Chronic kidney disease: assessment and management


This guideline covers care and treatment for people with, or at risk of, chronic kidney disease (CKD). It aims to prevent or delay the progression, and reduce the risk of complications and cardiovascular disease. It also covers managing anaemia and hyperphosphataemia associated with chronic kidney disease.

NICE has produced a COVID-19 rapid guideline on chronic kidney disease. It recommends changes to usual practice to maximise the safety of patients and protect staff from infection during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In November 2021, we updated our guidance on SGLT2 inhibitors for adults with type 2 diabetes and chronic kidney disease. For the new recommendations, see managing chronic kidney disease in the NICE guideline on type 2 diabetes in adults.
