The signs and symptoms of chronic kidney disease (CKD) can be nonspecific, meaning that it may mimic or stem from other conditions. Often, CKD is undetected before irreversible kidney damage has occurred. In response, the UCLA Kidney Health Program developed the UCLA Kidney Function Preservation Pathway for all physicians at UCLA Health to ensure that every patient receives the same superior care every time.
The UCLA Kidney Function Preservation Pathway is based on national and international guidelines, renal best practices and peer reviewed literature.
