Diabetes Standards of Care and Resources for Clinicians and Educators

Kidney Care

Diabetes significantly increases the risk of developing chronic kidney disease (CKD). The American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) population used to have the highest incidence rate of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) among patients with diabetes. This rate has decreased significantly in recent years, due at least in part to good clinical care of patients with diabetes.

To continue this trend toward lower rates of ESRD, emphasis on improving CKD prevention, screening, monitoring, and treatment is as important as ever in AI/AN people with diabetes.
