For example, if that patient has stage 3 kidney disease with a little proteinuria, and if that patient is taking an ACE inhibitor or an angiotensin-receptor blocker and the HIV clinician feels comfortable managing high blood pressure, diabetes, or other risk factors--that patient may not need to return to a nephrologist as long as kidney function is stable.

In considering the value of recommending screening for CKD along with conventional CVD risk factors in selected individuals, data showing that the risk of CVD is better correlated with proteinuria (albuminuria) than with GFR alone are particularly relevant because proteinuria is virtually always a marker of kidney disease and is not a conventional CVD risk factor.
