CKD-6.1 Reduce the proportion of persons with chronic kidney disease who have elevated blood pressure
About the Data
Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.
Number of persons aged 18 years and over with chronic kidney disease stages 1–4 with measured high systolic (≥140 mmHg) or diastolic (≥90 mmHg) blood pressure.
Number of persons aged 18 years and over with chronic kidney disease stages 1–4 who have blood pressure measurements.
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) stages 1-4 are defined as a urinary albumin/creatinine ratio (ACR) >30 mg/g (single measurement) or estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) between 15 and 59 ml/min/1.73 m². The eGFR is computed using the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) study equation.
Adults are defined as having high blood pressure/hypertension if they have a measurement of mean systolic blood pressure (SBP) ≥140 mm Hg or (b) mean diastolic blood pressure (DBP) ≥90 mm Hg.
Blood pressure is measured by averaging up to 3 blood pressure readings taken during the physical examination in the NHANES mobile examination center. A detailed description of the procedures for blood pressure measurement in the NHANES has been published elsewhere.
