Abstract

Evidence suggesting important ethnic differences in chronic kidney disease (CKD) prevalence comes mainly from the United States, and data among various ethnic groups in Europe are lacking. We therefore assessed differences in CKD in 6 ethnic groups living in the Netherlands and explored to what extent the observed differences could be accounted for by differences in conventional cardiovascular risk factors (smoking, physical activity, obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and hypercholesterolemia).
