An estimated 20 million U.S. adults have chronic kidney disease (CKD), which can progress to end stage renal disease (ESRD). Most are unaware of their condition, as the disease is often symptomless until the kidneys fail. Groups at highest risk for ESRD include those with diabetes or hypertension, as well as older adults, African Americans, Hispanics and Native Americans.
