Much less is known about the prevalence of the earlier stages of the CKD. Indeed, it has been acknowledged that the majority of the individuals at early stages of CKD have gone undiagnosed. 100 Patients presenting to the hospital and diagnosed with CKD were included in the study after obtaining informed consent until sixty cases were collected. The history of the onset, progression, duration of various symptoms, drug and diet history was noted. In this study population only 37 percent were on hemodialysis while the remaining 63 percent were managed conservatively.
