ALDRETE-VELASCO, JA et al. Chronic kidney disease mortality and its relation to diabetes in Mexico. Med. interna Méx. [online]. 2018, vol.34, n.4, pp.536-550. ISSN 0186-4866.


To analyze the impact in Mexico of the mortality produced by chronic renal failure secondary to diabetes mellitus.


An observational study was done from 1998 to 2014 on the basis of a national registry corresponding to a relatively long period of 17 years, recognizing this pathology as a differentiated nosological entity, using the data mining as methodology of analysis, and avoiding as far as possible the ambiguities or limitations detected in previously published studies.


In the last two decades, the prevalence and mortality rates for chronic renal failure has doubled in Mexico, which means a high human and financial cost, in addition to the fact that this disease significantly reduces the quality of life and the life expectancy of the Mexican adult population.


It is necessary to optimize the care strategies for patients with chronic renal failure, without ruling out the use of effective prevention strategies focused on the general population.
