Nephrologists and Non-Nephrologists Alike Report Increased Attention on Chronic Kidney Disease
Date:5/23/2008

EXTON, Pa., May 23 /PRNewswire/ -- BioTrends Research Group, Inc. released a Special Report: "Referrals in Nephrology," providing insight into the referral patterns and co-management of patients with Chronic Kidney Disease (pre-dialysis) from the perspective of Nephrologists, Cardiologists, Endocrinologists, and Primary Care Physicians. The newly released syndicated report offers a comprehensive view, based on qualitative interviews with 40 physicians and quantitative feedback from close to 300 physicians, about awareness of CKD, triggers for referral, knowledge of and treatment with therapies for renal anemia, secondary hyperparathyroidism, hyperphosphatemia, and hypertension. It also includes 10 interviews with Managed Care Organizations to determine their involvement in referrals to Nephrologists and control mechanisms for various classes and brands of medications.

According to the study, awareness of CKD seems to be growing among all specialties. Although there is high agreement around the benefits of early screening for CKD, there is relatively low familiarity with the National Kidney Foundation's CKD Staging Classification and virtually no familiarity with the Kidney Early Evaluation Program (KEEP), a program designed to raise awareness, educate, provide physician referrals, and ultimately delay disease progression. While Endocrinologists and Cardiologists do refer patients with CKD to Nephrologists, the majority of referrals come from PCPs. Managed care does not play a role in when patients are referred to Nephrologists.

In terms of treatment of CKD patients, while all specialties are familiar with and comfortable prescribing ACEs and ARBs, there are differences between specialties when it comes to phosphate binders, PTH modifiers, ESAs, and IV Iron. Cardiologists are least interested in managing renal issues in patients with CKD. Some of the differences in level of involvement are specialty driven, whereas others seem to be based on prac
