  3. 3. KEEP- SAKE Initiative background In 2007 the Chronic Kidney Disease Initiative was started by a former SNPhA Regional Facilitator Cornetta Levi, Pharm. D. and Abbott Medical Science Liaisons Nana Wiafe, Pharm. D. and Janinah Barreto, Pharm. D. The purpose of the initiative is to implement programs and projects to make people aware of the health disparities in chronic kidney disease and to utilize all resources to educate those at a higher risk about the prevalence, prevention, treatment, and management of the underlying causes of CKD. The name KEEP-SAKE stands for Kidney Early Evaluation Program – SNPhA and Abbott Kidney Education. SNPhA Mission SNPhA is an educational service association of pharmacy students who are concerned about pharmacy and healthcare related issues, and the poor minority representation in pharmacy and other health- related professions. The purpose of SNPhA is to plan, organize, coordinate and execute programs geared toward the improvement for the health, educational, and social environment of the community. Abbott Renal Care Mission To implement innovative strategies to improve healthcare delivery, educate, develop disease management programs, prevention and treatment for African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans and other underserved populations. Establish strategic relationships with governments, diverse organizations, communities and individuals that will achieve "best practices", resulting in improved outcomes. SNPhA / Abbott Collaborative Mission The initiative allows both organizations to make a great impact on healthcare by aiding in improving the health of CKD patients and decreasing the healthcare disparities in minority communities, an objective that supports both organizations separate missions.

Each kidney weighs about ¼ pound and contains approximately one million filtering units called nephrons. Each nephron is made of a glomerulus and a tubule. The glomerulus is a miniature filtering or sieving device while the tubule is a tiny tube like structure attached to the glomerulus. 4
  5. 5. The kidneys are connected to the urinary bladder by tubes called ureters. Urine is stored in the urinary bladder until the bladder is emptied by urinating. The bladder is connected to the outside of the body by another tube like structure called the urethra. The main function of the kidneys is to remove waste products and excess water from the blood. The kidneys process about 200 liters of blood every day and produce about two liters of urine. The waste products are generated from normal metabolic processes including the breakdown of active tissues, ingested foods, and other substances. The kidneys allow consumption of a variety of foods, drugs, vitamins and supplements, additives, and excess fluids without worry that toxic by–products will build up to harmful levels. The kidney also plays a major role in regulating levels of various minerals such as calcium, sodium, and potassium in the blood. • As the first step in filtration, blood is delivered into the glomeruli by microscopic leaky blood vessels called capillaries. Here, blood is filtered of waste products and fluid while red blood cells, proteins, and large molecules are retained in the capillaries. In addition to wastes, some useful substances are also filtered out. The filtrate collects in a sac called Bowman's capsule and drains into the tubule. 5
  6. 6. • The tubules are the next step in the filtration process. The tubules are lined with highly functional cells which process the filtrate, reabsorbing water and chemicals useful to the body while secreting some additional waste products into the tubule. The kidneys also produce certain hormones that have important functions in the body, including the following: • Activate form of vitamin D (calcitriol or 1,25 dihydroxy–vitamin D), which regulates absorption of calcium and phosphorus from foods, promoting formation of strong bone. • Erythropoietin (EPO), which stimulates the bone marrow to produce red blood cells. • Renin, which regulates blood volume and blood pressure. What is the difference between kidney failure and kidney disease? Kidney failure • Kidney failure occurs when the kidneys partly or completely lose their ability to carry out normal functions. • This is dangerous because water, waste, and toxic substances build up that normally are removed from the body by the kidneys. • It also causes other problems such as anemia, high blood pressure, acidosis (excessive acidity of body fluids), disorders of cholesterol and fatty acids, and bone disease in the body by impairing hormone production by the kidneys. Chronic kidney disease Chronic kidney disease is when one suffers from gradual and usually permanent loss of kidney function over time. This happens gradually over time, usually months to years. Chronic kidney disease is divided into five stages of increasing severity (see Table 1 below). Stage 5 chronic kidney failure is also referred to as end–stage renal disease, wherein there is total or near–total loss of kidney function and patients need dialysis or transplantation to stay alive. The term "renal" refers to the kidney, so another name for kidney failure is "renal failure." Mild kidney disease is often called renal insufficiency. Unlike chronic kidney disease, acute kidney failure develops rapidly, over days or weeks. 6
  7. 7. • Acute kidney failure usually develops in response to a disorder that directly affects the kidney, its blood supply, or urine flow from it. • Acute kidney failure usually does not cause permanent damage to the kidneys. With appropriate treatment of the underlying condition, it is often reversible, with complete recovery. • In some cases, though, it may progress to chronic kidney disease. Table 1. Stages of Chronic Kidney Disease GFR* Stage Description mL/min/1.73m2 Slight kidney damage with normal or increased 1 More than 90 filtration 2 Mild decrease in kidney function 60–89 3 Moderate decrease in kidney function 30–59 4 Severe decrease in kidney function 15–29 5 Kidney failure requiring dialysis or transplantation Less than 15 *GFR is glomerular filtration rate, a measurement of the kidney's function. Chronic Kidney Disease Causes Although chronic kidney disease sometimes results from primary diseases of the kidneys themselves, the major causes are diabetes and high blood pressure. • Type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus cause a condition called diabetic nephropathy, which is the leading cause of kidney disease in the United States. • High blood pressure (hypertension), if not controlled, can damage the kidneys over time. • Glomerulonephritis is the inflammation and damage of the filtration system of the kidneys and can cause kidney failure. Postinfectious conditions and lupus are among the many causes of glomerulonephritis. 7
  8. 8. • Polycystic kidney disease is an example of a hereditary cause of chronic kidney disease wherein both kidneys have multiple cysts. • Use of analgesics such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) and ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) regularly over long durations of time can cause analgesic nephropathy, another cause of kidney disease. Certain other medications can also damage the kidneys. • Clogging and hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis) leading to the kidneys causes a condition called ischemic nephropathy, which is another cause of progressive kidney damage. • Obstruction of the flow of urine by stones, an enlarged prostate, strictures (narrowings), or cancers may also cause kidney disease. • Other causes of chronic kidney disease include HIV infection, sickle cell disease, heroin abuse, amyloidosis, kidney stones, chronic kidney infections, and certain cancers. If you have any of the following conditions, you are at higher–than–normal risk of developing chronic renal disease. Your kidney functions may need to be monitored regularly. • Diabetes mellitus type 1 or 2 • High blood pressure • High cholesterol • Heart disease • Liver disease • Kidney disease • Amyloidosis • Sickle cell disease • Systemic Lupus erythematosus • Vascular diseases such as arteritis, vasculitis, or fibromuscular dysplasia • Vesicoureteral reflux (a urinary tract problem in which urine travels the wrong way) • Problems of the joints or muscles that require regular use of anti–inflammatory medications • If you have a family history of kidney disease. • Chronic kidney disease is a growing health problem in the United States. A report by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) determined that 16.8% of all adults above the age of 20 years have chronic kidney disease. Thus, one in six individuals have kidney disease, and over 400,000 patients are on dialysis or have received kidney transplants. About 67,000 people die each year because of kidney failure. 8
  9. 9. • The prevalence of chronic kidney disease has increased by 16% from the previous decade. The increasing incidence of diabetes mellitus, hypertension (high blood pressure), obesity, and an aging population have led to this increase in kidney disease. • Chronic kidney disease is more prevalent among individuals above 60 years of age (39.4%). • Kidney disease is more common among Hispanic, African American, Asian or Pacific Islander, and Native American people. Relative risks compared to Whites: • African Americans 3.8 X • Native Americans 2.0 X • Asians 1.3 X Chronic Kidney Disease Symptoms The kidneys are remarkable in their ability to compensate for problems in their function. That is why chronic kidney disease may progress without symptoms for a long time until only very minimal kidney function is left. Because the kidneys perform so many functions for the body, kidney disease can affect the body in a large number of different ways. Symptoms vary greatly. Several different body systems may be affected. Notably, most patients have no decrease in urine output even with very advanced chronic kidney disease. • Fatigue and weakness (from anemia or accumulation of waste products in the body) • Loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting • Need to urinate frequently, especially at night • Swelling of the legs and puffiness around the eyes (fluid retention) • Itching, easy bruising, and pale skin (from anemia) • Headaches, numbness in the feet or hands (peripheral neuropathy), disturbed sleep, altered mental status (encephalopathy from the accumulation of waste products or uremic poisons), and restless legs syndrome • High blood pressure, chest pain due to pericarditis (inflammation around the heart) • Shortness of breath from fluid in lungs • Bleeding (poor blood clotting) • Bone pain and fractures 9
  10. 10. • Decreased sexual interest and erectile dysfunction When to Seek Medical Care Several signs and symptoms may suggest complications of chronic kidney disease. Call your healthcare provider if you notice any of the following symptoms: • Change in energy level or strength • Increased water retention (puffiness or swelling) in the legs, around the eyes or in other parts of the body • Shortness of breath or change from normal breathing • Nausea or vomiting • Light–headedness • Severe bone or joint pain • Easy bruisability • Itching If you have diabetes, high blood pressure, or kidney problems, see your healthcare provider right away if you know or suspect that you are pregnant. See your health care provider as recommended for monitoring and treatment of chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. Some signs and symptoms represent the possibility of a severe complication of chronic kidney disease and warrant a visit to the nearest hospital emergency department. • Change in level of consciousness – extreme sleepiness or difficult to awaken • Fainting • Chest pain • Difficulty breathing • Severe nausea and vomiting • Severe bleeding (from any source) • Severe weakness 10
  11. 11. Exams and Tests Chronic kidney disease usually causes no symptoms in its early stages. Only lab tests can detect any developing problems. Anyone at increased risk for chronic kidney disease should be routinely tested for development of this disease. • Urine, blood, and imaging tests (x–rays) are used to detect kidney disease, as well as to follow its progress. • All of these tests have limitations. They are often used together to develop a picture of the nature and extent of the kidney disease. • In general, this testing can be performed on an outpatient basis. Urine tests Urinalysis: Analysis of the urine affords enormous insight into the function of the kidneys. The first step in urinalysis is doing a dipstick test. The dipstick has reagents that check the urine for the presence of various normal and abnormal constituents including protein. Then, the urine is examined under a microscope to look for red and white blood cells, and the presence of casts and crystals (solids). Only minimal quantities of albumin (protein) are present in urine normally. A positive result on a dipstick test for protein is abnormal. More sensitive than a dipstick test for protein is a laboratory estimation of the urine albumin (protein) and creatinine in the urine. The ratio of albumin (protein) and creatinine in the urine provides a good estimate of albumin (protein) excretion per day. Twenty–four–hour urine tests: This test requires you to collect all of your urine for 24 consecutive hours. The urine may be analyzed for protein and waste products (urea nitrogen and creatinine). The presence of protein in the urine indicates kidney damage. The amount of creatinine and urea excreted in the urine can be used to calculate the level of kidney function and the glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Glomerular filtration rate (GFR): The GFR is a standard means of expressing overall kidney function. As kidney disease progresses, GFR falls. The normal GFR is about 100–140 mL/min in men and 85–115 mL/ min in women. It decreases in most people with age. The GFR may be calculated from the amount of waste products in the 24–hour urine or by using special markers administered intravenously. Patients are divided into five stages of chronic kidney disease based on their GFR (see Table 1 above). Blood tests Creatinine and urea (BUN) in the blood: Blood urea nitrogen and serum creatinine are the most commonly used blood tests to screen for, and monitor renal disease. Creatinine is a breakdown product of normal muscle breakdown. Urea is the waste product of breakdown of protein. The level of these substances rises in the blood as kidney function worsens. 11
  12. 12. Estimated GFR (eGFR): The laboratory or your physician may calculate an estimated GFR using the information from your blood work. It is important to be aware of your estimated GFR and stage of chronic kidney disease. Your physician uses your stage of kidney disease to recommend additional testing and suggestions on management. Electrolyte levels and acid–base balance: Kidney dysfunction causes imbalances in electrolytes, especially potassium, phosphorus, and calcium. High potassium (hyperkalemia) is a particular concern. The acid–base balance of the blood is usually disrupted as well. Decreased production of the active form of vitamin D can cause low levels of calcium in the blood. Inability to excrete phosphorus by failing kidneys causes its levels in the blood to rise. Testicular or ovarian hormone levels may also be abnormal. Blood cell counts: Because kidney disease disrupts blood cell production and shortens the survival of red cells, the red blood cell count and hemoglobin may be low (anemia). Some patients may also have iron deficiency due to blood loss in their gastrointestinal system. Other nutritional deficiencies may also impair the production of red cells. Other tests Ultrasound: Ultrasound is often used in the diagnosis of kidney disease. An ultrasound is a noninvasive type of test. In general, kidneys are shrunken in size in chronic kidney disease, although they may be normal or even large in size in cases caused by adult polycystic kidney disease, diabetic nephropathy, and amyloidosis. Ultrasound may also be used to diagnose the presence of urinary obstruction, kidney stones and also to assess the blood flow into the kidneys. Biopsy: A sample of the kidney tissue (biopsy) is sometimes required in cases in which the cause of the kidney disease is unclear. Usually, a biopsy can be collected with local anesthesia only by introducing a needle through the skin into the kidney. This is usually done as an outpatient procedure, though some institutions may require an overnight hospital stay. Chronic Kidney Disease Treatment Self–Care at Home Chronic kidney disease is a disease that must be managed in close consultation with your healthcare provider. Self–treatment is not appropriate. • There are, however, several important dietary rules you can follow to help slow the progression of your kidney disease and decrease the likelihood of complications. • This is a complex process and must be individualized, generally with the help of your healthcare provider and a registered dietitian. 12
  13. 13. The following are general dietary guidelines: • Protein restriction: Decreasing protein intake may slow the progression of chronic kidney disease. A dietitian can help you determine the appropriate amount of protein for you. • Salt restriction: Limit to 4–6 grams a day to avoid fluid retention and help control high blood pressure. • Fluid intake: Excessive water intake does not help prevent kidney disease. In fact, your doctor may recommend restriction of water intake. • Potassium restriction: This is necessary in advanced kidney disease because the kidneys are unable to remove potassium. High levels of potassium can cause abnormal heart rhythms. Examples of foods high in potassium include bananas, oranges, nuts, and potatoes. • Phosphorus restriction: Decreasing phosphorus intake is recommended to protect bones. Eggs, beans, cola drinks, and dairy products are examples of foods high in phosphorus. Other important measures that you can take include: • Carefully follow prescribed regimens to control your blood pressure and/or diabetes. • Stop smoking • Lose excess weight In chronic kidney disease, several medications can be toxic to the kidneys and may need to be avoided or given in adjusted doses. Among over–the–counter medications, the following need to be avoided or used with caution: • Certain analgesics – Aspirin; non-steroidal anti–inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs, such as ibuprofen [Motrin, for example]) • Fleets or phosphor-soda enemas because of their high content of phosphorus • Laxatives and antacids containing magnesium and aluminum such as Milk of Magnesia and Mylanta • Ulcer medication H2–receptor antagonists – cimetidine (Tagamet), ranitidine (Zantac), (decreased dosage with kidney disease) • Decongestants like pseudoephedrine (Sudafed) especially if you have high blood pressure • Alka Seltzer, since this contains a lot of salt • Herbal medications 13
  14. 14. If you have a condition such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol underlying your chronic kidney disease, take all medications as directed and see your healthcare provider as recommended for follow–up and monitoring. Medical Treatment There is no cure for chronic kidney disease. The four goals of therapy are as follows: 1. To slow the progression of disease 2. To treat underlying causes and contributing factors 3. To treat complications of disease 4. To replace lost kidney function Strategies for slowing progression and treating conditions underlying chronic kidney disease include the following: • Control of blood glucose: Maintaining good control of diabetes is critical. People with diabetes who do not control their blood glucose have a much higher risk of all complications of diabetes, including chronic kidney disease. • Control of high blood pressure: This also slows progression of chronic kidney disease. It is recommended to keep your blood pressure below 130/80 mm Hg if you have kidney disease. It is often useful to monitor blood pressure at home. Blood pressure medications known as angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors or angiotensin receptor blockers (ARB) have special benefit in protecting the kidneys. • Diet: Diet control is essential to slowing progression of chronic kidney disease and should be done in close consultation with your health care provider and a dietitian. For some general guidelines, see the Self–Care at Home section of this article. The complications of chronic kidney disease may require medical treatment. • Fluid retention can be treated with any of a number of diuretic medications, which remove excess water from the body. However, these drugs are not suitable for all patients. • Anemia can be treated with erythropoiesis stimulating agents. Erythropoiesis stimulating agents are a group of drugs that replace the deficiency of erythropoietin, which is normally produced by healthy kidneys. Often, patients treated with such drugs require either to take iron by mouth or sometimes even intravenously. • Bone disease develops in patients due to an inability to excrete phosphorus and a failure to form activated Vitamin D. In such circumstances, your physician may prescribe drugs binding phosphorus in the gut, and may prescribe active forms of vitamin D. 14
  15. 15. • Acidosis may develop with kidney disease. The acidosis may cause breakdown of proteins, inflammation and bone disease. If the acidosis is significant, your doctor may use drugs such as sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) to correct the problem. Adopted from eMedicine Health - Chronic Kidney Disease Affects Everyone National Kidney Foundation KEEP- Screening Information KEEP (Kidney Early Evaluation Program) is an early detection and early intervention program for people at increased risk of kidney disease. It is a free; one-day health screening that involves a comprehensive process of registration, screening questionnaire, blood pressure and weight measurements, lab testing and physician interview. KEEP also includes a follow-up component for individuals whose test values are outside the normal range. Goal of KEEP • To slow or eliminate the progression of serious kidney disease Objectives of KEEP • To identify individuals at increased risk for kidney disease due primarily to high blood pressure and diabetes via thorough health screenings • To encourage patients to seek further evaluation from a physician and to take measures to improve their health. 15
  16. 16. • To empower individuals to take action to prevent or delay the onset of kidney disease or kidney failure • To develop a physician referral network for individuals identified as being at increased risk for kidney disease, high blood pressure and diabetes. • To provide appropriate follow-up for individuals who are identified as being at increased risk.
