Screening of residents of the city of Nur-Sultan was carried out by B.B.NURA doctors

On August 6, at the base of Public Clinic No.4, a professional team of nephrologists examined more than 100 residents of the capital to identify chronic kidney disease (CKD).
During the screening, doctors measure the weight and blood pressure of patients, and blood is also taken to determine creatinine levels. At risk are people with arterial hypertension, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Also, adverse factors contributing to the development of kidney diseases are poor nutrition, a sedentary lifestyle and hypothermia.
The chief nephrologist of Nur-Sultan, the head of the nephrology department of the B.B.NURA Hospitals Group Turebekov Duman Kozhebaevich considers it necessary to timely take into account and correct the risk factors that patients have, apply early nephroprotective therapy and increase the alertness of primary care physicians to prevent the progression of CKD by implementation in mandatory practice of glomerular filtration rate calculation and its interpretation.
During the screening, CKD was revealed in the group of patients with arterial hypertension and diabetes mellitus in the following order: Stage 1 – 41 patients, Stage 2 – 43, Stage 3 – 15, Stage 4 – Stage 1, Stage 5 – 0 patients. More significant is the 3 stage of chronic kidney disease (15%) subject to dynamic observation by a nephrologist.
Currently, more than 6,500 people are receiving hemodialysis in Kazakhstan, of whom about 400 patients are receiving renal replacement therapy in Nur-Sultan. More than 2500 need a transplant.
