ABSTRACTBackground: Chronic kidney disease is defined as a decrease in renal function, expressed by a GFR ‹60 mL/ min/1.73m2 SC, shown directly by histological changes on renal biopsy or indirectly by markers of kidney damage.
Objective: To determine the importance of prevention and diagnosis of early chronic kidney disease to improve quality of care for patients with chronic degenerative diseases in primary care.
Material and methods: We studied a sample of n = 64 to which they made a series of studies necessary to evaluate overall condition as well as identification and classification of glomerular filtration.
Results: Of the total sample 43.75% of the sample were counted only patients with diabetes mellitus type 2, was 30.06% of hypertensive patients, only the 3.12% resulted in significant proteinuria, Once we calculated the rate glomerular filtration rate was determined that 45% of the sample are within the stage 2 according to the classification given by the K/DOQUI and that 31% stage 1 having only 2% of total in terminal stages of the disease.
Conclusion: We must not forget the importance of this disease because this disease process is a major cause of death and severe disability especially in our patients, taking into account the role played by the primary care treatment.
