They're changing the way our kidney disease measured to provide a more accurate determination of what stage we are in. Wow! It seems like a small change, but it could have a big impact! Here's the first paragraph from the National Kidney Foundation article:
New York, NY (December 27, 2012) – An updated, global version of the groundbreaking National Kidney Foundation Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative (NKF-KDOQI) guideline Chronic Kidney Disease: Evaluation, Classification, Stratification, will be released tomorrow by the Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO). The new guideline, published in Kidney International Supplements, retains the current chronic kidney disease (CKD) definition but augments the classification system to include albuminuria, or protein in the urine, and cause of disease, as well as GFR stage.
