Increased risk of CKD in patients with rosacea: A nationwide population-based matched cohort study

By ASN Staff

A peer-reviewed study from Taiwan released in the Public Library of Science (PLOS), concluded that “rosacea is an independent risk factor for CKD. High rosacea severity and old age further increased CKD risk in patients with rosacea. Careful monitoring for CKD development should be included as part of integrated care for patients with rosacea”. The open access study can be found on the PLOS website, where you can find the full study including materials and methodology, results, discussion, and relevant figures.
