of office urine test. 90% perform a manual urine dipstick test. 53% perform an automated dipstick test. 58% perform an office- based urine microscopic exam. American Academy of Family Physicians. Practice Profile II Survey. November 2009

16 Criteria for CKD Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) <60 ml/min/1.73 m2 GFR is the best overall index of kidney function in health and disease. The normal GFR in young adults is approximately 125 ml/min/1.73 m2. GFR <15 ml/min/1.73 m2 is defined as kidney failure Can be detected by current estimating equations for GFR based on serum creatinine or cystatin C (estimated GFR) but not by serum creatinine or cystatin C alone Decreased eGFR can be confirmed by measured GFR, if required



19 3 Levels of Prevention in CKD Primary – Prevent the development of CKD in the population at risk with Diabetes and/or Hypertension. Secondary – Prevent the progression of CKD (loss of kidney function over time) and prevent or delay CKD complications. Tertiary – Prevent adverse outcomes in those with chronic kidney failure treated with dialysis or kidney transplantation by optimizing care. Am J Kidney Dis 2009:53:522-535

20 Conceptual Model of CKD: Continuum of Development, Progression and Complications of CKD Each Arrow is a Target for Strategies to Improve Outcomes!

21 Referral to Nephrology by CKD Stage

22 Primary Goals of CKD Care To prevent the progression of CKD to ESRD To prevent Cardiovascular Events & Death Heart Attacks Congestive Heart Failure Sudden Cardiac Death




26 Did You Know? 1 in 3 American adults is at high risk for developing kidney disease 1 in 9 American adults has kidney disease and most dont know it Early detection and treatment can slow or prevent the progression of kidney disease Kidney disease kills over 90,000 Americans every year

27 What You Will Learn Today What kidneys do Why kidneys are important to your health What kidney disease is Who is at risk Actions you can take to protect your kidneys

28 KEEP OVERVIEW KEEP is a free public health screening program. It was initiated in New York City by the National Kidney Foundation in August of 2000. Screenings were held in all areas of the US by local National Kidney Foundation divisions or affiliates. Over 180,000 people were screened as of 6/30/13. Visit for more

29 Criteria to Participate In KEEP Anyone age 18 or older with one or more of the following risk factors: History of diabetes History of high blood pressure Family history in first order relatives of diabetes, high blood pressure and/or kidney disease

30 Six Screening Stations Station One – Registration: Participant receives paperwork packet Station Two – Screening Questionnaire & Informed Consent: Filled out by a professional volunteer Station Three – Physical Measurements: Height, weight, waist circumference & blood pressure

31 Six Screening Stations Station Four – Urine & Blood Testing Station Five – Clinician Consultation: Interview with a physician, nurse practitioner or physician assistant Station Six – Screening Review: Participants receive copy of informed consent & test results

32 KEEP Screening Evaluation Medical history: DM, HTN, CVD, CKD Blood pressure Height and weight Waist circumference Body mass index (BMI) Blood glucose measurement Serum creatinine Hemoglobin

33 KEEP Screening Evaluation Albumin to Creatinine Ratio eGFR A1C for elevated glucose or self-reported diabetes Total Cholesterol: HDL, LDL, Triglycerides For eGFR<60 ml/min Calcium, Phosphorus & PTH

34 HEMOGLOBIN A1c Not affected by short-term fluctuations in blood glucose levels Reliable measurement of blood glucose concentrations over the prior 6 to 8 weeks <7% of total hemoglobin Normal > 7% is an indication of increased blood sugar levels High

35 Waist Circumference High Risk Groups Women with a waist circumference of more than 35 inches Men with a waist circumference of more than 40 inches

36 Blood Pressure Classification KEEP uses the Blood Pressure Classifications according to The 7 th National Report Guidelines on Prevention, Detection, Evaluation & Treatment of High Blood Pressure from the National Heart, Lung & Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health, referred to as JNC 7. BP ClassificationSBP mmHgDBP mmHg Normal<120and<80 Pre-hypertension120– 139 or 80–89 Stage 1 Hypertension 140–159or90–99 Stage 2 Hypertension >160or>100

37 Blood Glucose Guidelines American Diabetes Association (ADA) 2008 Criteria for the Diagnosis of Diabetes Mellitus Normal Fasting Glucose FPG <100 mg/dl Impaired Fasting Glucose FPG 100–125 mg/dl Provisional Diagnosis of Diabetes FPG >126 mg/dl (The diagnosis must be confirmed. The KEEP consultant would recommend follow-up testing & review by the participants primary care provider.)

38 Follow Up after the Screening 2 to 3 days: Participants with critical lab results are called by dedicated bilingual (Spanish/English) staff. 3 to 4 weeks: All screening results are mailed to participants and their physicians if participants wish to have their doctor receive a report. 2 to 3 months: A follow up survey is mailed out & participants will be called if the survey is not received. 12 months: Invitations are sent by mail, phone or e- mail to attend an annual screening.

54 TREATMENT Promote optimal treatment by offering education to patients, caregivers and healthcare practitioners PREVENTION Prevent CKD in at-risk population; prevent progression of early stage CKD in early stage patients AWARENESS Awareness of the kidney and kidney disease PROGRAM FOCUS: EDUCATING Primary Care Providers (PCP) Research shows that early detection and evidence-based treatment can prevent or delay the onset of chronic kidney disease and its adverse outcomes, including cardiovascular disease and kidney failure. A recent Multi-Site Cross Sectional NKF Study enrolled 460 primary care practitioners to determine the prevalence of CKD overall and by stage in patients with type 2 Diabetes within the primary care setting, based on the use of eGFR calculations and urinary protein excretion (albuminuria). Of the 9,307 patients in the study, 5036 (54.1%) had Stage 1-5 CKD based on eGFR and albuminuria; however, only 607 (12.1%) of those patients were identified as having CKD by their clinicians. Clinical practice guidelines on chronic kidney disease exist, findings from two recent studies demonstrate that a large number of PCPs are not aware of the National Kidney Foundations clinical practice guidelines for the evaluation and staging of CKD.
