Answer

The Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative (KDOQI) recommended the following classification of chronic renal disease by stage [4, 15] :

  • Stage I disease is defined by a normal glomerular filtration rate (GFR) (> 90 mL/min per 1.73 m2) and persistent albuminuria

  • Stage II disease is characterized by a GFR of 60-89 mL/min per 1.73 m2 and persistent albuminuria

  • Stage III disease is characterized by a GFR of 30-59 mL/min per 1.73 m2

  • Stage IV disease is characterized by a GFR of 15-29 mL/min per 1.73 m2

  • Stage V disease is characterized by a GFR of less than 15 mL/min per 1.73 m2 or end-stage renal disease (ESRD)
