Predictors of the rate of decline of residual renal function in incident dialysis patients.BackgroundResidual renal function (RRF) influences morbidity, mortality and quality of life in chronic dialysis patients. Few studies have been published on risk factors for loss of RRF in dialysis patients. These studies were either retrospective, performed in a small number of patients, or estimated GFR without a urine collection.MethodsWe analyzed the decline rates of residual GFR (rGFR) prospectively in 522 incident HD and PD patients who had structured follow-up assessments.
