Introduction: Chronic kidney diseases (CKD) comprise the conditions that damage the kidneys and decrease their ability to keep you healthy by doing the jobs listed. If kidney disease gets worse, wastes can build up to high levels in the blood and make you feel sick.

Of the 7462 screened subjects, 6668 eligible subjects were enrolled in this study. We obtained personal and medical history data through a specifically designed questionnaire.
