This module covers basic information about chronic kidney disease. We will discuss the burden of chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in the United States, kidney anatomy and function, how to identify and monitor CKD using the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and urine albumin-to-creatinine ratio (UACR), as well as Medicare's Medical Nutrition Therapy benefit. You will use an online calculator to determine eGFR using serum creatinine, gender, age and race.
