Answer

American College of Physicians guidelines on screening for CKD include the following recommendations:

  • Do not screen for CKD in asymptomatic adults without risk factors for CKD (grade: weak recommendation, low-quality evidence).

  • Do not test for proteinuria in adults with or without diabetes who are currently taking an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEI) or an angiotensin II-receptor blocker (ARB)(grade: weak recommendation, low-quality evidence).
