Abstract

This article provides evidence that the current and growing burden of CKD in racial and ethnic minority populations is likely to be multifactorial involving the interplay of biologic, clinical, social, and behavioral determinants. To eliminate these disparities, crafting successful solutions requires more attention to the constellation of contributing factors not only by specialists, primary care physicians, and other health care providers involved in CKD care, but also by clinical and behavioral scientists, payers of health care, and patients.
