INTRODUCTION: CKD is common, however there has been some debate as to whether the definitions identify only those at high risk, or label many, particularly the elderly, with disease without a clear prognostic role. We aimed to explore the risk of initiating renal replacement therapy (RRT) and mortality in a community CKD cohort, by age.

METHODS: A cohort (GLOMMS-I) with CKD (3 months sustained reduced eGFR and case-note review) had previously been identified. Follow-up was at 6 years. Rate of initiating RRT and mortality were calculated. Age specific mortality rates were compared to the general population.
