* Dialysis usually is initiated when eGFR falls below 10 mL/min/1.73 m2.
1Kidney damage with normal eGFR≥90Treat comorbid conditions; slow progression of CKD; reduce cardiovascular risk factors
2Kidney damage with mildly decreased eGFR60-89Estimate progression of CKD
3Kidney damage with moderately decreased eGFR30-59Evaluate and treat complications of CKD
4Kidney damage with severely decreased eGFR15-29Prepare for renal replacement therapy (RRT; dialysis)
