Abstract

Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is an important risk factor of the End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). In this study, we investigated whether the protein to creatinine ratio (the ratio of P/C) determined by the semiquantitative urinary stick test and urinary sediments are useful for the early detection of CKD. One hundred sixty patients were classified to four or five groups by P/C ratio and various biochemical markers were analyzed. As a result, the 300 mg/g x Cr of P/C group showed a significantly increased serum cystatin C level. The positive rate of the P/C ratio in CKD stage was significantly increased compared with the conventional protein qualitative analysis. Further, the amounts of urinary sediments in CKD stage 1 to 2 were increased, such as hyaline cast, and pathological casts were increased in CKD stage 3 to 5. Thus, our present study suggests that the ratio of P/C and urinary sediments are useful for the screening of CKD.
