CKD guidance updated to help improve diagnosis

NICE has updated its clinical guideline on chronic kidney disease (CKD) to include new recommendations on the diagnosis and classification of the condition, and on its relationship with acute kidney injury.

The updated guideline proposes a new system for classification of CKD, which takes into consideration recently published guidance (Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes) on the evaluation and management of the disease.
