Evaluation of the Prevalence and Outcomes of Acute Kidney Disease
Acute kidney disease (AKD) is a condition characterized by sub-acute loss of kidney function. As compared to acute kidney injury (AKI), a condition with an abrupt kidney function, AKD has received little attention from kidney disease researchers. As such, the prevalence and outcomes of AKD are currently unknown. We will use electronic health data from the Yale New Haven Health system to evaluate the prevalence of AKD and kidney related outcomes in participants with AKD.
