Why Is This Important?

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) and ESRD result in poor quality of life and premature death. ESRD is very costly to treat, such that nearly 25% of the Medicare budget is used to treat people with CKD and ESRD. Diabetes is the most common cause of kidney failure.[ ^1^]


Deaths with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) as the underlying cause of death ICD-10 code: N18.0 (1999-2010), N18.5 (2011 and after)
