INDEPENDENT RISK FACTOR FOR CKD PROGRESSION

Metabolic acidosis is both a complication of CKD and a cause of its progression1,4,10,17

Metabolic acidosis is associated with an increased risk of CKD progression and risk of mortality39-44


Increasing serum bicarbonate has been shown to slow CKD progression46-49

KDIGO guidelines recommend using validated risk prediction tools to evaluate patient risk of progression to kidney failure6
