Abstract

Although a variety of conditions and syndromes may affect the kidneys over either chronic or acute time frames, the term “chronic kidney disease” (CKD) is used to describe a decrease in the filtration ability of the glomerular capillaries in the kidney. The most prevalent forms of CKD in health care systems are typically the asymptomatic stages conventionally termed CKD stage 4 or below.1,2 Should these asymptomatic stages be called “disease”?
