Prevalence of Chronic Kidney Disease in Iranian General Population: A Meta-Analysis and Systematic Review



Prevalence of Chronic Kidney Disease in Iranian General Population: A Meta-Analysis and Systematic Review



Therapeutic Apheresis and Dialysis 22(6): 594-599



The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of CKD in the Iranian general population. In this systematic review and meta-analysis study, international (PubMed, Web of Science, Scopus, and Google scholar) and national databases (SID, Magiran) were searched until December 30, 2017. The quality of the studies was evaluated using the Hoy instrument. Out of 1170 initial studies, 9 studies with a total of 70 605 participants were included in the final stage of this study. Based on the results of the random effect method (95% CI), the overall prevalence of chronic kidney disease in 70 605 people was 15.14% (I2  = 99.77%). The prevalence of CKD in female patients (18.80%) was 1.7 times higher than in male patients (10.83). The results of the present study indicate a higher than the global average prevalence of CKD in Iran and the need for additional attention of policy makers on better planning for control and implementation of screening programs in high-risk populations, such as patients with hypertension and diabetes.
