Kidney Function, Proteinuria, and Adverse Outcomes

JAMA. 2010;303(20):2030. doi:10.1001/jama.2010.656

To the Editor: Dr Hemmelgarn and colleagues1 analyzed the relationship between kidney function and proteinuria and the risks of mortality, myocardial infarction, and progression to kidney failure using a community-based cohort study with 920 985 adults. They pointed out the problem of the current staging of chronic kidney disease (CKD) without consideration of the severity of proteinuria.
