London: A new study has revealed that people with impaired kidney function are at a higher risk of future stroke than people with normal kidney function.A second study found that even the earliest stages of chronic kidney disease are linked to a higher risk of coronary heart disease.This study suggests that considering signs of early kidney disease, in addition to routinely measured risk factors such as blood pressure and blood cholesterol, modestly improves the identification of people at high risk of cardiovascular disease.
The researchers also found a suggestive association between chronic kidney disease and increased risk of death from causes other than cardiovascular disease or cancer, recommending the need for further studies to investigate this link in more detail.Both the studies are published on bmj.com. ANI
