Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a frequent chronic disease with major impact on the health of patients and major interaction with other diseases and therapies. Additionally, the cost of renal replacement therapy is high for health insurance. Although there has been recent progress in the treatment of CKD, prevention is essential to decrease kidney damage.
Some risk factors for developing CKD, such as hypertension, primary kidney diseases, systemic diseases, and diabetes, are well studied and documented. However, there are some factors, such as lifestyle, air pollution, green spaces, nearby traffic, etc., and especially the combined effects of all these factors on the evolution of the kidney function and the development of CKD, which are less studied. In this Special Issue, we would like to focus on this research domain of environmental and lifestyle factors and their influence on the evolution of kidney function and/or the development of CKD. We welcome epidemiological studies and all types of intervention studies.
