CRIC (Chronic Renal Insufficiency Cohort Study)

What is chronic renal insufficiency:
It is an early stage of kidney damage.

If you have diabetes or high blood pressure you have a greater chance of kidney problems.

Kidney damage can also lead to heart disease.

You may qualify for this observational study if:

  • You are 21-74 years of age
  • Are not on dialysis
  • Have not had a kidney transplant

    Call one of the centers listed below. We will be happy to discuss the details and do a prescreening interview over the phone.

    You will be compensated for your time involved in this project.
    After the screening visit, commitment is only a one time a year visit.
    All test results will be shared with your M.D., with your approval.
